1940’s Fashion – Get the Makeup Look of Linda Darnell

Linda Darnell summer

I love Linda Darnell. And this is an awesome 40’s poolside pin-up inspired look. Here’s what I did to get this better than the girl-next-door look:

FACE: It’s summer and I don’t want a heavy foundation. Nobody does. Under the eyes with a concealer brush, I applied and blended MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC30. With a kabuki brush, I applied Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Foundation Powder in Natural Ivory. It has the added benefit of SPF 20. In… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Evil Shades Deviant Lipstick in Devilista Review

Evil Shades Deviant Lipstick in Devilista Swatch

I ordered 3 Deviant Lipsticks and a few other lippies from the indie cosmetic line, Evil Shades. And I’m happy that I did. I have been very happy with the 6 items that I ordered. I was going to review/swatch all the items in one article,  but each deserve their own spotlight. Especially a lipstick that is pin-up perfect, rockabilly red, and could easily be rocked by Robert Smith.

Ursula Andress Makeup Look

Ursula with black hair and I love it! I’m guessing this pic is from the 60’s or maybe the early 70’s.

This makeup look works for most complexion but I think it would be amazing on medium to dark complexions.  Here is what I used to get a similar look to Ursula’s… Continue reading | 9 Comments

More 1950’s Fashion: Get The Makeup Look of Ursula Thiess

April 1954

I love Ursula’s look on this Photoplay cover. It is such a timeless makeup look. It’s all about a flawless complexion and luscious lips. I also find her hair worn down very sexy. Many of the pictures of early 1950’s starlets feature their hair curled and worn up. This look really works with many complexions but it looks really amazing on warm skintones with brunette or black hair. To get this timeless look:

FACE: For skin this flawless, most people will need to apply a… Continue reading | 3 Comments
