A Take On the Classic

Classic Beauty never fades. That's why I always get starstruck whenever I watch those black and white films. I'm entranced by how sophisticated the girls looked. Their lovely curls never seem out of place and don't get me started on their makeup! Oh, those lips! I've always wanted to wear those really dark red lipsticks that sort of reminds you of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor (this list could go on and on and on... :D) but I was always shy and never liked drawing attention to myself and sporting really red lips won't help! Hahaha.. But that was back then. Now, I feel like I'm ready to go out with my red lippies on and just channel in Ms. Hepburn! :D When my cousin sent me a bunch of lipstick from Dubai, one shade caught my attention (you'll know what I'm talking about here) and I've been itching to get the chance to wear it ever since. Also, I've been watching Burlesque on my ipod over and over again so I'm really in the mood for the classics. So, I whipped out my lipsticks and decided to create a classic look I'm planning to do in an upcoming event atleast for now, I'd like to show you how it looks (with matching emote/posing like that of the old hollywood glamour shots..hehehe).

I winged my eyeliner to match all the drama. Just minimal makeup and contouring to make the bone structure stand out in black and white.

And with some photoshop magic, I was transported back to the classics! :D

Are you also a sucker for old Hollywood drama? ;D


  1. very pretty! :) i love classic looks eg. the bombshell look too! =)

  2. Thanks Sugar! :D There's just something about red lipsticks that once we girls wear it, we feel instantly empowered. No wonder superman sports a red and blue costume..hahaha.. :D

  3. Charles!Thanks! Uy Congrats nga pla on winning the Nude palette sa Digital Traincase. :D And yeah Red lip rocks!Too bad we didn't get to talk much sa Clinique party, I was, once again overcome by shyness :D
