Vintage PinUp Hair Tutorial for Victory Rolls and Updo 1940s

How To Do 1950s Retro Make-Up Like Audrey Hepburn (Celebrity Style) Make-up artist Jo Reid shows you how to do the iconic retro look as made famous by Audrey Hepburn, Scarlett Johansson and Gwen Stefani. Eyebrows should be thick, lift slightly at the arch and taper towards the end. Prime the eyelids with primer, foundation and translucent powder. Apply a matte, sable eyeshadow to the eyelid from the base of lashes up into the socket. Apply the same colour underneath as an eyeliner to make your eyes look larger. Use a gel eyeliner along the top lashes, taking the line up and out, and increase the pressure as you move to the outer edge of the eye to get a thicker line. Use a thickening mascara on the top lashes, wiggling the wand from side to side to coat each lash. Apply under eye concealer and blend down and out. Create a matte complexion with translucent powder. Contour the cheekbones with a matt contouring powder, and apply it with an angled brush, starting at the highest point of the dip in the cheek.

5 Foods You Have In Your Kitchen That Should Be In Your Hair | Crunchy Betty - StumbleUpon Baking soda should be in your hair if it has build-up. Let’s make a pact today. You and me. From now on, when we have a beauty issue, we’ll look in the cabinets – first – before we run out and buy an expensive (or even bargain) product to fix us. And, I know, I know … there’s just something a little bit comforting about picking up a bottle of FancySchmancy-Make-You-Fabulous Potion; there’s some weird satisfaction in forking over your hard-earned money to feel hot. But there’s a new and better feeling from fixing it yourself — by rummaging through your kitchen.

Traditional Beauty Tips Everyone hates being told, “I told you so,” and most women also hate thinking their mother was right. However, on stepping upon the threshold of thirty, and with my South Asian mother now in her early sixties, I can’t help but notice that on a good day, she looks not more than maybe only five or ten years older. And with each wrinkle, thinned out skin or spot I notice, I hear her quite literally echoing voice telling me “I told you so.” So what was it exactly that she used to always harp on about while growing up? Quite simply: endless beauty tips that at that time seemed to have been carved on stone tablets alongside Moses’ Ten Commandments. In my own desperate attempt to look great, I have ventured down every possible winding road that ultimately lead me nowhere, pick-pocketing my hard earned dollars with daylight robbery rates and empty promises of youth and beauty. Once a week, use a natural honey face mask for softer skin and cleansed pores. Sleep.

How to: Fix broken powder cosmetics. By Sheila Arkee So, you have a favorite eyeshadow, pressed powder, or blush you absolutely cannot live without. Life happens, and sometimes before you even realize it, you find yourself the owner of your favorite product, smashed into 5 million little pieces. When your powder cosmetics are broken into 5 million pieces, you can always put them in a small container and use as a loose shadow, but you DO have the option of fixing the products so it’s almost as good as new. It’s easy! The only extra product you’ll need is Rubbing Alcohol that you can get from any old drugstore. Here is a lovely L’Oreal H.I.P. #319 eyeshadow that was sadly broken upon arrival. Step 1: Dump the shadow into a small bowl. Step 2: Use the back of a brush to crush the shadow into a fine powder. Step 3: I used the cap to my rubbing alcohol as a measurement and poured it into the container with the shadow. I used a wooden stirrer that I had lying around, but you can use a spoon or anything you want. Step 7: All set!
