Trends in makeup come and go, but lately, we’ve been seeing vintage makeup making an awesome comeback! And why not? The 60s and 70s were the decades of glamour, after all, when the most iconic beauty looks were created – the winged eyeliner, the red lips, and the thick false lashes. We found some amazing vintage makeup looks you can copy right now to take your look back in time.
Old Hollywood Glam
We’re loving the resurgence of vintage glamour, and Old Hollywood is our favorite era to recreate. The key to getting that classic look is all in the details. First, start with a flawless base. Next, add some contouring to define your cheekbones. Then, fill in your brows for a polished look. Finally, add a pop of color with a bold red lip.

The 50’s Red Lips
Red lips are classic, and there’s a reason they’ve been around for so long. They’re sexy, timeless, and flattering on just about everyone. If you’re thinking of rocking a red lip, here’s how to do it like a 1950s pinup girl.

60’s Graphic Liner
Create the Look
Graphic eyeliner was iconic in the 60s, and it’s been making a comeback lately. To achieve this look, start by lining your upper lash line with a black liquid liner. Then, extend the liner outwards to create a wing. Next, use your eyeliner to create a perfect cut crease above the crease of your lid.

The ’70s were all about sunkissed, dewy skin- and we’re here for it. To get the look, start by prepping your skin with Motives Skintelligence pH Skin Normalizer Then, apply a light foundation with Lumière de Vie Pore Minimizing Serum all over the face, focusing on evening out the skin tone.

80’s Bushy Brows
Bushy, overgrown brows were all the rage in the 1960s and are back on the map this year as well. To get the look, start by filling in your brows with Motives Arch Definer Ultra-Fine Brow Pencil that’s one shade darker than your natural hair color. Then, use a spoolie brush to comb the product through your brows, fluffing them up as you go. Next, use a clear gel to hold the shape in place. Finally, fill in any sparse areas with individual hairs using Motives Essential Brow Kit
