Prom Makeup: Old-Fashioned Glam

For any formal event, there are always a few people channeling the spirit of old Hollywood, and for good reason. When you want glamour and drama, you can’t go wrong with old-timey style. To really pull off authentic vintage makeup, however, it’s important to realize that it’s more than bold lips and eyeliner. For this look, I focused on retro matte eyeshadows and a rounded, 1930s smoky eye. To finish it off with some drama, I can’t resist a dark vampy lip!
