I had a bit of a lazy morning today. Spent most of it working on some graphics for my Beau's business twitter account. So I had plenty of time to set some hot rollers and create a look inspired by the photographs from yesterday.
So I fired up my $24.99 set of hot rollers and went to work. I call this look my Quick and Dirty retro look. After curling the whole look only took about 15 minutes or so. When I'm going for that accurate look I take more time with my hair and usually use sponge rollers set over night. Girls of those days always seemed to have every curl and hair in line, but I wanted this to be fun, a little bit messy, but still recognizably retro. Yay or Nay?
I went with the flat faced 40s make-up routine that I mentioned yesterday. A very flat base foundation with a mineral powder. Combined that with dark eye shadow liner. I've been having a serious allergy issue with eyeliners lately and have had to settle for black eyeshadow and a wet brush. Seems to be working out pretty well, but I miss my thick smooth liquid liner lines. I used some shimmer dust around the eye which seems to show up a whole lot more in the photos, but just believe me when I say it's not that defined in reality. Not too shabby for a 5 minute make-up job.
And on another quick note. I have 7 followers! Oh! Em! Gee! I know this is like nothing to most of you, but I've never had followers before. Thanks so much for your support and comments! It makes posting things like this really fun and awesome.
Just noticed I forgot to fill in my beauty marks! I'm running to do that now. Best!
