OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAM

OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAM

Here’s a simple way to get a vintage inspired look. Eventually we’ll be going into more advanced looks, but some of you may have never tried this look before and we don’t want to scare you off! Pair this video with the “Hint of Vintage” photo tutorial for the ultimate loveliness!

Tools: Foundation, foundation brush or sponge, translucent powder or light-weight powder, blush brush, bronzer, black liquid liner, black mascara, red lipstick

•      Start by applying an even layer of foundation to your face being sure to cover any redness, blemishes or dark circles.

•      Lightly dust your face with powder for a velvety finish.

•      Comb through your brows and fill them in using a brown pencil one shade darker than your natural color.

•      Sweep bronzing powder starting directly under your cheekbones, across your hair line and under your jaw line.

•      Now apply black liquid liner to your lids and extend the line beyond the corner of your eye for added drama.

•      Next apply two coats of black mascara.

•      To complete the look, apply red lipstick.

Let’s start at the very beginning. I’ve heard it’s a very good place to start. This is just a hint of vintage, and not full on Rita Hayworth (although we will get there). This is one of my favorite looks that you can wear anywhere without feeling over-done or too literal. It flirts with old school 1940′s glamour but doesn’t feel costume-y. Lauren sometimes pairs this with something simple because it instantly redefines your entire look.

TOOLS:

-1″ barrell curling iron

-large setting clips

-flat/paddle brush-light

-medium hold hairspray

INSTRUCTIONS:

1) Find your side part. Either side will do.

2, 3, 4 & 5) You’re going to curl ALL of your hair inward toward your face (as Lauren does above) and clip the curls in place with large setting clips. Mist all over with a light-medium holding hairspray. Let them cool while you put on your makeup. Multi-Tasking!! Give it atleast 15 minutes to cool and set.

6) Gently pull the clips out and let your hair fall.

7) Using a flat or paddle brush, brush hair back and away from your face and then let it spring back. The wave pattern will automatically start to appear. Keep brushing gently until it shows up. We like to help it along by molding the waves where you want them by hand and then adding one more veil of hairspray.
