Back to 50s Look
If I could get back in time for a summer, I would love to live a 50’s summer. But until the time machine is invented, I can only bring the 50’s in the NOW and enjoy a Back to 50’s Look 😊
Oh the glorious 1950’s! Was there ever a more enchanting period of time? You all know I adore the 1950’s. It had everything – the ball gown, the gloves, the pale skin, perfect hair and red lips! And don’t forget about the sparkling jewelry. Stunning.
For my 1950’s outfit, I decided to wear my favourite vintage dress. Isn’t it gorgeous? The shoes are Zara but they look like they’ve been transported straight from the 50’s 😻
The 1950s make-up look was a fun one to recreate. While it’s mostly based on a woman’s natural beauty the eyebrows are shaped into a nice arch, the eyes exaggerated with the iconic wingtip and lips soft and full.
The 1950s hair was traditionally worn short to medium in ladies over 20-years-old. Very short, cropped hairstyles were fashionable in the 1950’s and hats were worn less and less frequently. Plenty of ladies frequented the Poodle hairstyle – named so because of the tight, voluminous curls similar to that of a poodle – and the fabulous beehive style also became extremely popular. I went for a soft glamorous style, but kept the big curls 🌟
