How about these? Gwen Stefani in the likes of Jean Harlow (starring in the movie The Aviator). It's hard to find colour pictures of the 40's - 50''s Bombshells.

Greta Garbo, and Monroe
Deitrich and DiMaggio
Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean
On the cover of a magazine

Grace Kelly
; Harlow, Jean
Picture of a beauty queen
Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire
Ginger Rogers, dance on air

They had style, they had grace
Rita Hayworth gave good face
Lauren, Katherine, Lana too
Bette Davis, we love you

Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it

Here are some more, but it the makeup itself seems alone the same lines! It's the hair that's the distinguishing characteristic of the decades. Red lips seem to be the key. Can we also use modern bombshell type icons?

I dunno - I actually think it's a little easier with the decades given.... so we all have similar looks to judge on... ya know? It's kinda hard to judge something 50's glam, then 80's punk in the same dare, no?? I'm up for whatever though... just let me know, and away I go Posted Image

Let's see...
If I recall correctly,
Loreal True Match base,
Maybelline Everfresh concealer under the eyes,
Loreal Lash Architect mascara,
Revlon blush in Wine with Everything,
Loreal Glam Shine Gloss in Whirl
Prestige Shadow Duo in Stormy.
So, it's a drugstore face, I almost always buy drugstore products.
Lily, Kate is so beautiful! I have never worn brick red lipstick. Maybe I should give it a try. It looks great on simplekrazy, too. Posted Image
