Get Inspired by Janella Salvador's Retro Makeup Look

Want to dip your toes into the retro world? Use Janella's makeup look as your stepping stone.

Everybody's obsessed with Riverdale and it's not just because of the story or the super hot actors playing the roles of Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Archie. It's the entire retro vibe of the show that captivates its viewers. And once or twice, we know you've thought about copying some of their looks.

Janella Salvador is one step ahead of us as she sports a very retro makeup style on her Instagram with the caption, "Oh, archiekins!" obviously referring to our current favorite fictional character.

She would fit perfectly in the show, don't you think? Now, don't be jealous because we're about to teach you exactly how to get the look.

It's very simple, really there's nothing complicated about this makeup.

Start off with your brows. Make sure it's well-defined but at the same time, keep it natural.

Blend it to perfection with Ever Bilena Kris Brow Liner And Brow Mascara.

Foundation can be optional here. You can simply apply concealer where it's necessary to hide blemishes or redness on the face.

The key point in this makeup look is the highlight and contour so make sure you really put the dimensions on your face using a contouring palette like Banila Co. So Contouring Tinted Jelly.

This is a gel-type product that adds definition on your face without the harsh edges just like Janella in her photo. It can also double as your blush.

Now don't forget to highlight the important parts just like when reviewing for your exam. Apply a straight line of highlight on the bridge of your nose and also on the area directly under both of your eyes.

This product easily blends into your skin and it sticks to whatever makeup layer comes before or after you apply it.

Then put a light coat of mascara on your eyelashes just for added dramatic effect using the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. This will give you instant volume for full lashes and fan it out from corner to corner. Don't forget to put some on your lower lashes too! It will make you look like a doe-eyed doll.

Don't worry about the price because it really does give you the best lipstick quality there is. It's long-wearing and it really gives your lips intense color with a matte finish which is exactly what you need to achieve this look.

Wear a polka-dot dress and curl your hair in big ocean-like waves and you're ready to walk into the set of Riverdale just like Janella.
