If you look around on instagram, you’ll see beautiful vintage inspired hairstyles everywhere. Search on #vintagehair for example. In my opinion, a lot of those hairstyles are more appropriate for medium hairstyles, so in my case my hair is actually too long. Besides that, vintage hairstyles are not really an option for me during workdays.
If you’re into retro chic red lipsticks and you want some new shades: this one is for you. So last year I became a huge fan of the retro makeup brand Besame Cosmetics. Still love the brand. Unfortunately, they decided to withdraw their delivery to Europe stockists a couple of months ago. That was actually a huge disappointment, because I had just decided that this was the ultimate brand when it comes to longlasting, highly pigmented red lipstick.
The last weeks, I’ve been thinking about the fun I had last year, when I started watching Mad Men, while everyone else was already at the last season. I don’t know where I was, but somehow I wasn’t aware of the existence of Don Draper & co in 2007.
It all started with couch potato activities last Tuesday when I came home after a nice dinner. Yes, couch potato activities can be very good for your creativity. Since I use Snapchat only for the filters, I decided to check if there were some new filters added that day. After chuckling about a hilarious filter, I decided to try out the “face swap with another picture” option. It’s actually a filter that I always skip. But not anymore. I finally understand the “hype” of this filter.
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.
