To achieve this old school, dead-eyed, femme fatal look, here are some ways to channel your inner Lana Del Rey:
Big hair is a must!
Don’t think we’ve seen her in any photo with less than 2 inches of teasing from her dome. You know what they say- the bigger the hair, the closer you are to heaven
Cat eyes / long lashes
A side way glance isn’t as seductive without some major eye lash batting. Don’t afraid to go thick with the liner and heavy with the lashes.
There’s a difference between pouty lips and duck lips. Pouty preceeds the full duck look so please pout with precaution. If you’re not thick lipped like our girl Lana, stick with nude colors.
And last but not least, the one thing that binds this look – the dead eyed, come hither face:
This face isn’t as easy to perfect as the hair teasing or even the cat eye but I believe with much practise and patience, you too can have this look mastered.
Isn’t she such a doll? It’s about time the retro bombschell look made a comeback, and no one does it better than Lana Del Rey herself.
