Classic pin-up makeup

A crisp matte red lip and a sultry yet simple eye creates an old Hollywood, timeless glamour. This is a change from my go to smokey eye but the red lip is a classic and a look I plan to wear more in fall and winter.

For the matte smokey eye I used the Urban Decay naked basics palette. I swept W.O.S over the lid and blended a mixture of Naked 2 and Faint into the socket. I then deepened the outer corner with Crave, the matte black shade and applied Ardell demi wispies to give glamorous fluttery lashes.
I applied a little Revlon grow luscious mascara to the bottom lashes but I wanted the eye to remain relatively top heavy to give more of a sultry feel.
To create a bold matte red lip I first outlined and shaped my lips with Sleeks eau la liner in the shade Moulin rouge 307. I then filled in the lip with a mixture of MAC charmed I'm sure from the Marilyn Monroe collection and Russian red lipstick.
