Who doesn’t love a retro bleached blonde? Despite the blonde exposed to chlorine hair color, I love Mylène’s look. It’s that lovely late 50’s nice but still a fox look. It’s a classic look that will go with a variety of hair color/eye color combos.

FACE: Like most babes, the complexion is perfect. Apply concealer where needed. Clinique All About Eyes Concealer is great for the under eye area.  Apply a nice foundation like MAC Studio Fix Fluid in your shade. Apply a light dusting of a translucent powder like Clarins Loose Powder to absorb shine and to make foundation stay on longer. Cheeks have a soft pink glow. Apply a soft pink cream blush to the apples of cheeks for a natural glowing look. I love the shade of Clarins Multi-Blush Cream in Raspberry. It looks very natural and it is easy to blend.

EYES: Fill in brows with a brow powder if necessary. Estee Lauder Brow Perfecting Duo is nice because it has a powder and a wax to keep brows in place. Apply a soft matte shadow from lash line to brows. Revlon Matte Eye Shadow in Vintage Lace is a great color to even out the lids. Line the top lash line with a black gel liner. Make sure to wing out for a retro cat eye look. Do not apply liner to bottom lash line. Apply false lashes or a few coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes.

LIPS: Lips are such a soft petal pink. Lipstick Queen Lip Liner in Pink lacks “harshness”. Apply a soft milky mauve lipstick like Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor in Love It. Top with a delicate pink lip gloss such as Covergirl Wetslicks Amazemint Lip Gloss in Pink Positive.

The strings of babes associated with Mr. Martin Denny won’t stop! Who are these lovely ladies? I’ve wanted to know for years. Anyways, now to capture the very modern look of the 1957 album Exotica II. By the way, what dumb artist decided to frame this picture like this. Why chop off her chin and leave all that extra space? Oh and I love her hair. Every time I see this album I get closer to chopping mine off. First, even out your skintone using a matte foundation such as Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation. Apply it with fingertips and buff with a buffer brush (a brush with a blunt bristles). Dab concealer such as Too Faced Absolutely Flawless Herbal Concealer where needed. Finish with a light dusting of Rimmel Stay Matte pressed Powder. I prefer to use a large fluffy brush with the pressed powders, but if you want to be really matte use the puff. This chick digs the thick brows look. Fill in your brows thickly with Bourjois Sourcil Precision Eyebrow Pencil and then brush brows the comb that is attached. Set with a clear mascara or brow gel like Tweezerman Brow Mousse. Dust a nude, matte eyeshadow like the lightest shades from the Physician’s Formula Matte Collection Eyeshadow Quad in Canyon Classics. Blend the darker, plummy brown into the crease with a heavy hand. Line eyes with L’Oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner in Black Mica. This is a great product that is identical to Lancome’s Artliner. Wing the liquid liner out for a cat eyed effect. Line the lower lashline with the dark shade included in Canyon Classics Eyeshadow Quad, smudge with the sponge tip applicator included for a “smoky” look, slightly connecting to “cat eye” liquid liner on the top lashes. False eyeslashes anyone? Apply Andrea Mod Strip and adjust and trim as needed. Coat with tons of Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara in Black. Apply foundation or concealer over lips as a base. Line lips with Lancome Le Lipstique in Bronzelle. This is the best lipliner ever. Coat lips with the new Nars Lipstick shade in Mindgame a sheer warm – on the coral side- brown. Lightly dust Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Blush in Poppy, a peach brown. Curl hair so it is all flirty looking and you’ll be all ready to drink kamikazis and chill with the “exciting sounds of Martin Denny”.


Thanks to the tipster below I now know who this lovely lady is.
