Mary Greenwell's Masterclass: The Fabulous Fifties

December 29th 2015 / 1 comment

Mary Greenwell shows us how to recreate the fabulous fifties with our make-up while adding a modern twist

Immaculately groomed, defined and uber-polished, nothing beats 1950s hair and make-up for pure, ladylike elegance.

Here, in the second of our iconic look videos, make-up legend Mary Greenwell shows us how to recreate 1950s sophistication but with a modern 2013 twist using Chanel make-up.

The key to the look is to create fresh, super-luminous skin (instead of the thick pan-stick foundations women would have worn in the fifties), which adds a modern lightness and youthfulness that would not have been possible with make-up textures back in the mid 20th century. Mary also uses slightly unconventional eye shades and layers two red lipsticks to give the look an edge.

Eclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen in 20 Beige Clair , £27.00
