B.O.F Vintage.


It’s time for another  Beauties on Fire Collaboration! This week’s theme is Vintage! beauties-on-fire-logo

Vintage..this holds a special place in my heart. Basically, as a child, I grew up in the 50's. My dad always had classic cars and we went to car shows, sock hops, and other really cool events. While most kids were playing with their Nintendo or game boy, I spent my days thumbing through records and listening to them with my dad. Not much has changed here.

When I was little my dad always had awesome cars. When I was a child he transformed a Barbie Convertible to match his from paint to working under chassis lights and even a radio.

Fast forward to now. In my own makeup I get a lot of inspiration from the 45's, 50's and even 60's, my go to is always the cat eye with red lips, though I tend to add to that from time to time.

Some of my idols are Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Diana Dors, and of course Bettie Paige.

I love when I get to do pin-up Style make up for Street Scenes Photography and Shutter Bee Photography too. It's one of my favorite styles when we shoot. Here are some pictures from past photo shoots.

 Funny story about this shoot. This was actually at my parent's house. My dad had turned a room in the house into a 5o's style diner complete with record players and a Jukebox.

So what are my go to's for achieving the 50's look?

Foundation: You can use any that you like I love the Maybelline Fit Me Matte +Poreless

Eye Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade

Eye shadows: The eye shadow look is very subtle and natural all focus is on the cat eye liner. I sick with a skin tone shadow for all over the lid, maybe with a little sparkle. Then, I go in with a darker shade for the crease to dive more depth to the eyes.

Liner: Hand's down Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Though you may use whatever you prefer.

Blush: I like a very subtle blush, The Balm DownBoy is one of my favorites.

Mascara: You may use which ever mascara you like. I love Too Face Better Than Sex  or Benefit Roller Lash

Lips: Show stopping red lips are a staple. There are so many reds out there it's hard to choose. Here's a few that I stick with Kat Von D Outlaw. NYX Snow White, MAC Red, Urban Decay F Bomb.
