I do so love the vintage style of red lips and winged eyeliner, but the traditional white and grey eyeshadow that accompanies this look isn't for me, so instead I chose peachy golds, warm browns and even a plummy purple to make the whole thing more 'me'. It was also to bring some life back into my face, because a red colour on my lips often makes me look even more pale than I already am.
The matte red lipstick immediately gives a more mature and vintage effect, even though the red is a bit deeper on me than would be most flattering on me, I do absolutely adore it and I don't mind putting on a little bit of extra blusher to put some colour back into my skin.
Doing a bold winged eyeliner takes up a lot more eyelid space than my usual tightlining or fine lines, so as to not lose too much definition, I applied a plummy colour under the lower lashes to give the illusion of bigger, more open eyes. I also brought up the eyeshadow a little bit over the crease, to give myself a bit more room to work with.
I do really like this look, it makes me feel all fancy and it's so very feminine. It's hard to not feel like a vintage vixen with your make-up done like this!
