How To Apply Rockabilly Make Up?

You have got the right clothing and jaw dropping hairstyle, now it's time to master true Rockabilly make up! It's all about looking bold – strong eye-liner, pale face, neutral colors and statement lips.

Start with a base: use a cream-based foundation that matches your natural skin color. Use a brush to apply foundation and blend it into the hairline, along the jaw line, and onto the neck to avoid a makeup line. A darker shade of foundation can be used as a bronzer; apply with a brush lightly where the sun would normally hit the skin - cheekbones, nose, forehead, and chin.

Classic cat eye

  • Start with a cream eye base (primer) to keep the shadows and liner in place. Apply light neutral eye shadow over the entire lid from your lash line to the brow bone.
  • Create thin line of black liquid eyeliner, getting thicker towards the outer corner and winging it out at the ends. A Q-tip can be used to correct any eyeliner mistakes and can also be used to blend the color into the corners of the eye.
  • Apply a mid-dark grey shimmery eye shadow to the outer corner of your eye. Buff the shadow into the crease, just above the liquid eyeliner.
  • Use black, waterproof mascara and apply 2-3 coats on the tops and bottoms of the lashes. Fill in your brows for a more defined look. Sweep neutral (peachy or pink colored) blush over cheek bones and slightly on the apples.
Pouty red lips
  • Use a lip liner that matches the lipstick you're using and only draw along the natural lip line. Use a lipstick with 8 or 12-hour wear. Try Revlon ColorStay Overtime liquid lip color in a shade like Ultimate Wine.

Finish off the lips with a high-gloss lip shine.
