Create a look: 1950’s

In this installment with Gemma we are in the 50’s. The 1950’s is probably one of the most famous decades in terms of make up looks, some of the most iconic women come this decade and I think it probably is the most recreated look people go for. This is the decade that the winged eyeliner look we all try to perfect became popular. 1954 saw Avon coin the now famous “Ding Dong Avon Calling” phrase and mask like foundation and powder was worn on a daily basis.

For my look I decided to go with quite a heavy base and to stick with the eyeliner along with some red lips. Pretty much a classic 1950’s look but my take on it.
Also apologies on the lighting changing in my pictures…..I blame well Autumn for it! 😀


Here is what I used for this look.
GOSH Classic velvet touch primer
Illamasqua cream pigment in Emerge
Revlon colorstay foundation in Sand Beige
Revlon colorstay concealer in 02 fair/light
Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in translucent
GOSH multi colour blush in 02 pixie pink
I heart make up eye primer
W7 in the buff palette – shades 3 + 5
Essence eyeliner pen in black
Elf brow kit in Dark
Estee Lauder Sumptuous extreme mascara in black
Chella Ivory lace high lighter
MUA intense colour lip liner in Red Drama
I heart make up lipstick in Total Diva

I really love this months look and its something I will wear again for sure.
