Get The Look: Pan Am Girls Makeup

If you follow me on Twitter , you probably know that I was desperate to find any information about the makeup used on Pan Am. But it did not bring any success, unfortunately.

This is why I was extremely happy to recieve this information the other day!

I just have to share it with you:

Patricia Regan, the head make-up artist for PAN AM, worked closely with Chad and Scott, owners of 3 Custom Color, to create a working palette for the show inspired by the 1960′s stewardesses handbook that, amongst other things, required the gals to ‘Wear a defined eye and coral lips and cheeks’.

“My inspiration comes from extensive photographs of 1963—fashion, documentary, and people, as well as Pan Am history,” says Regan. “I try to combine the style of the past and with the tools of the present to give a fresh new look!” Here’s how she achieved it.

1) Apply a matte-finish foundation, plus I love to use the 3 Custom Clarifying pencil on the inside step to really brighten eyes.

2) Brows are an important part of this look, brush and groom them to define natural fuller shape, fill in and extend a touch with a matching brow shade.

3) Apply eye shadow – in Cool Sky, Cool Celery – both used on Margot Robbie & Karine Vanasse or Warm Lilac – used on Christina Ricci & Kelli Garner – all over your eyelid to just above the crease.

4) Draw a line along upper lashes with either the black or brown Opaline Eyeliner.

5) Apply a couple of layers of mascara, for extra drama, try a couple of individual false lashes on outer corners!

6) Add a generous sweep of cream blusher to the apple of the cheeks. I used the Three Custom Color Lip & Cheek Stain in Poppy on all of the stars. This is the coral we mixed specifically to match the look in the PAN AM manual.

You can get all the products that were mentioned at Cult Beauty.

Looks like I need that Three Custom Color Lip & Cheek Stain in Poppy in my life!

  1. I recently purchased this palette and it is simply gorgeous. The colors will literally take your breath away. They are soft, baby colors that will highlight anyone’s look and the cheek and lip stain is perfect as well. For the price, you are getting 3 products, 2 eyeshadows, normally 21.50 each and the lip stain, usually the same price. So if you purchase this palette, not only will have a gorgeous new palette with which to create new looks, but you’ll be saving money as well. That’s something we could all use at the present time.

    I highly recommend this palette.

  2. I was interested to see what they used and it was only when was browsing Cult Beauty that I stumbled upon the 3 Custom Color and it said it was used in PAN AM. I bought the Opaline Eye Definer in Aurora.

    I really love this show, I hope it continues and doesn’t get axed!
