Quick Rockabilly look

Hello everyone, today i have a quick and simple rockabilly look to share so if that's your bag then keep on reading.


Hair
Hair is amazingly simple to do. and trust me if i can do it, it really is simple as I'm rubbish when it comes to hair. Simply put your hair in a high pony tail and quiff, how big is entirely down to preference. Then get a small scarf, i got this one from primark you can't see in the pictures but the purple parts are skulls. It's completely your choice on scarf but bare in mind if you want a rockabilly look bright colours, polka dots, skulls etc your on to a winner. With you scarf you want to fold it in half then grabbing the pointed end fold it down until you get a bandanna shape. Then wrap it round and tie it with the knot on one side, tighten it slightly and then secure it at the back, behind your ears using bobby bins. Once you feel it's secure then tighten completely and tie again to make a knot, then slide another bobby pin by the knot to secure it at the top. If you tie it too tight without the bobby pins first you will most likely find it will slide straight off. I then just threw on this checkered shirt over a white vest top to add to the look. 


Make-up

Face
- Estee Lauder double wear liquid foundation in ecru 
- LUSH feeling younger skin tint (under eye area)
- No7 quick cover blemish stick in fair 9under eye area)
- Rimmel match perfection powder foundation in true ivory
- Rimmel match perfection blush in medium
- Soap & Glory solar powder (contour and highlight)

Eye's 
- No7 matte mocha eye shadow (to fill in eyebrows)
- MUA intense colour eyeliner pencil in rich brown (inner top lash line)
- Rimmel glam eyes liquid eyeliner (above lashes)
- MUA every lash mascara (1st mascara)
- Rimmel scandal eyes mascara (2nd mascara)
- MUA heaven & earth eye shadow palette shade 1 (highlighter) shade 7 (all over lid) and shade 4 (contour), please see my palette wars post for swatches.

Lips
- Maybelline colour sensational lip stick in shade summer pink 




 I think the make-up looks great with or without the rockabilly look and considering I'm still learning with eyeshadow I'm very pleased with how my eye's turned out. I also took my hair down as i was just about to go on a driving lesson and wasn't feeling the head scarf. Anyway i hope you enjoyed this little tutorial i suppose you could call it that haha. I also want to say a massive thank you to all my followers i recently hit 50 and i know that might not be a milestone to some but it is to me and truly does mean alot :D!  Thank you for reading, don't forget to follow if you haven't already and i hope to see you all soon
