A new segment I’m trying out where in I show my morning make up routine for various days and chat about what I’m doing that day. Not really a tutorial, more of a random girly chat while we get ready together in the bathroom 😉
Today’s style features classic red lips with nice dark winged eyeliner. I used to wear this style a lot when we went to Rockabilly gigs, it was a really fun time. I love classic red lips and I’d like to start wearing them more! .

Vintage Style Red Lips and Black Liner – Morning Make Up Instructions
And welcome to another edition of Morning Make Up where I do my make up and we chat.
Today’s look is a little bit vintage.
Starting with foundation first as usual.
Next a generous coating of mascara.
When James and I used to go to a lot of Rockabilly gigs I did my make up like this a lot.
It was pretty much my go to look.
Coat the whole lid all the way up to the brow with white shimmer shadow.
It’s quite simple to do as long as you have the hang of liquid liner and lip liner.
A lot of people are scared of red lipstick but once you know how to handle it, it’s not that scary.
Take a shimmery dark brown shadow and draw on a wing. Continue the line around the eye so it forms a pointed “C” shape over the top of the eye.
Just draw the line, don’t fill it in.
This line creates depth and the higher you put it, the deeper your eyes will look.
Just make sure both sides match.
Take a fluffing brush and lightly blend it all.
Don’t blend too much because you don’t want to completely blur the line.
I miss going to see Rockabilly bands, we used to dance all the time!
Draw a thick line of liquid liner and wing it out.
I find liquid liner easiest to use when it’s got a felt tip.
Rather than drawing it on you can just dot it in place until it forms a line.
The line should start thin in the inner corner and get thicker at the outside.
The felt tip is useful for making a perfect wing too because you can just press it in place to make the flick.
Then just fill in any gaps.
Easy done and much easier than trying to control a proper brush.
Make sure to lean on something solid like a table so your hand isn’t wobbly!
If you need to, you can also pull the eyelid skin tight while you do this to keep it steady.
Add some feathery false lashes.
My favorite part of going to rockabilly gigs was watching the older couples dance, so cute!
Line your lips with a bright red lip liner.
I always start in the middle top and bottom and work my way out to the edge.
Rather than big lines, use small feathery strokes and go slowly.
We used to go dancing almost every weekend. Rockabilly gigs are great for dancing because everyone is so friendly!
A lot of the people who attended in our area had been listening to the music since they were kids too.
Fill in the lips with liner.
This is much easier than doing the edges.
I think most of the bands we used to see are broken up now, so sad.
The best top I have for lips is to smile while you apply liner.
You can see the finished shape as you go and it’s easier to draw with the lips pulled tight like this.
Apply a thin coat of red lipstick.
The lip liner base will make the lipstick last much longer.
Add a tiny bit of blush.
This is definitely a look you need to wear out dancing!
I love shiny lips so I added a little lip gloss too.
Matte red lips are very beautiful with this style though.
A look like this isn’t completely without the matching hair.

Definitely goes with it a little better than my bathrobe does.
I hope this was a useful video. Please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and tutorials.
Thanks so much for watching!
