Transform Yourself into the Classic Starlet
By Doe Deere
This type of makeup is favorited by glamorous divas like Christina Aguilera’s and girls who aspire to look like living pinups—and with good reason. It accentuates all the right parts of the face, making it universally flattering, not to mention exquisitely feminine! It’s perfect for going out at night when you need that extra oomph!
What you need is some liquid liner, gray eyeshadow or pencil and, of course, bright red lipstick! Start out by evening our your skin with foundation and concealer. Apply 3 coats of mascara to your top lashes (my recent favorite is Falsies by Maybelline) and draw a flicked line close to the lashes with liner. Define creases with medium-gray pencil and just below lower lashes with a pencil; blend. Lips are the star of the look, so let ‘em shine! Draw an outline with red pencil and fill in with vibrant red lipstick using a brush, or, if you’re experienced, directly from the bullet. Looking for a true red pin-up shade? Try Lime Crime Retrofuturist, it has the perfect balance of yellow & blue to make it suitable for all skintones. Not sure about blush? Dab some lipstick high onto your cheeks with a finger and blend. Last but not least: draw a tiny beauty mark with liquid liner. Voila!
