Step-by-step: Fifties glamour

Sultry eyes and statement red lips defined the 1950’s. Channel the beauty icons of the most glamorous decade with our step-by-step guide.

1

EYE SHADOW

Sweep a white shimmering eye shadow across your eyelids. Add definition at the crease with a darker eye shadow in beige or brown. Use a clean makeup brush to blend at the outer and inner corner of your eye.

EYELINER PENCIL

Define your eyes with a black eyeliner pencil, rimming your upper waterline and darkening the roots of your top lashes (a technique known as tightlining).

LIQUID EYELINER

Trace your upper lash line with black liquid eyeliner. Create a small wing at the outer corner; looking straight ahead makes it easier to create a flawless flick. Now, add mascara.

POUT

To create a starlet-worthy red pout, use a dark red lip pencil to line your lips. Finish, with a deep red coloured lipstick.
