More of the 1960’s: Get the Makeup Look of Tina Aumont

1960's Makeup look of Tina Aumont

Tina is so young here! She has to be under 20 in this picture. She grew up fast, getting married at 17. Anyways, I like this look. It’s seem to be what people are going for these days. This look works for most people, but I do think it does look the best on complexion similar to Tina’s. Here’s what I did to achieve a modern day version of Tina’s look:

Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning for Face & Decollete Review

How I have I not written a review about this sooner? This is my favorite Clarins product. Yes, you can gasp. My favorite product from Clarins in a self tanner. This is shocking because #1 I like many Clarins products and #2 I like to look pale. Or so you think…

I don’t mind looking pale. Sometimes that’s why I wear dark or very bold pink lipsticks. I like this look. However, I don’t like to look Western Washington pale. Listen up, Twilight Edward’s pale skin is not difficult to… Continue reading | 5 Comments

More 1930’s Fashion: Get the Look of Dorothy Lamour

Dorothy Lamour

I thought this would be a nice summer vintage look. I love it because it is a “no-fuss” classic look without the powdered complexion and matte red lips. Dorothy had a stunning look even though this Louisianan beauty queen was typecast to be the “exotic” babe. Her look was unlike other 30’s starlets. All went well as she proved that she was more than a long-haired beauty in a sarong. She had talent. *Speaking of sarongs, how badly I want her dress in this pic! What an amazing… Continue reading | 2 Comments

MAC To The Beach (Ya’ll) Summer 2010 Color Collection

To be honest, I think the only reason that I like this summer collection is because of the packaging. It’s a “print” that is found throughout my home decor. (Think Thomaspaul creepy sealife prints found on pillows, etc. and antique sealife prints). The motifs are the ones featured on the model’s ill-fitting swimsuit. The colors aren’t anything new. In fact, many are the same colors MAC has all year but in snazzy summer packaging.

The collection describes itself as such: “The seaside has a kind of golden, sexy alchemy we’re

Bobbi Brown 2010 Cabana Corals Color Collection

I love coral makeup. Corals, peaches, apricots, salmons do so much for my complexion. I know many people stray away from coral, thinking of their Italian-American great aunt with the deep olive skin paired with electric coral lipstick, sandal-toe pantyhose, and open toe “bone” colored pumps. I think great-aunt is a Sophia Loren-ish fox, but I have learned that many people dislike the look. I think coral works on the peaches and cream complexions and the deeper Floridian complexions. I many not wear MAC Morange lipstick everyday but I do wear… Continue reading
