INSPIRED BY THE SCREEN SIRENS OF YESTERDAY, THIS SEASON’S HOTTEST MAKEUP TREND IS ALL ABOUT RETRO DRAMA.

There's a reason that women like Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and Veronica Lake are considered some of the most beautiful women in the world—they mastered the art of timelessness—exuding glamour and sex appeal, with no apologies. Today’s young stars like Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox, Eva Longoria and Scarlett Johansson are recreating the classic look that their predecessors perfected. Unleash your inner femme fatale with help from celebrity makeup artist and native of Afghanistan, Matin, of the international firm of Artists by Timothy Priano.

The focal point of this masterpiece, a carefully drawn cat eye, has an instantly uplifting effect. For a flawless result, Matin suggests using a black cream eyeliner and a firm, pointy brush like a lip brush. “I prefer to do the wing on the outer eye first, get the angle and the extension right and then bring it in thinner and thinner until it disappears into the inner corner of the lash line,”Matin instructs. Keep it simple for maximum impact. “I see a lot of texture and shimmer piled onto the eyelids of many women when they want drama, but the drama comes from the liner and the lashes, not the amount of eye shadow.” For full fabulous lashes, wiggle the brush at the root and quickly comb through to the tips.

Instantly dress up any look by sweeping on some red lipstick. For a luscious pout, wear this hue only over well hydrated lips.“To keep it modern, don’t overdo it with lip liner,” Matin advises. To keep your scarlet kiss in place all night long, Matin suggests blotting with a tissue, and while the tissue is still pressed on the lips, dust translucent loose powder over them through the veil of the tissue. Then apply a second coat. The finishing touch to your look? A touch of bronzer to warm the complexion and a bit of highlighter to look lit from within. “Dust shimmer along the cheekbone for evening flair,” Matin says.
