How to Look Like Flo the Progressive Lady


It's Flo! The Progressive lady! 
(*For all my non-US peeps- Flo is the character in all the commercial for the US insurance company called Progressive. She looks like she's from the 50's and has funny sayings!)
You know...bumped up hair, red lips, head band...white apron that has awesome "Flo-isms" like
UNICORNS AND GLITTER!!!!!!
You guys asked for FLO...and so FLO you shall have!


How to get Flo's Make-Up:
FACE: I used the lightest foundation and concealer I had to look extra fair, like Flo. I used my Cover FX trio in 

FLO EYES: I used a flesh toned eye shadow from the BEN NYE GLAM palette in SHELL or AU NATURELLE
For Flo's black liquid liner: I used the Rapid Black Liner pen from MAC
and any black eyeshadow to fix and wobbles or wiggles you might make with the liquid liner
FLO'S LIPSTICK:
I used CHERRY POP lipliner (LP-149) from Ben NYE - any cool fake-cherry red lip liner will work
Lipstick: Any bright red that's very cool- that is the classic pin-up red color! I used FLIRT ALERT BETTY from Benefit, but I think it may have been a limited color. (I think the make-up artist that does Flo's make-up used LadyBug from MAC, but I don't own that color, so I used this one. You could use Ruby Woo or for a cheap alternative, you could use Tribute to Marilyn from NYX!
BECAUSE INSURANCE MAKES her BLUSH:
I used a rosy-peachy-pink blush from NARS called AMOUR

FLO LASHES:
apply your favorite mascara as a base
FAKE LASHES: I used Ardell #110 Demi Black Lashes -they are one my fav false lashes to use for any pin-up look!



FLO's HAIR & WIG:
Using your real hair to tease like Flo's:
Just use a round boar bristle brush or teasing brush and hair spray (see video for how to do it)

Flo's wig:
I just used a brown hair "soccer mom" styled wig and teased the top to look like Flo's...because they were sold out of the Flo wigs when I wanted to buy one to make this video! But  CLICK HERE to see if they are in STOCK YET, probably not! ha ha


HOW TO CREATE FLO'S COSTUME:
WHAT YOU NEED:
WHITE POLO SHIRT (Mine if from American Apparel)
WHITE JEANS
THIN BROWN WATCH (You can get a cheap one at Wal-Mart or the thrift store)
BLUE OR BLACK CHUCK TAYLOR'S CONVERSE SHOES (I have both colors in my closet actaully! ha ha ha)
BLUE HEADBAND
WHITE PROGRESSIVE APRON
PROGRESSIVE BADGES AND NAME TAG

You can get the "official" Progressive apron, Flo name badge and "I heart Insurance" pin from Amazon.
