• Beauty Tutorial: Vintage Look With a Modern Twist

    Vintage Beauty Tutorial | Photos by Cassandra Photo; Hair & Styling by Maritza Buelvas; Makeup by Brenda Arelano I don’t often share beauty tutorials on the blog, but I do love them, so when Maritza Buelvas sent this my way I thought you might love it too. While this can help you recreate your own Mad Men-inspired look with a modern edge for your wedding day, you could also use it for a date night, school dance, as a bridesmaid, or for a fun night out with the girls. You don’t have to be a bride-to-be to try it out! Here are Maritza’s styling tips for creating your own Mad Men inspired beauty look, complete with a step-by-step tutorial.

    I recommend pairing Old Hollywood or vintage styles with modern staples for the ultimate bombshell look. Try the following look, two ways – keep things simple without any hair accessories or top things off with a slinky head chain for extra sultriness.

    Here are a few beauty tips and product suggestions for re-creating a Mad Men inspired look with a modern edge.

    {Hair}

    Step One: Curl long hair to mold hair and allow for pinning up into a faux bob.

    Step Two: Tease at the crown, sides, nape and front to create volume and apply spray to set curls. Pin horizontal curled sections downwards towards the nape of the neck and set curl in place with pins tucked in criss cross position. This criss cross motion allows for hair not to move since you are creating a faux bob. Pin curls around the entire head using this same technique.

    Step Three: Tease at ends to create volume and hold where need be. Add holding spray. Add a touch of trendy glam by incorporating a head chain (if desired) or wear without.

    Step Four: Create a nude lid by blending dainty pinks and highlighting the crease with matte taupe eyeshadow

    Step Five: Apply false lashes, soft pink blush and matte pink lipstick in your favorite shade.
