“I Am My Own Walking Portfolio” Day 2 of 4: 50’s Vintage Inspired


We’re on Day 2 of 4! Today’s look is basically 50’s inspired. I bought ribbon headpieces last Sunday and I can’t express how much I love wearing them! Today, however, it didn’t feel quite right to wear it to school! So after taking this shot, I actually removed the ribbon headpiece—let’s save it for a gorgeous 50’s OOTD.

Here is a shot I took the night before (still wearing my Day 1 hair and makeup):IMG_2056To achieve my hair and makeup for Day 2 of 4, here’s what to do:

HAIR: towel dry, air dry, comb through, wear the ribbon headpiece (available at SM Dept. Store for PHP 99.75)

MAKEUP: I went for a sparkling white and smoked out eye look.

  1. Moisturize! I used Neutrogena’s Hydroboost Water Gel.
  2. Do your foundation, concealing, and brow work (I used the same procedures and products for this part from Day 1)
  3. MAC Shroom E/S (or any white E/S) all over the lids up to the brow bone and the inner thirds of the lower lashline
  4. MAC Beauty Marked E/S (any black or gray E/S will do) on the outer V—remember to sweep outward to create that smoky look, keep the center lid clean!
  5. Pat on a sparkling white E/S (I used Shawill’s E/S #5) on the center of the lids. Pat on the inner thirds of the lower lashline as well.
  6. Line your eyes, curl your lashes and apply mascara (same procedure from yesterday)
  7. Contour face. I used FS Two Way Cake in Orleans.
  8. Blush. The Body Shop Roseflower Blush in 02.
  9. Lip balm. EOS Summer Fruit.
  10. Lip color. I used Ever Bilena’s Matte Lipstick in Scarlet. (reddish-orange shade)

I know some of you won’t like the ribbon headpiece that much. But after reading this, you might reconsider.

See you tomorrow for Day 3!
