Classic Makeup Looks

Timeless make up focuses on the basics of beauty, it begins with even skin that appears clean, yet flawless. Cosmetic colors should remain neutral, highlighting your eyes and lips with understated tones.

Enhance your natural facial features and create symmetry to achieve a truly classic look that transcends time.

GET THE LOOK:

Classic Makeup Looks

Create the appearance of a smooth base with an over all even skin tone using naturally coordinating shades of Water Canvas Foundation (Creme-to-Powder) and Perfect Canvas Liquid Concealer. Our patented and award winning Water Canvas Foundation imparts a real-skin (neither too moist nor too matte) finish on the skin, and for superior coverage, nothing beats the long-wearing formula of our Perfect Canvas Liquid Concealer.

Classic Makeup Looks

Apply loose powder to areas naturally highlighted by your defined facial sculpture to soften and set foundation. The featherweight formula of Perfect Canvas Loose Face Powder provides brighter, pore-less looking skin, and a comfortable, silky smooth application that does not build-up or settle into fine lines.

Classic Makeup Looks

Use Trio Eyeshadow Pearl-to-Matte in a neutral shade like Primitive. Following the classic 1-2-3 application steps to color the lids, apply in the crease and define the lashline.

Classic Makeup Looks

Follow with Duo Eye Pencil in Brown/Fawn Silk. Line the waterline and inner lower lash line with Fawn Silk. Line the upper lash line, and lower outer lash line with the Brown. Use our Flat Eyeshadow Brush #33 to blend on the bottom lash line, where the two shades meet.

At the bottom lash line, top Fawn Silk with shade #1 in the Trio and top Brown with the #3 shade. Blend with short downward strokes using the #33 Flat Brush.

Classic Makeup Looks

Use Bi Brow Powder Pomade for full-brows or the Everbrow Micro Pencil for a thinner brow. You’ll want your arch to be even and to slightly extend at the outer edge in order to properly frame the face.

Classic Makeup Looks

Curl the outer corner of lashes with our Mini Lash Curler. Apply two coats of The Curl Mascara. A curved wand follows closely along the lash line to distribute mascara evenly and separate every lash. For added fullness, apply La Dolce Vita Lash Tips. Vincent’s La Dolce Vita are 1/3 the size of traditional false lashes, so they fit snuggly along the outer corner of your upper eyelid. These lashes offer an easier application than full strip lashes and are great for beginner faux lash wearers.

Classic Makeup Looks

Brighten cheeks with Water Canvas Blush in a shade that closely matches your natural flushed cheek. Use your fingertips to pat on, accenting the apples of the cheeks. The moist, refreshing formula of this blush is so light, it perfectly mimics the glow of healthy skin.

Gently highlight with the Water Canvas Highlighter in Mermaid Muse on the upper apple of the cheek and along the brow bone.

Classic Makeup Looks

Line and fill in your lips using a neutral shade Duo Lip Pencil like Rosewood. Top with Velvet Riche Lipstick in Ravish Sin. Our version of the classic 1950’s cream lipstick, the luxurious lotion-like formula of Velvet Riche caresses and contours lips with a full-color, soft luster finish. For a more natural glossy look, try Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Sophia Rose. This full-body, non-waxy formula layers light-catching pigment on lips while it moisturizes, leaving your lips feeling soft as silk.

BONUS TIP: If your features require a little more added dimension, contour the cheekbones with a Velour Pressed Powder that is two shades deeper than your natural skin tone.
