REd lips

Red lips are a classic symbol of the old money aesthetic, because they are timeless and elegant. I often choose a red lip to add a touch of sophistication to a minimal makeup look. Opt for a bold red lip with a simple makeup base and then add a touch of mascara to create a chic look. The beauty of red lips is that they will never go out of style and they also elevate any outfit.

perfect brows

To achieve that old money makeup look, it’s important to have perfect brows, because they help to frame the face. Maintaining well-groomed brows through regular waxing and trimming is essential for this polished look. I also find using a brow pencil or brow pomade is important for keeping them neatly in place and looking their best.
