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.

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.

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..

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.
