Inspiration: Old-Hollywood Beauty
Published Mar 31, 2012
Hollywood screen sirens are beauty inspiration for many, with classic staples such as red lips, bold brows, and perfectly coiffed locks making a major comeback in recent years. But these looks aren’t just for the red carpet—more and more Beauties are choosing period-inspired makeup for special events and everyday wear. The Beautylish community has certainly embraced this trend, and we’ve spotted some amazing vintage makeup and products inspired by the era.
Viola H.’s defined brow and sexy cat eye look stunning against a flawless complexion. She combines these old Hollywood's favorites into her look, but keeps it modern with a bold fuchsia lip.

Deep side parts and waves are a red-carpet favorite (think Veronica Lake!), and we're obsessed with Sara A.'s scarlet take on the look. While this ‘do does mean a dedication to detail and perfection, Sara proves that a little effort is worth it.
We love how Claudia P. gave her retro fundamentals a spunky edge. By deepening a traditional cat eye to a sultry smoky one and using burgundy lipstick rather than a classic red, she looks like a modern day, vampy Grace Kelly.
