Hi cutie pies!
I entered the current weekly challenge on makeupgeek.com where you are supposed to create a makeup look inspired by the makeup Reese Witherspoon wears in "Water for Elephants". Since I love these contests (it doesn't matter if you win, it's just so fun to participate =)) I spent a lot of time doing research of the movie and the makeup. The movie takes place in 1931 so I looked into the kind of makeup they wore back then. One of the characteristics of the 1920's and 1930's makeup was that the eyeshadow was taken high up towards the brow and lower on the outer corner, creating a sleepy looking eyelid.
Reese´s character in the movie, Marlena, wears quite a typical early 1930's makeup with a dark, contoured sleepy looking eyelid and thin, quite rounded eyebrows. Red lipstick also seems to be one of her characteristics.
Anyway, here's the look that I came up with =)
*Clarins Everlasting foundation "Ivory"
*Touche Éclat 01 (under eyes)
*MAC studio Finish Concealer NW15 (I put this through my brows as well to lighten them up a little bit)
*Make Up Store Microshadow "Pollution"
*Make Up Store Eyedust "Bamboo"
*Isadora Inliner "Indian Black"
*Clinique High Impact Mascara
*Ardell lashes #110
*Revlon ColorStay Lipliner "Wine"
*Oriflame Giordani Gold Lipstick (Don't know the name or number because it's an unmarked sample)
