Edwardian Society Lady

I love doing historical looks like this. You can tone up the theatricals & stylizing of this look by doing slightly deeper colors with slightly more pronounced highlights.
Finish off this look with a beautiful rose scented perfume to keep with the era.

Titanic & My Fair Lady are great movies to watch for more stylized ideas.

Products Used:
Foundation- Revlon Colorstay or Makeup Forever Mat Velvet +
Mixing Founation (to make your foundation easier to blend)- Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse (Porcelain Ivory adds a great pink tone & creamy texture for fair to light medium skin) or Makeup Forever HD Foundation (adds a nice luminosity)

Lipsticks- Revlon Just Bitten in Crave, Maybelline Colorsensational in Bitten Berry, CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Eternal,, or Revlon Matte in Really Red (I don't suggest this one, even though it's the one that I used, I always forget that this color comes out much more orange then it looks in the tube)
Generic Lip Brush

If you find that blending in the lipcolor gave you a smudgy lip line, run a brush with a bit of concealer around the edge of your lip. This will give you a nice crisp edge.
