Inspired by: Old Hollywood Glam

For this week's makeup look, I wanted to do something inspired by old Hollywood glamour. 
I've been seeing a bunch of it pop up lately, and I figured I would play with the concept
and put my own Vanity and Vodka touch to it. :-)

I used a really fun MUA palette for this, so if you have this palette,
let me know what you think!


The shadows came from the beautiful MUA Dusk Till Dawn Palette.

For this look I did a gradient contoured eye. When I see photos of this look, it is beautifully matte in finish.  However- I combined both shimmer and matte shadows to complete the look.


EYES:

♥ UDPP
 ♥ Nyx Jumbo pencil in Yogurt to lid
♥ Ulta shadow in Naked from brow to crease
♥ MUA Shadow #4 (deep beige) to crease
♥ MUA Shadow #5 (shimmer mauve) to blend and diffuse crease color
up and out towards brow bone
♥ MUA Shadow #2 (deep silver) to outer v and crease to add contour
♥ MUA Shadow #1 (shimmer vanilla) to lid
♥ MUA Shadow #6 (shimmer steel blue) to lower lash line
BLUE?  Yes. Blue :-)
(I'm just having fun here, and I wanted a pop of color!)
♥ NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk to waterline
♥ MUA Shadow #3 (shimmer white) to set the water line
♥ Black eyeliner/ mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in #47's


BLUSH:

♥ Ulta Shadow in Afterglow

LIPS:

♥ Be A Bombshell gloss in Hot Mess
Usually this makeup style calls for a very matte red lip color.
I'm deciding to switch it up for the heck of it and go with a pigmented gloss :)


      I always love to play with makeup genres and their interpretations.  This is a really classic look that I added a little personal twist to.  I hope you've enjoyed it and maybe found a bit of inspiration :-)


Thank you so much for visiting! I truly love it when you do!
Have a beautiful day ♥
xoxo,
Colleen

  6. As always you make me wish I had your services available to me here. I love the fact that you have changed it up by adding a bit shimmer and gloss- I think both works perfectly for summer as well as nights out.
