My favorite fashion forward makeup style
I think the reason that we have seen this makeup style over and over again since the 1940’s is because it is simple, beautiful and elegant. Every woman can carry it off for their day makeup or a glamours event.
To me the glowing complexion, neutral eyeshadow, soft cheek color and BOLD lips emulate autumn in the prairies. It’s a look that you can rock behind the scenes or will put you center stage.
Here I’ve used Face Atelier Ultra Skin topped with CoverFX Illuminating primer on a damp sponge and cheeks are buffed with Revlon Cream blush in Charmed to create a beautiful canvas. The eye lids and brows are highlighted with Smashbox Limitless 15 Hr Wear Cream Shadow and a MAC Cosmetics light neutral shadow contours the crease. The upper lash line is tightlined with Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes liner for drama and lashes are lightly coated with Smashbox Eyebrightening mascara. The crowning glory of this makeup look is the lips, which are coated with Revlon Ultimate Suede Lipstick, Backstage.
