19 Aug Review: Besame Cosmetics Creates Old Hollywood Retro Glam Makeup! Apricot Cream Rouge, Lipstick, Cake Mascara
Everyone nowadays wants that Old Hollywood look. And it’s usually always achieved (or attempted at least) on the red carpet with fashion experts exhausting the phrase to describe a red lip or elongated cat-eye. The term bores me, mainly because no one has really nailed the Old Hollywood look (in my biased opinion), especially with modern day makeup. But if you ever really, and I mean really, want to create a vintage look with no time machine required, let me steer you towards Besame Cosmetics.
The Best Orange, Coral, Red & Tangerine Lipstick, Gloss Shades For Every Skintone – Old Hollywood Inspired
Developing cosmetics from lipsticks to rouge, this is THE brand that has all the sought-after pigments from the 1920’s (when bright raspberry rouge was muted with powder) to the 1950’s (where full, lined lip peaks were ravaging in red). Not only is the quality there, but so is the packaging (chrysanthemum motifs aplenty) and appeal (simply adorable and delicate). The brand understands the film industry’s fascination with the vintage aesthetic, and are usually on hand to provide the perfect colors and formulas for that authentic seal of approval, as seen in the movie The Artist and the Bonnie & Clyde mini series.
If you’re completely new to the vintage-inspired brand, then let’s take a look at some of the key items we’re obsessing over!
What’s any old-timey look without some good old fashioned rouge — that deeply pigmented pot ‘o color that your grandma probably still uses way too much of (but you love her for it!). Apricot Cream Rouge is packaged in a stunning vintage reproduction tin, filled with a concentrated cream that give lips and cheeks a natural, weightless flush, and blends beautifully into any skintone. Apply the formula straight from the tin with your ring finger using light patting motions.
No more guessing how to create that Old Hollywood classic red lip. The Besame Red Lipstick is a true red with a cooler, blue-toned base for a brighter smile. The blunt tip was designed for an easy application, and the golden bullet case screams retro. You’ll achieve that semi-matte finish with full coverage in just one swipe. The creamy formula is enriched with squalene, vitamin C and aloe. These shades aren’t just representations, they’re the real deal in vintage color.
Smooth, matte complexions were all the rage back then. Besame Violet Brightening Powder is a translucent violet powder that brightens any skintone. The finely milled formula sets makeup beautifully, leaving a soft, matte finish and a subtle violet fragrance. Wear it alone, over foundation or around the eyes to instantly lighten dark circles.
To get those ultra-lush lashes so thick, no liner was needed, all the glamazons used cake mascara. Besame Cake Mascara beautifies lashes and brows by making them appear longer, darker, more luxuriant. To use, simply wet the spooley brush in the case, dip in the Black or Brown color and apply to lashes; you can even use it as liner for those cat-eyes!
So, if you’re ready to get that Old Hollywood look, get the real deal with products that pay homage to that glamorous era, where every woman could pull off red lipstick and complexions were as pristine and silk. www.besamecosmetics.com
