Retro Makeup Look: Winged Liner, Classic Red Lips

Retro Makeup Look: Winged Liner, Classic Red Lips

Cali requested for a Retro makeup look. Here is my take. I have done a classic pin up look – winged eye liner and red lips. Hope you like it. 🙂


Start by priming your eye lids.

Apply peach eye shadow all over your eye lid up til your brow bone. I am using all matte eye shadows for this look.

Now take a medium brown eye sahdow

And apply it all over your crease. This is just to give dimension to your eye.

Now take a darker brown eye shadow and apply it on the outer corner of your crease.

Blend it.

Now the liquid liner. We are trying to create a winged liner. Depending on your liking, you can thicken the line or create a longer wing. I would be keeping a short wing and thin line.

Start from the center of your upper lash line. It’s okay if you mess up a little, you can always go over the liner or cleanup with a Q tip dipped in makeup remover. Reapply the eye shadow wherever necessary.

Move towards the inner corner. Keep the liner thing towards inside.

On the outer corner just push the liner upward with a brush and the create a little triangle , as shown in the pic. Fill in the triangle with the black liquid liner. You can create a longer wing as well. 🙂

Apply kajal.

Now for the Classic Red  lips. 🙂

I am using a red lip liner from Bourjois. For some reason it has a weird smell. Sucks! 🙁

Anyway, mark your cupid bow’s and the center of the bottom lip first. Then trace the red lip liner around your lips.

Fill your lips with the red lip liner. This would prevent any smudging or smearing of  lipstick.

Now take your red lipstick. I am using a  cherry red lipstick.

and apply it on your lips.

That’s it. Your retro makeup look is done.:) You may wear pearl necklace with this look. Also tease the crown of your hair a bit to create that retro hair do. I didn’t have a hair spray so may hair were going flat. 🙁 You may also do a  side bun. You can accessories your bun with bows or shiny clips.

Here are the products I used : Coastal Scents 88 Palette , Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, MAC Studio Finish Concealer, MAC Heartless Lipstick ( Venomous Villains Collection),Bourjois Lip Pencil, Estee Lauder Maganscopic Mascara,  Lotus Kajal, MAC Painterly Paint Pot, Lakme Black Impact Liner.

        I used medium brown eye shade from beauties factory palette. L’oreal liner and l’oreal long stay lipstick in brick shade. My cousin had got it for me from U.S. I have seen around, its not available here. Looking to buy a new shade now. I have tried many, but not been able to find my red shade. I like yours, think I will try this one.

        P.S. Inglot has a 15% off sale. Guess will try out their shades as well. 😀

        IMBB is bringing out soo many emotions in me. Greed, love, excitement :heh: :hypnotized:

          It’s the last day for the Inglot sale today.

          he he Greed. lollll!!!

          1. Last day!! No worries, since m around, i will give it a shot today. I was thinking of buying their cream blush, but after your comparison, i think i will get a NYX one.

    1. Welcome to the world of RATIS TYPOS :P:P. We’re all used to it now :P. She means –

      ummmm….May be blowdry the lipstick…actually let me PUT this in today’s IMBB question.

      She meant, try blow drying the lipstick, it will warm up to be usable again. And she will put it up as a question on ‘ASK IMBB GANG’ today, right Rati?

      1. I can call myelf a true IMBB’ian today ! Because i can finally understand what Rati typed :D:D I’m soooo proud of me today :clap: :clap: :clap: 😀 😀

    1. Actually reds are of different colours. This is not super red, it is a cherry red shade so this kinda brings a little freshness on your face. That’s what I think. The last time I tried red (MAC Vivaglam red )my hubby was calling me phoolmati :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

      You described the complexion right.

      And do give it a try may be with a bright pink lipstick if not red. 🙂

    1. Thankies and you were making fun of my typos. :-X :-X I will make so many typos in my comments now that you’ll get all confoosed.. :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug:

  13. Hi Rati,

    Looking really nice in the pic 🙂
    Just wanna know where did you buy the Coastal Scents Palette from?
    Becoz I checked on their site and the shipping costs to Mumbai is more than the cost of the palette. And I really want an eyeshadow palette with lots of colour..

    Hope u help 🙂

      1. Thanks Rati for ur reply 🙂

        I’m actually confused about whether to buy the 88 piece makeup palette or the 88 ultra shimmer palette… Does the normal palette have any shimmery colours at all and if they do how many?
        I know I’m troubling u too much but I want to be sure before I order it 🙂
