So, we’ve done clothes. We’ve done homes. We’ve done gardens. We’ve done pretty much everything pretty, as well as a few dashing and suave suit bargains thrown in for good measure. So what haven’t we done? Makeup, that’s what. If you’re going all out for full-on vintage glamour, your look will never be complete unless you’ve got that vintage makeup look down pat too. I’ve decided to concentrate on the three areas I think are important in this respect – brows, lips and cheeks.
What do you think of when you think of vintage-looking lips? Well, I’m guessing quite a lot of you will answer ‘big’ and ‘bright red’. And I’m not going to argue. That same Look Fantastic voucher code mentioned before can get you a whole heap of rowdy reds to choose from, including this Makeup Works Lipstick in Scarlet Rouge. But for a more subtle, but no less vintagey sheen, use this House of Fraser free online voucher to buy a Smiths Rosebud Salve, reduced from £8 to £5.
We’re not talking bronzer here, we’re talking soft pinks and rosy cheeks. Back to the Benefit Cosmetics shopping voucher for such beauties as Dandelion Brightening Face Powder or Benetint Rose-Tinted Lip and Cheek Stain. Or use the House of Fraser discount voucher for A Wild About Beauty Ultra Sheer Powder Blush in the lovely Lucy shade, reduced from £17.50 to £16.
So don’t forget about those faces and that they could well complete your look. And we haven’t even talked about nails! Maybe that’s for another future post…
