This I Love Lucy costume makeup tutorial from YouTuber Kandee Johnson is a fun way to doll yourself up just like Lucille Ball if you're feeling like doing a real throwback this Halloween.
Although there are tons of retro-inspired pinup looks that you can easily find on YouTube, this one is specifically modeled after Lucille Ball and features a heavier application of makeup than you'd normally wear on a daily basis. To really transform herself into the funny actress from the 50s, Kandee carefully shapes her face with contouring and highlights to mimic her bone structure as much as possible. Since the eyebrows are one of the most dramatic parts of the face, this look involves concealing your eyebrows entirely and drawing on a brand new pair. The 50s look is of course rounded out by a bright shade of red lipstick and an equally as vibrant red wig.
