Classic Holiday Vintage Makeup Tutorial

Classic Holiday Vintage Makeup Tutorial

This makeup tutorial uses vintage charm to create a classic, elegant and wearable makeup look.  The simple black cat eye liner and a light eye contour allows the red lip to POP.  I paired this look with a stunning emerald green blouse and round pearl and diamond earrings. 

Throw on a pair of dark skinny jeans, grab a pair of nude pumps, and you've got yourself a casual chic holiday look!

The Face

 Prime, Foundation and Conceal

1. I moisturize my face with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream and my under eye area with Clinique Moisture Surge.

2. I prime my skin with NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer and prime my under eye area with ELF Studio Hydrating Under Eye Primer.

3. Using a Beauty Blender, I apply a mix of Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in Soft Tan and Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation in Light 49 to my entire face.

4. To highlight and conceal I use the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Concealer in Light Warm in a V-shape beneath my eyes, in the middle of my forehead, down the bridge of my nose, on my chin, and on my eye lids. 

Highlight, Contour and Blush 

1. To set everything I take the Real Techniques Setting Brush and place a mixture of the highlight shades Lucid and Lyric from the Kat Von D Shade and Light Contour Palette and place a generous amount over the areas that I highlighted with concealer.

2. I also add a generous amount to my jaw directly below my contour line.  I allow the extra powder to sit on my skin for a few minutes to "bake" before brushing off with a Morphe Brushes G23 Soft Fan Brush.

2. With the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush I take the contour shade Sombre from the Kat Von D palette and contour beneath my cheekbones, underneath my jaw bone, along the hairline on my forehead, down my temples, and alone the parallel sides of the bridge of my nose.

4. After blending I apply the middle blush color from the Morphe Brushes 9B Blush Palette, a soft shimmer pink-peachusing the BH Cosmetics Blush Brush.

Highlight and Brows 

1. Using the same fan brush as earlier, I then apply the Jaclyn Hill and Becca Highlight in Champagne Pop to the tops of my cheekbones, my forehead just above my brows, and the bridge of my nose.

2. I highlight over this with the first highlight color from the Carli Bybel by BH Cosmetics Palette, a shimmery frosted pink.

3. I shape my brows with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ebony.

4. I fill it in with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown.

5. I set it into place with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel.

The Eyes 

Primer and Transition Shade

1. First, I prime my eyes with the Urban Decay 24 Hour Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden.

2. I take the shade Peach Smoothie by Makeup Geek, a soft matte peach beige, with a BH Cosmetics Fluffy Blending Brush into the crease of my eye and start blending upward.  This is going to be our transition shade.

3. Right below this I place a second transition shade, Frisk from the Naked2 Basics Palette, a warm matte grey. 

Crease and Lid 

1. I then apply the shade Cover from the Naked2 Basics Palette, a matte red brown, directly into my crease with a BH Cosmetics Small Tapered Blending Brush using windshield wiper motions.

2. I reapply this color a couple times to build the color, making sure it blends into my transition shade but stays directly within the crease.

3. Using a BH Cosmetics Flat Shadow Brush I take the shade Stark from the Naked2 Basics Palette, a matte nude pink, and take the color all across my lid and to my outer corner. 

Outer Corner and Wing 

1. I use the color Primal from the Naked2 Basics Palette, a deep matte brown, to define my outer corner.  I apply this directly to the outer third of my eye lid with a BH Cosmetics Tapered Blending Brush in the shape of a sideways "V" to smoke out the look.

2. While I make sure to concentrate the color only to this area, I take it up into my crease and down into my lower lash line ever so slightly so as to enhance the smokey effect.

3. I take a BH Cosmetics Small Angled Brush to draw on my eye liner using the NYX Gel Liner in JetBlack.  I get as close to the lash line as possible and press down on the lid to create a black line.

4. I wing this out when I reach the outer corner of my eye and continue it until I reach the end of where I have place the black eyeshadow. 

Highlight and Lower Lash Line 

1. I then use the shade Shimma Shimma by Makeup Geek, a metallic champagne, to highlight the inner tear duct with a BH Cosmetics Fluffy Blending Brush, and a small flat shadow brush to highlight my brow bone just below my eyebrow.

2. Finally, I take the shade Cover again and glide it below my bottom lash line using a small eye defining brush, making sure to blend into the outer corner of my eye to give the entire look a rounded out eye.

3. I go over the bottom half of Cover with our original transition shade, Frisk, to blend out any harshness. 

Mascara and Falsies 

1. I apply Benefit Cosmetics Rollerlash Mascara to my upper and lower lashes.

2. For my falsies I choose Ardell Curvy Black Lashes #410 and apply them using the Vegas Nay by Eylure Waterproof Lash Glue.

The Lips

For this look I wanted a festive and holiday inspired red lip.

1. I line my lips with the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella.

2. I fill in my lips with Rimmel London Matte Liquid Lipstick in BurningLava.

3. I set the entire look with the Mario Badescu Facial Setting Spray.
