From New York to London, and now Madrid, Fashion Week has brought with it an abundance of style and beauty inspiration. One look we especially loved came from the Desigual show as part of Madrid Fashion Week on September 11, 2014.
Desigual's models strutted down the runway sporting retro hairstyles accessorized with colorful headscarves that, when paired with a classic cat eye and bold red lip, created the ultimate pin-up girl beauty look. Not only a timeless classic, this look is also a favorite of celebrities such as Katy Perry, P!nk, Gwen Stefani, and Dita Von Teese.
This particular look is fantastic because, even though it's a vintage-inspired look, it's kept current by leaving the brows undefined and the skin natural. So, want to recreate this look at home? Here's how...
Get the look
Start by applying a sheer base of foundation to your skin with a flat foundation brush. Blend well to get the product as sheer and natural as possible! Pin point conceal any problem areas, then fix your base with a setting powder.
Brush through your brows, brushing upwards from the inner corners and then to the side once you reach the arch.
Apply a primer to your eyelids, followed by a nude matte eyeshadow. Use a black liquid or gel liner to line the upper lash line and create a cat eye. Thicken your lashes with a few coats of mascara, allowing the product to dry in between coats for the best effect.
Line your lips with a red lip liner pencil before applying a shiny red lipstick. Don't forget to pout and reapply to help your pout stay perfect all day long!
