Makeup: All Starts With an Image
Think back to the beginning of the 20th century, when black and white films were becoming popular and there was a need for makeup artists ...
You start with a large area on the eye lid. Use black boldly; you only have to choose the right brush and dip it in the right amount of color. Then quickly add some bright red eye shadow, starting from 1/3 of the way up, and blend upwards.
For the bottom eye liner, find a softer pencil to define the eyes. For the lips, start from the center and blend 360 degrees outwards. Notice that the lines on our lips have certain direction. Work towards the lines and then against it. At the time not much were done to retouch the eyebrows, so we leave the original contours.
This was what was popular back then.
Makeup is like drawing; there’s no perfect way to do it. It’s like a game, so don’t over think it and lose the fun in it all.
1950's Make up
Marilyn Monroe was the icon of the era. Her makeup style was what was trending. Arched eyebrows, sexy lips and winged eyeliner was very popular.
To begin, you need to have an idea of what kind of shape and curve you want your eyeliner to have. Start at the end of your eyes and draw forward, then fill it in from front to back and connect the lines. Open your eyes and see if it’s what you want. For the lips, find a lipliner that you are comfortable using, and for the upper lips draw an “M” starting from your outer lip. For the bottom lip start from the outer corners moving in as well.
Tip: Always make sure you get as much color on your brush as possible. This will give you the bold and full color that you want on your lips.
