This is how to do makeup for the Elizabethan Era. The Elizabethan Era is know for that white skin, that really like powdery looking face, red lip and like a nice line and lashes. So in order to get this look, it's pretty simple. You're just going to obviously make sure you have white flawless skin, kind of powdery looking. And they also have like a little bit of blush here, they have like that little rosy cheek and then you're going to have red lips and a nice like and some defined lashes. Once you put your foundation on, which could be cream foundation, foundation stick or air brush foundation, I would just use a little bit of baby powder and for a white, white powder, whatever you have. And then go all over your face and really make that powdery look. So, you want to make sure your face is really really white and has some powder on it. Next you want to make sure that your brows are properly groomed and then you're going to fill them in a little bit with a brow powder. You want to have nicely defined brows. But the trick to making them look really natural is once you put in your liner or your brow powder, and you've filled it in, you want to go back through and brush it that is going to make everything lay and be blended. As you can see, it looks flawless. Next you want to do just like a really light eyeshadow. So, just pick something matte and light and go all over your eye. The next thing you want to do is you want to do a nice black liner. I'm going to do it with a gel, because for me using the brush is just a little bit easier to control. But other people may want to use a liquid or a liquid pen. So, whatever works for you. Now I have the liner on, I have lashes on, my face is done, my brows done. So the last two things are you're going to want to do just a little bit of a pink cheek. So, for those of you that have dark circles like myself, make sure that you get rid of those too. So, I'm just going to go ahead and put a little concealer under here just to make sure that I've disguised and camouflaged my bad area. A nice little trick to is if you find that your concealer's a little dry, you could just use a little cream, tap a little cream on your finger, and just it through and blend it. And then it creates a little bit of a creamier foundation stick or concealer stick, whatever you're using. The last thing that you want to do is you want to put that red lip line. Now you're going to put a lip liner on first because I like to do a lip liner when I'm wearing a red lip. Because does stop it from bleeding. And then you're going to put your red lip on. Now, I'm going to put on just a little bit of red lipstick and really blend it nice. This is how to apply Elizabethan Era makeup. To learn more about me, visit me at
