Another Thursday, another Makeup Mixup! Thanks to Jaelan
for hosting! This week's prompt was "blushed". My thoughts immediately jumped to the 1980's where neon pink blush applied like a contour was all the rage. I let the idea "boil" overnight and when I woke up the result was completely different. What about something vintage?
I thought to myself as I looked on at the beautifully antique packaging of my Bésame French Vanilla Brightening Powder.
I did a little research to see what typical 1920's-1940's makeup looked like. A few articles later and I was set on a vintage theme. I did modernize the techniques a little, choosing a smoked out wing liner over the traditional 1920's smokey eye. I used a toned-down mauve blush to reflect the 1940's, but applied it in the circular manner of the 1920's. I concealed the corners of my lips and lined them to appear smaller for that flapper effect, but chose a blue-toned red over a bright coral to appeal to my 1940's theme. My hair is up in loose pin curls reminiscent of the 1940's style while also resembling the combed out finger wave trend made popular by the flappers. Altogether we're left with a mash-up of my favorite style years!
