Soooo much easier! This is the second lipstick palette I put together, and it took me a half of day (not as easy as it looks) but you must update it before the lipsticks expire of course!
With a mix of Pin up hair with vivid makeup shades, Pat McGrath called this "Technicolor Betty Page". I love it!!! Every model's eyelids were a different color. John Galliano picked which girls would wear which color on the eyes." The colors he chose from were blue, fuchsia, orange, lime green, purple, and red.
The way I would recommend to achieve this look is as follows:
A velvet foundation one shade lighter than your skin tone to create a really clean, fair, or bright complextion.
Concealer where needed
Loose powder to set
Fill eyebrows in to your own nice, natural, and full shape
Contour your cheek bones, try sculpting kit from Makeup Forever
Use a very light peachy/pinky matte blush just on apples of cheeks
Use either a creme shadow winged out (how thick your preference) or a colored pencil. Try either Nars creme shadow for some natural colors or Makeup Forever aqua eyeliners in bolder colors
Use a very light coat of mascara
Dust some shimmer on your cheekbones, try Laura Mercier mineral illuminating powder
Apply lip balm to lips for 5 minutes, blot off, line your lips with a red lip liner, fill in lip completely, add a dab of lip balm, and fill in lips with a red lipstick

Evening beauty tip: After washing your face and moisturizing it, brush your eyebrows with a clean mascara spoolie into the ideal shape you would like it to lay. The moisturizer helps to almost gel it down and keep it in place, and allow your brows to grow in the direction you would like :)

Thanks to the tremendous support for this initiative, we have reached our goal of raising funds to restore five original costumes from Gone With The Wind. If you wish to make a donation to help support the Ransom Center'sGone With The Wind 2014 exhibition, which coincides with the film's 75th anniversary, we are currently raising funds for this purpose.
No movie costume has captured the imagination of film goers more than Scarlett O'Hara's Green Velvet Curtain Dress from Gone With The Wind. The Harry Ransom Center is home to five dresses worn by the actress Vivien Leigh in this Hollywood masterpiece. The costumes are from the collection of David O. Selznick, the legendary filmmaker who produced Gone With The Wind and other classics including A Star Is Born, Rebecca, and Duel in the Sun.
The costumes are in fragile condition and cannot currently be exhibited. The Center would like to display the costumes in 2014 as part of a major exhibition celebrating the 75th anniversary of Gone With The Wind. The Center also wants to be able to loan the dresses to other museums around the world.
We are currently raising funds to restore the dresses, to purchase protective housing suitable for shipping them to other institutions, and to purchase custom-fitted mannequins that will allow them to be properly displayed.
Gone With The Wind Costumes at the Ransom Center
Blue Velvet Peignoir
It seems unthinkable that the costumes from one of Hollywood's most legendary films,"Gone with the Wind," aren't displayed securely at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or some other venerable house of history.
But alas, the key costumes worn by actress Vivien Leigh as the tempestuous Scarlett O'Hara in that 1939 opus are actually in peril.
The famous green "curtain dress," among others, have been languishing for years in a back room of the Harry Ransom Center, a humanities research library and museum at the University of Texas at Austin -- lacking the funds to be restored to exhibition-ready condition.
But now the center has launched a public initiative to raise $30,000 to restore and preserve five original costumes from the film.
The dresses were part of the collection of David O. Selznick, a well-known Hollywood producer in the 1930s and 1940s, which included over 5,000 boxes of Hollywood memorabilia.
All five sweeping gowns -- most of which are currently too fragile to be exhibited -- were worn by Leigh.
There's the green curtain dress, which O'Hara made to fool Rhett Butler into thinking she was still well-off after the war; the green velvet dressing gown; the burgundy ball gown; the blue velvet peignoir and the wedding dress she wore when she married Charles Hamilton to spite her true love, Ashley Wilkes.
Donations, which can be made online, will allow for the restoration of the original dresses and the purchase of protective housing and custom-fitted mannequins to allow for proper exhibition.
The center hopes to display the costumes in 2014 as part of an exhibition celebrating the 75th anniversary of "Gone With The Wind," and to be able to loan the dresses to museums internationally.
