How to Do Burlesque Makeup
Evoke a sexy, retro era by way of cat-like eye makeup, brick red lips and undulating waves. Use a lip liner to create a rounded or pointed cupid's bow (add definition by drawing just outside the lines with a flesh-toned concealer pencil).
Bear in mind that the burlesque star's skin has a paler, more powdery finish than the average gal and a faux mole drawn under the eye lends a sexy touch. A heavier foundation will help you achieve this look and you can forgo bronzer for a pressed translucent powder.
Select a snow-white or gold shadow for the lid, and rim the top and bottom lashes with black liquid liner, extended a few millimeters beyond the outer corners. Add dimension with a dark shadow applied in the crease and blend well with a contouring eye shadow brush. A brow pencil a few shades darker than your natural hair will make your arches appear more defined. Brow stencils can be used to help you create symmetry. Oh, and those lashes? Rock falsies galore.
