Plus 4 steps to a light retro makeup look – perfect for spring!
Be it a pair of rhinestone earrings, or a head to toe look including pin curls and kitten heels – there’s something vintage happening on me everyday. I know I’m not alone. I’ve seen liberty rolls, cat eyes and red lips all over the NYFW runways.
But with spring just around the corner, us retro gals like to lighten up a bit. Because unless you’re Dita Von Teese, it can be a little much for an easy, breezy sort of day. Here’s how you (and I) can still rock a vintage makeup vibe.
4 simple steps for what I call vintage light, perfect for spring:
1. Ditch the black and reach for brown eye liner for that cat eye. All the impact without the harshness.
2. Full false lashes can be a bit too much drama sometimes. But individual lashes placed just at the outer ends will give you a light, flirty look.
3. A bright pink blush, concentrated on the apples of your cheeks, is perfect for a spring day and gives you a vintage kewpie doll look.
4. Lipstick can feel a bit heavy, so a sheer, shiny red gloss completes the look. And have I got a sweet one for you…
Literally sweet too! Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm smells like an updated version of the lip balms of my youth. The mango and shea butters not only add a sweet/tart scent, but moisturizing properties that make your lips feel amazing.
Add to that SPF 15, and the fabulous sheer red I found within the tube of the shade Anemone, and I’ve got a balm that hasn’t left my purse since its arrival (a hard handled 50s patent leather purse, of course).
Want to see so for yourself? You can pick up this shade and other Covergirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balms at the Glam.com Amazon Store.
