FOTD: 1950s dress code

Hi gorgeous people,

Hope you're having a nice Sunday....my plan for today is to do NOTHING!

I picked up some cookery books last week while on holiday so I might use my hubby as a guinea pig once again tonight. 
We'll see. :-P

But yesterday was a different thing. It was fun and exiting as we had a birthday party to attend in one of the most fun and entertaining bowling allies/ nightclub featuring the 50s and 60s.

I fully went for the theme and took out my most precious and expensive original 1950s vintage dress from my vintage clothes collection.
I also have a white petticoat that goes with it and makes the skirt huge but it was a bit over the top so I didn't use it.

Of course I did 1950s make up and hair :-P

This was my look:

The dress:





look at Willow's ears right at the bottom on the right side :-P

Shoes:
These are actually my wedding shoes!
Don't use them much but I love them.

And the make up and hair:

Just a simple 50s eyes with a bright red lip.

I did what I could with my hair. 
It was one of those days when you have an imagine in your mind of what your hair style will look like but it turns out completely different...very annoying.
But I was happy with the result  although it looks a bit messy with some slight frizz due to doing it hundred times until I was happy with it.
In the process of doing my hair I fell in love with a new hair spray.
 I will show it to you soon. 
It has the most super super super brilliant hold!




Unfortunately, because of my hooded eyes I can't pull off a good 50s winged eyeliner but I did what I could with what I have.



For foundation: I used a mixture of ColorStay and Photoready and I set it with some powder.

For the eyes: I used a cream e/s all over the lid and very light browns to define the crease. All the colours were from my Inglot palette so I don't know the numbers.

As eyeliner I used my trusted black Kroylan cake eyeliner mixed with the sealing gel by Illamasqua. This combo is the best I tried, tested and assessed for a long lasting effect.

For the lips: I used a mixture of two lip liners: one from Barry M (number 25 I think) and a more orange one  from Kiko.

I hope you liked it.

Take care.
