Bridal Looks – Vintage & Classic

A couple of weeks ago, I did a shout-out for models. (If you’re interested, please contact me!)   A model, Maresa E., reached out to me and we decided to do a bridal make-over.   Here are the two looks I created under the bridal theme of…

Antipodean Beauties – Summer

Antipodean Beauties Banner

Okay, I know there has been a lack of posts lately but for some reason my social life decided to pick itself up!  Now, since I have been absent, I thought I would do 2 Antipodean Beauties posts in the next couple of days.

This post will be about summer.  If you are in Australia, I hope you survived the really hot heat lately!  (looks like summer decided to come around too!)  Here’s my summer look..

What’s summer without the bronzer?

Decided to put my hair up since it’s too hot to have my hair down and in my face!

Here are the products I used…

Face MakeUp

Antipodean Beauties – Old School Glamour

This week’s challenge is Old School Glamour.

To be honest, I have been waiting for this challenge!  I decided to do some Old School Glamour with a 1930s Shanghai woman because I personally find them so elegant.

Here is what google comes up with for the 1930s Shanghai woman.

And here is what I came up with:

I went just a tad heavy on the blush, and had skinnier brows and lips.  Also, I went slightly lighter for my foundation colour since women in that era liked the lighter tones.  Unfortunately, I did not notice the bit of curl sticking out too much, plus it turned out to be more like hair from Downton Abbey.  What do you think?  Did I do the 1930s woman justice?

Stay Beautiful!!
