Beauty Pick Me Up - Retro Glam!

With the likes of Susan B. Anthony and huge steps in the feminist movement, women have progressed a long way since the yester-years of the 1940's and '50's. But while we're keeping the voting rights and wearing the pants, one thing that we are looking back towards is the glamorous beauty look.


With cat-eye liner and bold red lips, plus lush long lashes and naturally rosy cheeks, it was the time when make-up was precise and feminine, enhancing the natural features. A retro beauty style is always in style and gives a casual look like a white tee and boyfriend jeans a decidedly girly feel. Add a fun head scarf to complete the look. Or try a sweet dress and heeled mary-janes, with a finger-wave for a more dressy ensemble that really borrows from the 50's era.


Click on the slideshow to see some of our tried and true picks that will make getting the retro glam beauty look for yourself!
