Fall/Winter Trend 2011- VAMP Lips! Retro Inspired

Nope, not vampire, vamp, meaning sexy and bold! When I think vamp, I think of the gorgeous ladies of the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. These ladies rocked the vamp lip.


In every piece of art there is one focal point. A focal point is the first thing your eyes go to when you stare at a painting, drawing, or face. Having more than one focal point or bold color at a time is just physically unappealing to the eyes, so we have either dramatic eye makeup w/ neutral lips, or neutral eye makeup w/ dramatic lips to choose from. Get it wrong and you just might end up like this:

I'm thrilled that the retro look is making it's comeback. I love how simple yet elegant this makeup is.

Arched brows, winged eyeliner, red lips- ANYONE could pull off it off with the right choice of colors that look great with your skintone.

 Here is everything I used for my retro inspired look--

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation (Ivory)
mixed with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation (Ivory)
Amazing Cosmetics Under Eye Concealer (Ivory)
NYX Powder Blush (Natural)

Urban Decay Naked Palette (Naked, Virgin)
Coastal Scents Gel Liner (True Black)
ELF Cream Eyeliner (Coffee)
Loreal Voluminous Mascara (Carbon Black)
Palladio Herbal Eyeshadow Primer

NYX Slim Lip Pencil (Deep Red)
NYX Round Lipstick (Snow White)

1. Apply concealer and foundation, prime the eyelids.
2. You want to pick 2 or 3 eyeshadows: One that matches your skin color for the lid, a warm or cool neutral (depending on your undertone), and a brow highlighter is optional. A little shimmer won't hurt.
3. Take the eyeshadow that's closest to your skin color and apply that all over the lid.
4. With a crease brush or blending brush, apply your neutral eyeshadow to the crease. You can take this color into the outer V but it's optional. My eyes are small and hooded so it looks better with out it.. I usually try to keep the crease a matte shade. Blend it up with a blending brush to give it that natural shadow, sultry effect.

5. You can use the lid color on your brow bone, or a more intense shimmery highlight. Apply w/ a blending brush.
6. If your lower lids are quite red like mine, you can use your crease color along the lower lash line to cover the redness.
7. Line your upper lids with a black liner. Winged eyeliner is easiest to apply with a liquid, cream, or gel formulation. Pencil is a pain in the butt. Your line should be thinnest starting at the inner corners or mid way. It should gradually get thicker as you reach the outer corner. If you're having trouble aligning the wings, draw a line from the outer corner of the eye in the direction of the end of your brow, this will guide your wings in the right direction.

8. You can apply false lashes or apply mascara to bottom and top lashes.

9. Choosing the right reds can be difficult. It has more to do with intensity than it does tone. Just remember that the paler you are, the more intense your red will be. So apply your lip liner, and your lipstick on top. With bold colors, I always feel the need to reshape the lips so they are even but this is optional. Remember that when your lipstick fades off your lips, it still stains the skin above the lips, so try not go out too far from the natural lip line.

10. If your lipstick is blue toned, apply a cool toned blush. If your lipstick is orange toned, apply a warm toned blush. Use a light hand while applying to the apples of the cheeks.

11. Lips and eyebrows are VERY important with this look. Fill your brows in with a matte powder, brow mousse, or eyeliner and shape them well. You want them high and arched to frame your sexy, sultry eyes. The brows make this look unique so they need to be defined, pointed and angular instead of rounded.
