Old Hollywood Revisited! by Emily Boyd

The makeup trend on the red carpet seems to be channeling Old Hollywood: dramatic lashes, bold lips and natural cheeks. This look is easy and one of my favorites.

After foundation and brows, sweep a neutral base over entire lid and brow bone. Using a smooth eye pencil start on top lid and line lashline, moving outward slowly thikening line making bolder from center of lid to outer corner. If the line doesn’t come out as straight as you’d like, use a disposable eyeshadow applicator to smudge line softly making it easy. Then line inner bottom lashline. For a bolder liner, use a liquid liner ontop of pencil just on the lashline. Use a light goldish brown just on the crease of lid blending lightly over lid and stopping before liner. Use a shadow brush and lightly line bottom outer lash line for a light smoky look. Curl lashes and apply 2-3 coats of mascara, not letting them dry between each coat.

Classic Hollywood Glam

Red lips complete this look. Pick a red shade that looks good against your skin by either red clothing or going to the paint section in a store and use paint sample cards to find what shade looks best with your skin tone. Red is a daring and tricky color to perfect. Start light and go bolder if needed. I love using a stain and topping with lip balm or gloss.
Finish off your look with natural cheeks with either a light blush and or light bronzer.

Look your best!    Feel your best!    Be your best!
