Trend To Try: Rockin’ Out In The Fifties

GO back in time to the best in beauty.

IN an era where pretty much everything has been done to death when it comes to hair and make-up, we’re at a stage where we look back to the past for future inspiration. This week we look at the signature red lip of the fifties that you can wear with confidence today.

MATTE. Velvet. Shiny. Whichever finish you choose for your red lip, it will definitely be a throwback to the old school diner, drive-in movie and Elvis Presley era. By now everyone should have their signature shade of red down pat. If you don’t, get testing! There are tons of lippies to choose from: balms, glosses, sticks, liners, crayons…the choices are endless! Keep in mind that if you want to make a statement with a bright red hue, a lip liner is mandatory.
