I love the look of old Hollywood glam. I mean, who doesn’t! The porcelain skin, the red lips; I love it all! I love it even more that it’s surprisingly easy to achieve! Here are Savy’s top 3 tips on how to get a super easy throwback look:
1.) It’s all about even, matte skin. When I’m going for a vintage Hollywood look, I like to take it easy on all the contouring and highlighting that I usually do. I also use a matte face powder to set my foundation with. Rimmel Stay Matte is a great one from the drugstore. It’s actually pretty hard to find a good matte powder from anywhere, let alone the drugstore and this one is pretty darn good. And I don’t like matte powders.
2.) Keep the eyes simple. Go for classic colors. On this particular day I used my Revlon Smokey Shadow Stick in Atomic. One side is golden and the other a dark, gunmetal with what looks to be a hint of forest green. That’s all I used. Wham, bam, thank you Gorgeous! For an even more toned down look, use a neutral matte color over the lid and then define the crease with a taupe. Insta classic.
3.) R.E.D. Lips! I think that MAC Red (that’s really the name) is the perfect old Hollywood red. It’s got a nice satin finish and wears like a gem.
**Usually I’d rock a winged liquid liner with this look but I was feeling lazy so I just tightlined my eyes with a black pencil. I like the way it turned out all the same…and I especially liked not having to fuss over getting the perfect wing!**
Hope these tips help you to achieve that perfect throwback glam look! Now go be fierce!
