So one of my favorite things to do during the weekend is watch old movies. I don’t mean movies from my childhood, but movies that my grandmother would watch when she was a young woman. Even though the story lines are usually expressed in a dated fashion, the message and plots are similar to what I experience today. I am a Netflix subscriber and I must give them credit for having a great selection of vintage films.
This past weekend I watched ‘Valley of the Dolls‘ and although I had heard of the title, I had never seen the movie. It was a take on the rise and fall of young Hollywood starlets, but what stood out to me a bit more than the plot line was the hair and makeup. I was totally inspired by the blushed cheeks, full lashes, barely there pink lipstick and eyeliner on the top lid.
It made me want to run to the store, buy some lashes and turn myself into a vintage vixen. I’ll shoot a look soon!
