Since I grew up with parents from this era (you know ..those PINUP doll pix that our servicemen kept) ...anyhow ..I thought this would be a great DARE!

Let's have it gals....should be an easy one!

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.

Here's some inspiration...from Madonna's Vogue! I'll try to look for pics!!

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?

Re: Dare to Be - 40's/50's Bombshell Babes! August 8th - August 21st

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

Here's some pinup pics I found for inspiration. Have fun!

Pink Ribbons, this challenge will look so cute on you because of your dark hair and fair skin.

I have some old pics (couple of months old) from a similar thing I did on a private board I belong to. I can't find my bigger verison of the smaller pic I posted here. The full color, large one is not photoshopped.

Very nice job, simplykrazy07 and DawnE!! What products did you guys use??

I found a pic of Kate Beckinsale from the movie "Pearl Harbor" (takes place in 40's) and a list of products the makeup artist used. I thought this might be interesting..

Kate Beckinsale in Pearl Harbor
Make-up by Julie Hewett
Skin Care
- Amanda Lacey Skin Care
Foundation - Gerda Spillmann Bio-Fond Cream in Limelight and Top Chic
Concealer - Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat
Powder - Il Makiage Professional Powder in Neutre Clair #1
Cheeks - Stila Cheek Color in Fade
Eye Shadow - Christian Dior Palette #030
Eye Liner - M.A.C Crème Liner in Black
Lash - Lancôme Aquacils Mascara in Black. Individual lashes were applied to complete the look.
Lips - Frederic Fekkai Lipstick in Brick

Re: Dare to Be - 40's/50's Bombshell Babes! August 8th - August 21st

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.

Aw Trisha..

We can always do a Beauty In Time in a few weeks time and you can do your 1920's look then! Plus we've never done 40/50's on MakeUpTalk and some of our members might not be part of other communities. BTW, where are we gonna find pics for the 1920's one!!

Well done to Truehugswait, Dawne & simplykrazy07 on jumping right in. Fantastic jobs girls

I didn't do red lips and champagne shadow but I can redo or bow out if anyone feels that my pics are inappropriate. I do enjoy making up and it would be fun to do again. I was just sharing some that I had and I thought fit the bill.

Oh No Trisha,...I wanna see you do a 50's look...you're so talented! C'mon, please ???

Ok... this is only like the 3rd time using the new cam, and If I'm on page 15 in the manual I'm lucky... lol So they aren't perfect yet, but you get the idea (it's an 8mp cam, so any blurryness is something I did wrong! lol)

Hope I got the "look" right!

I used:
MOD Cosmetics shadow in a champagne/gold color
MAC Powerpoint Liner in Engraved
Ulta Blush in Sun Kissed
Oil Of Olay Total Effects Lipstick in Flame
