The perfect look of the forties would not be complete without the make-up. What is characteristic is the precision it demands. It’s not the type of “face” you put on in the morning and not bother with.
With the arched brow, full red lips and matt finish, it underlines femininity and class.
♥ Brows- neat, defined, arched, quite thick. Use a soft brow pencil to mimic natural brow hair
♥ Eye Liner- a clear, visible line, rising up at the corner of the eye. It is complemented with a beige eye shadow
♥ False lashes- this is an important element that was added when the Burlesque, vintage look became popular
♥ Red lips- whether or not you like lip liner, a rich beautiful lip becomes the focal part of the face. The lips are full, with a heart effect on the upper lip
♥ Matt finish- the tanned look is so modern, as is shimmer and shine. The 40s skin was matt, light, with rouge on your cheeks. Needless to say make sure you apply the powder using a swansdown puff
