I will confess now that I am 100% totally in awe of Agent Peggy Carter and her kick ass ways. I also adore the brilliant human Hayley Atwell who plays her so well and seems throughly lovely too. I have watched the first three episodes of season two and they haven't lost any of the pace or style from the first series. Loving the twist that Peggy is now in L.A. brings and I can see the start of a love triangle but I hope they don't have too much focus on that. Plus her style is to die for. That jump suit in episode 2: Perfection!
Aaaaaanyway..... As my size changes through this pregnancy I'm looking for ways to keep my style geek chic without my usual wardrobe. Some days I can feel a bit frumpy so today I thought I'd cheer myself up with some glamorous vintage make up a lá Agent Carter. It's a classic look that everyone can achieve with beauty essentials from your make up bag. Let me tell you now that I am not a make up artist. This is how I do my make up and you can tweak the look and techniques to your own preference!
Peggy's foundation is flawless so I know it's important to properly prep my skin so I cleanse, tone and moisturise first. Then I put on concealer and foundation. This makes my skin tone nice and even. Normally I'd apply a light dusting of bronzer but to make my complexion that of an 'English Rose' I just apply a light dusting of powder. So no shiny patches and add a sweep of blush for some colour in my cheeks!
Next up eyes. Peggy's eyes are a natural and smokey. I have started my eyes with my a simple black eyeliner. My top tip for even flicks is to put a little dot on each eye then join this to the line drawn on your lashes. It makes them nice and neat and you only have to remove little dots if you don't think they are even!
My eyeshadow is darker brown in the sockets and blended to a lighter colour. Then added lashings of mascara. I'm making snooty faces in the pics below so you can see the shading.
Lastly I applied my favourite shade of red lipstick to complete my Agent Carter style make up.
To make me feel more glamorous I put on some red nail varnish, my new black dress and headed out to my friends engagement party. With the help of Peggy I felt stylish and not big and pregnant!
I wish I could do my hair like Peggy's it's so darn pretty. Alas I'll stick with my straight blond bob! Have you ever dressed Agent Carter Style?
