Old Hollywood Makeup

Old hollywood makeup is glamour personified. This makeup trend is all about defined brows, flawless skin, bold red lips and flirty eyes. Silver screen sirens like Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly made this look iconic, even to this day. The focus should be your lips. Bold red lips are seductive and intriguing. Try using a nude lip pencil to outline your lips (using a nude pencil will give you the advantage to make your lips appear fuller), then fill in your lips with cherry red lipstick. Perfect for any woman that wants to brighten up their smile. Adding definition to your brows will accentuate your features and keep a groomed appearance. Keep your eye makeup simple, but sexy. Create a feline look with liquid liner on the top lid. Avoid dark liner on the lower lid. Lashes must be full and heavy. I recommend bold red lips for daytime, but keep the glamour toned down. However, this look is perfect for evening. Here are some pictures that you can use to re-create this look at home. Good luck!
