Ready for some Old Hollywood makeup? I’ve been into the style ever since I dressed as Marilyn Monroe for Halloween (admittedly I did not pull it off as well as Debby Ryan did Marilyn).
This year, I went as Dottie Hinson (the spitfire girl ballplayer played by Geena Davis from A League of Their Own) since I was determined to stay a redhead for Halloween. Dottie’s makeup is Old Hollywood, but a little rougher and dirtier since she likes to play in the clay. I kicked her simpler look up a notch cause, well, I’m not playing baseball outside.
Here’s the video with my usual touch of humor and complete lack of class:
Vanessa Hudgens, who once played Gabriella in the Disney hit that just won’t quit High School Musical, has since gone down the now well-traveled track of Disney stars and become a much more risque character. She told InStyle which products kept her in the hearts of tweens everywhere, and which ones now keep her in the minds of their male counterparts.
Vanessa lovesRodial Glam, which adds dewiness from head to toe.
Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Foundation is the liquid version of Maybelline’s Bare Escentuals-esque mineral powder foundation. I tried it in Light Beige, and I have to say that the shade bordered a bit on orange-y. My skin has warm yellow undertones so I’m not exactly complaining, but who’s heard of an orangey beige?
This SPF 18 foundation offers an on-the-fence type of coverage, definitely not sheer and definitely not full. While it seemed to mask minor discoloration like dark undereye circles well, my blemishes showed right through, so plan on using a concealer in conjunction with this baby if you’ve got zits.
The mineral makeup craze is booming – so much so that even our drugstore pals Maybelline couldn’t help but get in on the action! Let’s try out the new rating system on Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer.
For a drugstore product, I was very impressed with this concealer’s coverage. This baby blotted out my dark undereye circles with the greatest of ease!
