Subtle Sexy 60's Makeup

 Hey beauties!

This is an older FOTD that has a subtle sexy 60's vibe with a slightly defined but more blended crease, and a small cat eye that extends all the way into the inner eye corner, creating a sexier feline shape for those ladies who have rounder eyes. This is a very cool toned look so you can use warmer crease colours if you would prefer, but I've also kept the cheeks & lips cool toned as well. I really adore this look & I hope you all like it!
Face: Unsure of the foundation/ concealer combination as it is a bit heavier then what I have been wearing lately, but I think I used Nyx Pinky Blush, this was before I had Laguna so bronzer would have been a Christian Dior sample I had at the time & Nude by Nature Eye Definer to contour with Mac Lightscapade as a highlight.
Eyes: UD Naked 2 Palette: Foxy & Bootycall Applied together all over the lid with Bootycall as a highlight on the browbone & inner corner
Tease Blended into the crease with a fluffy brush so there are no harsh lines
Snakebite blended just above Tease & also on the lower lash line.
Blackout Added definition in the crease by using a bullet brush and then blended out again with Tease
UD liner in 'Whiskey' to line the waterline & lower lash line.
Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner starting from the middle of the lash line to draw outwards and a slight wing to meet the crease colour, and then going right into the inner corner, accentuating it by going onto the lower lashline slightly.
 Max Factor False Lash Effect
Lips: Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart mixed with a purple lipstick from Inglot

The 60's is one of my favourite eras for makeup inspiration, tell me about yours!

  2. You really look like a doll here, Sooo flattering!

  3. Stunning look, compliments your red hair beautifully!
    Thanks for getting back at me dear, I'm following you now too with GFC!


  4. i feel envy with your skill, how can you make clear eye make up, no messy.
    Give me tutorial with your own brush plis :(.
    i don't know which brush should i have :P.

    sorry if my english is bad XD

    1. It's just a looot of practice over the years, when I can get around to it I will try to make a picture tutorial! You should find some good beauty guru's on youtube, they usually have great advice about which brushes to use for what. xx

  5. Looks gorgeous! The only NYX blush I have is Terra Cotta but I really want to try Pinky too! I love these colours on you, especially the lip combination! I love '60s makeup but I think my favorite era for makeup would definitely be 40's glam and 50's pinup style! xo

  6. The makeup really brings the colour of your hair <3 love it xo

  7. Love the eyes and loving your hair too

  8. You always manage to rock your winged liner! Your contouring looks so flawless btw!! (and did I mention that I wish I could dye my hair reddish brown and still look good? *sigh*) - I really love the 1950s' (retro pinup girls!) and the 1970s' because the rock scene started getting super prominent in the 70s' and those lovely rocker women (go Ann and Nancy Wilson!!) are such inspirations to me in both their songwriting and their beauty philosophies :D xx

    1. Thanks girlie, I'm sure you would look good with any hair colour! Ah yes they would definitely be era's that would be suitable for you, thanks for the feedback!! xx
