Skip the smoky-eyed trend and try this vintage makeup look instead

If you watch old movies, you may have noticed that many actresses wear similar makeup. Red lips, black winged liner and flirty false lashes are a classic combination that’s always in style. Even though smoky-eyed makeup is popular, this vintage style is timeless and worth the effort.
This makeup style is all about balance, so concentrate on your eyes and lips. Fawn and cream eye shadow colors make the black eyeliner stand out. The cheeks are relatively neutral here because the lips are meant to steal the show. If you don’t usually use lip liner, it’s a good idea to do so when wearing red lipstick. The liner will prevent the pigment from traveling into the small lines around your mouth and will serve as a base color to prolong the crimson hue.

1. Apply moisturizer to your face before doing anything else. Makeup adheres better to hydrated skin.
2. Apply makeup primer to your T-zone to prevent oil from disrupting your foundation during the day. Tip: Primer can also reduce the appearance of pores and help foundation adhere better.
3. Apply liquid foundation with a foundation brush to even out your skin.
4. Dot liquid concealer onto your face to create a more realistic look. Foundation can make your face look one-dimensional, Apply the concealer in the center of your forehead, below your eyes, along the center of your nose, above the Cupid’s bow and onto the center of your chin. Buff it into the foundation with a flat-topped buffing brush.
5. Set and give the concealer a matte finish by patting powder foundation onto your T-zone with a short-bristled powder brush. Tip: If you don’t have powder foundation, you can substitute translucent setting powder here.
6. Brush bronzer onto the tops of your cheekbones with a cheek brush to warm up your complexion. Sweep additional bronzer along the hairline beginning near your ear, and then sweep it up to the outer corners of your forehead.
7. Pat on peachy-orange blush with the cheek brush to give your cheeks a kiss of color.
8. Sweep matte fawn eye shadow onto your skin with a blending brush to define the crease of your eye. Move the brush back and forth in windshield wiper motions to diffuse the color.
9. Pat matte cream eye shadow onto the inner two-thirds of your eyelid with a shading brush.
10. Begin lining the upper lid at the center using a felt-tipped liquid eyeliner pen for precision, then drag the pen toward the outer corner. Lift the pen and draw a small wing, then join the wing with the lined area of your lid for that vintage look.
11. Apply one or two coats of black mascara to both the upper and lower lashes.
12. Hold the false lashes with the tweezers, and apply a small amount of lash glue onto the lash band. Let the glue set for 10 seconds, and then apply the lashes just above your upper lash line.
13. Line your lips with the apple red lip liner pencil, and then fill them in with liner as well.
14. Apply matching red lipstick with a lip brush. Tip: Patting the product in will prevent brush marks.
Stay pretty!
