50s makeup look


50s makeup



50’s makeup is probably the most iconic look there is and it’s very easy to create. A simple 50’s makeup consists of a flawless matte base, red lips, quite sharp and arched eyebrows, black eyeliner and big, curly hair.

This look is still popular and – in my opinion – suits almost everyone. You just can’t go wrong with a classic look like this! These photos are from my school assignment, when I had to create a 50’s makeup look. My sister was my model and I think she looks gorgeous in this iconic look.
