Makeup tutorials 50s

The fifties were the years of pin up, of Grease, divas like Marilyn, Elisabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot, Liz Taylor. These were the years that led to the Rock and Roll Elvis Presley.

The woman is shapely and seductive but belongs also a reassuring image and innocent at the same time, like fashion and make uo era recount.

In this trick we have a base which must be of the same color of our embodied, not as clear as we find for example in make up 20s. So after covering imperfections and Dark circles with a corrector suitable, we fix everything with the powder.

All eye shadows that were used in the 50's are opaque, contrary to what you think. So we begin drawing a light eye shadow cream on the whole eyelid and we proceed stepping away with a matte brown eyeshadow in the crease, forming a crescent. Sfumiamo good eye shadow, bringing it outward to stretch the eye and creating a kind of "v" at the end of the eye. Try to go up while the blended product, otherwise with a gradient that goes down the eye will be sagging and tired, and this is definitely not the result we want to achieve. With the same brown go at the bottom of the eye blending the product and use a flesh-colored pencil in the internal rhyme.

With a black eyeliner draw a line that must not be thick, but thin enough and the carry as much as possible towards the outside thus lengthening the eye and ending with a small upturned comma. As a finishing touch we take a white eye shadow matt and let's create light points under the eyebrow, blending well with the brown eye shadow with which we created the crescent on the eyelid. A touch of light even in the inside of the eye, near the nose, going to fade the white eye shadow with cream that I put on the eyelid. We finish the eyes with much mascara.

Full eyebrows and red lips

Very important in the fifties are the eyebrows, which become quite thick, perfectly delineated and see gull-wing, a form that still stand today.

Finally we arrive at lips that in this make-up are the masters with a nice Red lipstick very heated and intense that it goes to draw a sweet, rounded line. We begin by using a red pencil to outline the mouth and we go to fill the entire surface so as to create a base for lipstick to make it last longer. A long lasting lipstick is ideal.

As a finishing touch we use a veil of blush on the cheeks.
