That Old Hollywood Glamour

I often find myself thinking that I might of been born in the wrong era. My obsession with high waist lines, saddle shoes, and Frank Sinatra hasn't always seemed to match up with today's society. But I have learned to embrace it! There is so much we can learn from the timeless actresses of Hollywood. Such as Audrey Hepburn's reinvention of the Little Black Dress in Breakfast at Tiffany's to Marilyn Monroe's infamous red lips and blonde curls. 

Inspired by the style icons of Old Hollywood, I put my own twist on the classic cat-eye and red lip!

Always, Miss C.

Let's begin with fresh face and all our necessary makeup!

 Here we have:

- Sephora brown eyeshadow pallets
- CoverGirl Clump Crusher
- Stila and NYC red lipsticks
- (2)Eyeshadow brush
- NYC liquid eyeliner

Next, cover your eyelids (lightly) in a white and cream colored eyeshadow. Cover from the eyelash line to the brow line.

 Then, take your brush and the darkest brown shadow and place it in the crease of your eyelid. It should give some depth to your eye and a slight smokey effect. 

 With your second brush, place some of the white shadow in the corners of your eyes and on the bottom lash line. This will make your eyes look wider and bright!

Now comes my favorite part....EYELINER AND MASCARA! 
With the liquid eyeliner, paint along your top lash line and slowly build the thickness and wing.

Then, brush on a few coats of mascara and we are done with the eyes!

Red lips can be tricky and messy, so I recommend outlining your lips with the sides of the lipstick or lip liner. This will help you stay within your lip line and avoid smudging. 

Finally we are done! Rock this retro look on nights out in the city, going to class, or whenever you want to feel some Old Hollywood glamour.
