This makeup mood is about harnessing the delicacy of the 1940s makeup style. Fresh, clean and defined using thin strokes of black eyeliner to give the illusion of fuller lashes with simplified skin to show of the iridescence of the clear like shimmery eyeshadow, pulled together with light brows and a statement brown-nude lip.
The cohesive, monochromatic theme in this look is not only perfect for for the autumn months but is suitable for any time of the year as this can be a great starting canvas for reds, pinks, orange hues etc.
I kept the brows lightweight and feathery whilst leaving the eyes faintly shaped with a dark brown eyeshadow applied higher than usual on the natural fold of my eyelids.
I think this lipstick is a true brown, therefore it carries little to no dimension at all, requiring a darker lip liner to actually give opaqueness on the lips. Other than that, this can be a lovely essential in anyone’s makeup kit who loves to substitute lipsticks for blusher, eyeshadow or even eyeliner/eye bases.
