This was meant to be a tutorial on how to create that perfect Vintage look, however, my hair was less than cooperative. I did manage to get big bouncy curls, so let’s call it a more modern vintage look? Either way I definitely get points for trying. I was recently contacted my Voodoo Vixen who sell the most beautiful vintage dresses at really affordable prices, I was over the moon until I saw that they only catered for 6-16, which I am definitely not. However, I soon discovered that they are launching a plus size range and I’m beyond excited for that! But for now, I wanted to create a Voodoo Vixen Look with their beautiful Hudson Bag, £24.99*. To create this failed look I used my Babyliss Heated Rollers, also known as little round demons that burn your hands, and just tease my hair in places to make it bigger and fluffier.
As I don’t own too many vintage styled outfits or items, I decided to modernise it with my favourite Leopard Print Jacket from Yours Clothing*, £30 in a 20 (you can get £10 off it with code: BLOGGER3). A green chiffon vest from Newlook, 22, I’m not sure on the price of it, as it’s no longer on the site. With my trusted George at Asda Black Maxi Skirt with Pockets (everybody loves a good pocket), this is a 20 and is only £10! I’m also wearing my Yours Clothing butterfly belt to bring everything in and keep it in place.I feel like the colours were very Voodoo Vixen as they have the most incredible dresses in green and leopard print.
My Dad turned 50 this week, so we were heading off out for a birthday meal!
On my face I decided to go for a classic vintage look of a light cut crease, fluttery lashes, strong brow and eyeliner with a reddish lip. I used:
Smashbox Photofinish Primer
MAC Studio Fix NW10
Collection Pressed Powder
MAC Mineralise Skin Finish to contour
Max Factor Natural Glow Blush
Anastasia Brow Pomade in Chocolate
Red Cherry Lashes
Envyderm Lip Treatment
Envyderm Rose Bleu Lip Gloss
MAC cool palette for eyeshadows
This picture makes me want Roses everywhere.
Voodoo Vixen will be absolutely amazing in Plus Size so be sure to keep and eye out so you don’t miss anything!
