    When someone says ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’ I think of bold red lipstick, winged eyeliner, big curly hair and lots of drama. It’s a classic look that never really goes out of style and it’s perfect for parties, red carpet events, weddings or just whenever you feel like being ultra glamorous – which for me is quite often. The other day I was shopping at Costco and the guy serving me asked, “So are you going out somewhere?” and I said, “No, I’m just going back home.” He seemed a bit surprised and I found that amusing. In today’s modern western world it feels as though one has to have a good reason to dress up or to look glamorous, as if it’s an indulgence or a sin to look nice. But really, does there have to be a reason? I simply enjoy the process of getting ‘glammed up’ because it’s a creative outlet and I get to enjoy all the nice things in my wardrobe and makeup kit. I find that if I keep waiting for a big event before I allow myself to get dressed up then I’ll rarely enjoy the things I own – what a waste! So I say, get dressed up and wear whatever you feel like just for the joy of it. Life’s too short, so introduce a bit of glamour into everyday.

    I hardly wear lipgloss these days but when I created this makeup look my lipstick looked a bit flat, so I added some red KIKO lip gloss and – KABOOM – my look was complete. I’ve fallen in love with lipgloss all over again! I decided to stack 2 pairs of Ardell Demi Wispies eyelashes to get a more dramatic look and I kinda like it. Hmm,….I just might wear this makeup look on my next grocery shopping trip, LOL!
