Since I uploaded the pics from one of the shoots I did makeup for, I've had a couple of requests to share how I did this 1950's look. So here goes!
(I know it would be a lot easier doing a video or something, but I'm still building up the confidence. Plus I really hate the sound of my own voice lol)
This look was completed almost exclusively with MAC products, but a similar look can be achieved with products from other brands :)
A close up.
I moisturised the face with MAC Studio Moisture Cream.
I then applied Studio Fix Fluid foundation in NC15 with a foundation brush and then buffed it in with a 187 brush.
I used Select Moisture Cover concealer underneath the eyes, over any redness on the face and a tiny bit on the eyelids to act as a primer. Then blend, blend, blend!
I then set this all with Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in 'Light'.
For the eyes I used a Pro Longwear Paint Pot in 'Painterly' over the eyelid. These are literally my favourite things in the entire world! They go on the lid as a cream but it dries to a powdery finish and literally does not move once it's on. It's really really good to use as a colour on its own or even as a primer for your eyeshadow.
I then used a MAC eyeshadow in 'Cork' for the crease. Once I blended the two shades together with a 217 brush, I applied Mac Fluidline gel liner in 'Blacktrack', making sure the flick pointed up at almost a 45 degree angle.
I used Ardell individual lashes rather than strip lashes because they give a much more natural look :)
For the eyebrows I used MAC eyebrow pencil in Spiked.
For contouring the cheekbones I used Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in 'Medium Dark'.
For blush I used a MAC Powder Blush in 'Gingerly'.
For highlight I used the 'Vanilla' Pigment on the top the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose.
I used a Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in 'What A Blast!' to line and fill the lips and then went over this with 'Morange' lipstick. Don't be afraid to overdraw the lip line in order to create fuller lips or a more exaggerated cupids bow :)
Hope this was enough information? Let me know if you want to know anything else :)
