Hey dolls! Today I’m excited to announce the first post in a series called “Vintage Holiday" with Mary Kay, highlighting some hot holiday trends in style and beauty! At the holiday shoot for an advertorial in Glamour, Allure and SELF, I had the chance to collaborate with Mary Kay on three throwback looks. For the first, Flapper Chic, we ended up with such fun footage from on set, I couldn’t wait to try my own interpretation of 1920s decadence!
The magic of the holidays really provides such a great opportunity to bring your inspirations to life. It’s a time of year that is rich in tradition, so digging into the past for style and beauty inspiration just feels right. The modern update on “The Great Gatsby” this past year brought the Jazz Era back to life in the most colorful way. I’m guilty of watching the movie over and over and am taken by the glitz, glitter, freedom and optimism that defined that moment in time. Women were shedding their previous restrictions and expressing their freedom in all areas of fashion, beauty, music and entertainment. Waistlines dropped, skirts got shorter, and color was infused to reflect the vibrancy of life.
For my beauty look, I wanted it to feel strong and sultry, yet colorful and vibrant. For me, infusing color doesn’t have to be too bold. I concentrated on doing a smoky eye with a combination of the Tuxedo Baked Eye Trio pot and this rich Copper Glow mineral shadow that brought in the pink tones in the look. All of these shadows have a subtle sparkle to them, which highlights your features and attracts the light for a glowing complexion. I put the silvery shadow from Tuxedo in the corners of my eyes to make them pop and used the Facial Highlighting pen on my cheekbones and under my brows. This is the time of year that you really want to shine!
