MAC's Retro Glam Makeup Means You Won't Need A New LBD (Since Everyone Will Be Focused On Your Face)

I recently attended a MAC Cosmetics seminar, and I'm happy to report the retro diva look is in full swing (think Mad Men après five). Leading makeup artists instructed eager students in recreating the glamorous Hollywood look that Jayne Mansfield and others popularized – just in time for holiday festivities.

Begin by arching and filling in your brows, keeping them on the thinner side. A mechanical pencil ($14.50) gives the most precision for this detailed job. After priming your lids, apply an eye color that’s close to your skin tone, perhaps one shade lighter. Try Mineralize Eye Shadow in Word Of Mouth ($17.50), which you will also use to highlight under your brow bone. Shade in the crease using the copper that comes in the  trio and sweep that same copper under your bottom lashes in a neat line that you softly smoke out.

Boldly line your upper lashes in black – gel liners like Fluidline ($15) were made for this. Then top your lashes with a nice coat of black mascara, concentrating on the upper lashes but lightly touch the bottom lashes too. Although the lips are the last step in this process, the classic red lip color is the key to this look. A medium blue-red such as Red She Said ($14) will work for many skin tones.
