It is the argument these days….is vintage back? I went to an art show this summer in LA.  In the lofts of the “warehouse district” where people literally live in their studios.  In the show they opened up all the studios to strangers walking through gazing  at their latest pieces posted on their walls.  In every loft we went in….vintage , vintage , vintage.  Old TV’s, not the newest “latest” flat screens.  Quaint kitchen tables, boxy couches, turn tables (not I Pods), retro vases….everywhere we turned objects appeared as if beamed up from the set of Bye Bye Birdie. What has gotten me thinking about this? Glossa did a photo shoot Wednesday and the model was dressed as Ann Margret.  She fit the role so well. I just did a few simple things to help get her into character.  I Filled in her brows to be full and dark.  I added faux lashes to thicken the lash line.  Shaded the lid to contour the eye in a subtle way and added a thick winged liner.  I vamped up the lips and popped the apples of her cheeks.  Full with “Ann Margret” style wig and all she transformed into the sultry “old Hollywood” star.  I loved it. If Vintage is coming back in out home decor, our clothes, whats next …hair and make up? In this make up artists opinion, I hope so.  The Audry and Jackie O eye and lip is timeless.  I love it.
