I finally installed a Google friend connect container over on the there. If you choose Google friend connect to the blogger “follow” option or an rss feed, please check that out. Readers, I just love vintage makeup. I really only wear makeup in the 1940s style, as the majority of my friends and family can tell you.
It’s easy, requires about five minutes, and looks super cute. Here, let me share today’s makeup look with you via cell phone picture. I call today’s look saucy secretary, though in actuality I am not just a secretary. Enjoy the 1990s computer monitor behind me there. See, I’m so retro. Even at the office. Yes, those are natural beauty marks (evidence), but I still like to highlight them with just a little coal. Makes me feel very Marilyn.
Maybe even dual Marilyn? It’s still funny to me okay! And that means you can imagine how much I love watching tutorials and reading blogs about classic make-up and styling. Before week the blogging world has been blessed with some fabulous articles. Lisa at Snoodlebug offered us a great little background lesson about shows and manicures off her fantastic fingernails. I love vintage manicures, though I admit I hate doing them myself.
So hard to get those little peasants at the bottom right. Fleur at Diary of an antique Girl gave us a fabulous video tutorial about creating that scrumptious 1940s lip. You may remember Fleur as the model from my post about Besame lipcolor. Beauty is a Thing of the Past shared this neat article from 1938. Just, what a pretty hairstyle I considered to myself, I sure wish I had fashioned the patience to create this up.
Maybe I’ll take action similar for the marriage. Or maybe I simply have a stylist take action for me. I love that plan better. Couture Allure told us all about buying vintage stockings. I’m a stocking killer. So that as a wrap up I’m going to tell everyone the first formal piece of my Wedding Ensemble.

But the Beast only shook its mind. And off it stalked in a rage. However, a little later, it returned and spoke to the girl solemnly. Beauty threw herself at the Beast’s feet in delight. In reality, the merchant acquired fallen ill from a damaged center at knowing his little girl was being kept prisoner.
When he embraced her again, he was soon on the path to recovery. Beauty stayed beside him for hours at a time, describing her life at the Castle, and explaining that the Beast was good and kind really. The entire days flashed past, and finally the merchant was able to leave his bed.
He was completely well again. Beauty was happy at last. However, she experienced failed to notice that seven days had gone by. Then one night she woke from an awful problem. She had dreamt that the Beast was calling and dying on her behalf, twisting in agony. The solemn promise she got made drove her to leave home immediately.
She rushed up the stairs, phoning, but there is no reply. Her center in her mouth, Beauty ran into the garden and crouched the Beast there, its eye shut, as though dead. Beauty threw herself at it and firmly hugged it. At these words, a miracle took place. The Beast’s ugly snout changed magically into the face of the handsome son. The wedding took place after and quickly, from that day on, the young Prince would have only roses in his gardens. So in retrospect, to this day, the castle is known as the Castle of the Rose.
