MAC makeup artist James Kaliardos started off his 1940s-inspired look by using Select Moisture Cover on the face and body.

As for the lips, use Dim Liperase followed by So Vein Kissable Lip Color and your choice of peach/pink lip blush.
CND manicurist Amanda Fontanarrosa created the 1940s-inspired Monogram Moon Manicure, complete with the Ruffian logo. Get the look by layering one coat of CND’s Putty with one coat of CND’s Washed Down White. Create a half-moon with CND’s Blackjack and then paint on a top coat of CND’s Air Dry.
