Retro inspirations Part I - Old school glam look

Good evening ladies!
I've been away for a couple of days, but I've been gathering material that I want to show you.
First up is the Old school glam look.
Read on...
Since I made my BONDI "Horny Mistress" mani (blog post about it - HERE) I decided to start off the week with 2 retro looks in two consecutive days.
The first one is a bit more rigorous look, but absolutely glamorous one. 
I am a huge fan of DitaVonTeese and her style, respectively of all the glam from the 30s, so I love doing such looks. Also my whole look "type" is Winter type, meaning I have pale skin, dark hair and dark eyes (think Snow White haha), so such looks appeal to me a lot. 
Now on the look itself. Below you'll find listed all the products I used: 
  • AVON BB Cream in "Shell" 
  • MeMeMe Beat the blues illuminator
  • DitaVonTeese for ArtDeco transparent powder (oh, how I love it!)
  • INGLOT neutral eyeshadow
  • Maybelline eyeliner pencil in Black
  • Maybelline Flasies mascara in Black
  • Rimmel brow pencil in dark brown
  • Sephora Lipstick in blood red color 


The earrings I wore are a gift from my dad for my birthday this year. They also have a very delicate necklace with them, but with the top I wore it wouldn't have fitted the look. 
As for the hair I did the Freckled Fox Ballerina Bun (tutorial HERE), but you can see that there are some flyaways,because my hair is shorter in front and longer at the back, so its kinda inevitable. Anyway I love Emily's tutorials, always thorough and always very well explained.
