Going back to the roots today. Oriental meets retro! The typical fifties retro look with winged eyes and red lipstick is obviously my favorite. Especially since it takes me only 10 minutes in the morning. However, I do like to create oriental meets retro looks every now and then. I already showed you some of my oriental meets retro makeup looks a few months ago.
Looking at my dressing table, I can see my red lipstick collection is always growing. I haven’t hit the 50 shades yet, but it wouldn’t surprise me if I actually will have 50 shades of red some day. The best part: I actually use them all on a weekly/daily base. I can imagine that people may wonder: Why would anyone need more than one shade of red lipstick. Aren’t they all the same, but just from various brands and obviously a different price category? Well, no. Let me explain to you why and read about my top 5 must-have lipsticks if you’re a red lipstick fan.
Today I wanted to do a post close to the roots but of course with a retro link. Obviously, I am heavily inspired by the vintage styles of the past. However, this blog starts with Oriental Spice for two reasons. First of all, you can take it literally, because I am literally oriental. Secondly, it stands for food for thought and inspiration next to the lighter things in life (check the inspiration column category if you’re interested). Inspirational food for thought is a topic that always comes back, occasionally with an oriental touch. Remember for example how I wrote about the Indian festival Diwali)? Back to the first reason.
