1950 Makeup

Posted on

As someone who loves to experiment with makeup looks, I often find that I draw a lot of inspiration from different eras. The 1950’s was a time full of chic elegance and classic beauty, paired with a hint of femininity. So, I thought it would be fun to create a 1950’s inspired makeup look!

I started off the look by priming my skin and then applying my usual foundation. I applied bronzer for a sun-kissed effect and just a tiny bit of blush for a delicate rosy glow. Once I had all of the basics in place, I was ready to start on the fun part – the eyes!

Cat-eye with Eyeliner

The key to achieving this vintage-inspired look is to perfect the cat-eye with eyeliner. I used a liquid eyeliner, which creates a beautiful, bold line. To get the right shape, I drew the wing and then connected it to the top and bottom lash line, making sure to draw the wing a bit longer than usual.

Soft & Sultry

To give the eyes a soft and sultry feel, I used a pale brown eyeshadow and combined it with a creamy ivory shadow in the inner corners. I applied the shadows using a blending brush and moved the brush in an outward motion to ensure a flawless application. This gave the eyes a shimmery, subtle glam effect.

Lush Lashes

When it comes to a classic 1950’s look, long, full lashes are a definite must-have! To achieve this, I applied several coats of mascara and curled my lashes for extra definition and volume. I also used a lash comb to separate my lashes and make sure that no clumps were visible. The result was luscious, glamorous lashes that perfectly completed the vintage look.

Overall, I absolutely loved the way this look came out and I’m excited to try out more 1950’s inspired makeup looks in the near future. It’s such a classic and timeless look that never fails to make me feel confident and beautiful. So I encourage all of you to get creative, have fun, and experiment with different looks from different eras to create something completely unique to you!
