Vintage Inspired Hair and Makeup

I’ve had a lot people request this hairstyle calling it a number of different things like vintage waves, finger waves, vintages curls, retro hair…..all I know is I love it. I feel like this look is always in style and is so girly and glamorous. vintage_makeup_webvintage_hair_makeup_webvintage_makeup_vintage_hair_vivianmakeupartist_webvintage_vivianmakeupartist_makeup_hair_web
Here are the details for this look:Before_after_vintage_sydney_squareComplexion: Temptu AirbrushCle de Peau ConcealerContour by Maskcara in Shadow, Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy, Illuminator is a custom mix (sorry that’s kind of annoying but just bein honest 😎  but it looks similar to Benefit High Beam)

Eyes: Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow PrimerMAC Eyeshadows in Vanilla (light color) Omega (medium color) and Brun (deepest color.) Liner on top is MAC Creme Liner using the MAC Precise Eyeliner 210 brush Lancome Khol eyeliner in Blanc on inner lower rim. Hypnose Mascara, and House of Lashes in Siren. For brows, I used Omega and the Anastasia angled brow brush  and Brow Gel.

Lips: Lancome Rouge in Love lipstick in 181 Rouge Saint Honore, Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Lip Stain in Gio

Hair: I used the GHD Curve Classic 1 inch curling iron (this curling iron is good but pricey. For a budget-friendly curling iron I also really like the Hot Tools 1 inch curling iron.)  For products, I used Oribe Dry at the roots before backcombing and set with Oribe Superfine Hairspray.

    I do love this look and secretly have tried to do this but haven’t fully achieve what I was going for so I chickened out before wearing it in public. I’ll have to give it another try now. Beautiful job!
