I hope you’ve all been well.
Autumn is here, Halloween, Bonfire night and kicking around leaves! These are the only reasons I love this time of year (and christmas) as I really hate the cold! On Halloween I never like to dress as the same character twice, my outfits are most of the time Disney themed or comic book themed, occasionally scary costumes.. This year I decided to be Poison Ivy and sewed some faux leaves on to a corset, but there was also a dress up day at work, so decided to be Jigsaw from Saw. In a moment of boredom I also decided to play around with make up and become Frankenstein’s Monster’s Bride! All the make up I used was just in my make up box and inspired by videos on YouTube.
This December I’m going back to New York with my boyfriend, Matt, which I can’t wait for! It’s definitely going to be freezing so I needed a new coat; a coat that’s warm but a vintage, old hollywood style. I ended up buying a Topshop red faux fur collar coat, which is so lovely.
I’ve also been experimenting with more vintage hair styles, using foam rollers and pin curls with 1:1 water and setting lotion to wet set it. I normally use heated rollers or do “headband curls” overnight, which is where you just wrap your hair around a headband over and over; there are YouTube videos for this! But I feel this doesn’t hold for long or give that classic vintage look as well; So below are the results of my hair sets, how I did it and the vintage hair inspiration from my favourite old hollywood and current actresses for the look.
Also this month I purchased a lip product called Velvetines in “Red Velvet” by a company called Limecrime. This product is amazing, it’s like a lip gloss but comes out like a matte lipstain/lipstick. You know this product is good when I use it more than my beloved Mac’s Russian Red! I make sure I put a lipliner on first so it doesn’t bleed, I use Mac’s Cherry lipliner but whatever works for you!
Here are the photos to sum up my month with my old hollywood inspiration as always. Thanks for reading!
