Makeup like Mom

My latest Rimmel London challenge was to choose an old photo of my mother and attempt to re-create her look, and capture her style.  Here is the photo I chose to re-create:

Yup, this is my mommy circa 1971.  Her bold makeup style is something I have never rocked on a day to day basis and it was quite a challenge to style an eye look that was so precise and so strong! I definitely struggled the most in trying to wear the look with the simple confidence and sweetness captured in her photo.  Here is my end result:

First off, I understand that my hair falls flat in comparison with my mom’s rockin’ cut.  I even tried to completely commit and asked my mom to cut it but, she refused! However, I think I did capture a resemblance overall and, although my mother says I look more like my father, I do see some of her beauty in myself as well.

To achieve this look, I used the following Rimmel London Products:

  • Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in “Warm Honey”
  • Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick #14
  • Stay Glossy Lipgloss in “Non-Stop Glamour”
  • Glam’Eyes Professional Liquid Eyeliner in “Black Glamour”
  • Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in “Jet Black”
  • Rimmel Scandal’Eyes Mascara in “Extreme Black

Thank you Mom, for being such an inspiring beauty- inside and out!

      @Carolin, you can def still mimic her fashion, hair, and even her manerisms (smile, squinty eyes, etc.). I say, try it out and see what happens! :) thanks for taking a look doll! XOXO
