Vintage 1940s/1950s Makeup Tutorials

Last month I posted a couple of my favourite vintage hair tutorials, and today I thought I'd do a matching makeup post.
I love vintage makeup, mostly because it really feels as though it's worth the effort it takes to put on. I have no time for "no-makeup" makeup — it takes for-bloody-ever to apply, yet leaves you looking as though you aren't wearing any at all. Where's the fun in that?

This is my kind of tutorial; a very retro, pin-up style look:

While this one goes for a different style; Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's:

Finally, Beauty Couch has a great round-up of links for vintage makeup inspiration here.

Have fun, and good luck!
