Accurate 1950s Makeup Colours
This is a scale of colours that I’ve curated through research of the 1950s. The shades are exact colour matches of real 1950s colours. Lipstick: Love that Red Head by Besame, Pink in the Afternoon by Revlon. Blush: Ricardo Rosé by Besame (club babalu pallette) Eyeshadows: Babablu and Tropicana Taupe by Besame (Club babalu pallette) Aqua by MAC (seafoam shade) In the 1950s we start to see a broad range of makeup colours come to the public as restrictions on makeup products are lifted. Lipstick was still a huge deal with (not overdrawn) but full Marilyn style lips. With popular colours being reds and pinks! People tended to use eye shadows that were the same colours as their eyes - blues and greens becoming more popular. Brows became fuller darker and more angled (Audrey hepburn-esque) Blush was peachy and minimal often used as a slight face contour.

Besame Cosmetics Red Lipstick
Carmine 1931 Beautiful coral red that’s perfect for summer - goes on really smoothly and effortlessly. So cool to have a true colour replica from an era gone by. Love that Red Head (I love Lucy collection) Great red lip colour, replica of the lipstick Lucille Ball wore on her tv show “I love Lucy”. Smooth buttery and moisturizing. My only complaint about besame lipsticks is that they transfer quite a bit so you have to reapply often. If you don’t mind doing that then you’ll be all set. They are a bit more expensive that I usually buy - but what you are paying for is the history - packaging and story behind each product.

Besamé Red Velvet Lipstick (1946)
Besamé Red Velvet Lipstick (1946)
Bésame COSMETICS - Classic Color Lipstick I was SO excited to buy this lipstick because I’m a huge Marvel fan and this is the exact lipstick Hayley Atwell wore as Agent Peggy Carter in her tv show and in Captain America: TFA. It feels lightweight on the lips, is a semi-matte formula that has song great staying power. I think the Besamé description from their website does a great job at showing how much care and authenticity is put into these vintage inspired lipsticks. “Inspired by a lipstick shade from 1946. At the heart of the 1940s, the most popular lip color was a more subdued shade of red, elegant and perfect for daily wear. Paired with long curled hair, simple eye makeup, and perfectly manicured brows, it truly embodies the decade. This is our most popular shade of red since it has a neutral undertone, which makes it ideal for all skin tones and excellent to wear for both day and night.”

Pretty but Disappointing
Pretty but Disappointing
Bésame COSMETICS - Peter Pan Golden Sand Bronzer Shell Compact I’m going to be honest, I 100% bought this product for the packaging and the Peter Pan branding without doing any research a few years ago. It gorgeous, and if you’re a Disney collector this will scream your name, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Pros: -Beautiful Packaging -No fragrance -Not too orange or blotchy -Lightly pigmented for building, pretty difficult to mess up Cons: -Although this is lightly pigmented which makes building it up easy, it also means it takes a lot more work and time to do your bronzer -This is the ONLY shade available, which I personally think is ridiculous. I think we’re at a point that companies need to be providing options for every customer. -Expensive. I personally would not repurchase.

Fancy trying sth vintage? I’m in!  Hey gals! Is there anyone else is vintage zealot?! After having been sick of hunting down new products and bothered myself too much with chasing the new it-products, I felt it’s really a time to take a breath and step into the vintage kingdom. As a big fan of vintage, I’m gonna share some babes that step my feet on fire today! Grab a Tequila Sunrise, and have fun with those vintage vibes! Benefit Another brand I can’t live with is Benefit, and I bet you must have ed into them so many times on the shelves of drugstore or shopping mall lolo. Their old-school style cuties are just so lovely that no one can miss! Born in 1976 in San Francisco, Benefit is the brand with the label of timelessness, fan and initialism.  I first heard of this brand from their celeb product, Benetint! At that time, I was searching for something natural-looking and rosy, and one of my friends recommended their Rose Tint to me. This powder blush is boxed and really travel-friendly. Also, it s so well on my cheeks and I just evolve it in my makeup routine.benefit - Dandelion Brightening Powder Blush Apart from their comeback versions of cosmetics, they are cruelty-free and have so many different beauty ! Whatever antique you want, you can always find in Benefit! Besame Cosmetics My top pick is Besame Cosmetics, which accurately captures the essence of vintage aesthetic! I just love their packaging sooooooooo much! In fact, they have come through extensive testing and research to get their shades to match the originals from the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s.  I’ll never be enough for their line's of red lipsticks with various shades, from which I’ve got my best color-matching lady, Red Velvet 1946! 💄It’s super creamy and pigmented, and the beautiful color just reminds me my favorite actress Hayley Atwell with red lips on screen!Bésame COSMETICS - Classic Color Lipstick If you are a real fan of sth vintage, Besame Cosmetics is the one you can't miss! Time to join the vintage crazies’ party! Hope you gals are chilling with classic babes from those vintage-inspired brands xoxo!

✨Lips for the Basic B 😘
✨Lips for the Basic B 😘
I hate having to be picky about what goes on my lips. I want to be the person that can just put on Burts Bees or Carmex and be on my way, but most lip products I come across have a common set of ingredients I have to avoid. Coconut oil and shea butter? Breakouts. Beeswax? Not moisturizing enough, dries out my lips worse than they were before. Lanolin? Tingles in the WORST way. After a lot of time playing around with different lip products, I have a good collection going to where I can blindly grab one and throw it into my bag with confidence when I’m in a rush. I gravitate to tinted lip balms because of their multifunctional nature, but I also love basic balms that give me that hydrated look and lip glosses that can leave a stain well after they wear off. These are my tried and true favorites for color payoff and/or hydration!

Solid vs. Cream: Bronzer Edition
Solid vs. Cream: Bronzer Edition
We are back with battle of the bronzers: cream vs. solid edition! Which one do I like? Which lasts longer? And which one works best for my skin type? I will answer all of these questions in my mini review! Let’s begin with some quick background information, I have oily combination skin and have a light to medium skin tone with a pink undertone. The first bronzer I am reviewing is the benefit - Hoola Quickie Contour Stick this retails for $24.00 (0.3 oz). Although it’s labeled as a contour product it can be used as a bronzer too. This cream product comes in a stick version making it super easy to apply to the specific parts of the face you wish to bronze up. It’s a cream to powder item that applies smooth and effortlessly. The con to this product is that it is only available in one shade (not really right for my complexion) and because it’s a cream based item, after a while it does get shiny from the oil of my face. You can definitely touch up throughout the day but it does make it bothersome to dab your face to make sure it does not look too oily and bronzed! I have the mini version which is a great way to see if you like it before comiting to the full size. Next is the Bésame COSMETICS - Peter Pan Golden Sand Bronzer Shell Compact a super amazing piece to have in your collection! It was limited edition and in the beginning retailed for $36.00 but I was able to get in sale for around $20.00. If you are able to find it now - run and get it because it’s so pretty! The bronzer is a soft matte shade that you can easily build up with a brush. You can probably tell that the mirror is missing but that’s because it fell and only the mirror shattered! I did a DIY with glitter card stock to fill in the empty space. I really am I fan of powder/solid bronzers because it goes well with my oily combo skin and I feel like my typical matte look lasts longer! My final verdict! I prefer my powder/solid bronzer because the shade looks good on my skin, not too brown and not too light. I like that it’s buildable and I can pick to go for a natural or more intense look. Tell me which type of bronzer do you prefer!
