Vintage Makeover // 40-50’s Edition


vintage makeover

After asking my Instagram followers which they would prefer, a Vintage Makeover or a Day In The Life video, the votes were too close to call, but this one was speaking to me so much, I couldn’t resist. I took the day and gave myself a vintage makeover! I did my hair special and the makeup to achieve this look! It was loads of fun and I hope you enjoy the video as well as the pictures I took in sub-freezing temps. . . you’re welcome.

  1. What a great makeover. You look so pretty. You are photogenic. I would love to see a Victorian makeover. Congratulations on a job well done.


  2. Love love love this post!! I think my favorite time period is 40-50s. Life was so simple back then. And the ladies dressed so pretty and feminine!!
