Fabulous Fifties rockabilly inspired look

Remember I was going to a vintage party last Sunday? Well I did manage to take a few pics, but lighting was horrible, so I only have a few to show you. So here it is, without further ado: my 1950s inspired hair, make up and outfit.

Completed look

Excuse the vacuum cleaner! haha

Hair & make up

Here’s what I’m wearing:

Make up:

Face: Missha BB cream in no. 13 Bright Beige, Collection Long Lasting Perfection concealer in no1 fair, MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium, Physician’s Formula Happy Booster in Warm

Brows: Benefit Highbrow pencil in medium, HEMA clear brow gel.

Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MAC Paintpot in Painterly, The Bodyshop eyeshadow in no 13, Essence Waterproof felt tip liner, White kohl pencil on waterline by Chanel, Maybelline the Falsies Feather in black

Lips: MAC Russian Red


  • 50s inspired floral sundress (Topshop)
  • Black tulle skirt (worn as petticoat) (H&M)
  • Charcoal grey low heeled mary jane pumps (Sacha)
  • Red polka dot scarf (H&M)

For my hair I used the following tutorial by CherryDollFace:

My hair and especially my bangs are a fair bit longer than hers and to top it off I had washed my hair the morning of the party. That’s why on the first close up pictures the curl is much tighter: that was my trial run and I did that on ‘dirty’ hair. It allowed me to make the curl a lot tighter and it came out much better, but oh well. Can’t have it all right?

That’s it, my 1950s look. What do you think?

      Dankjewel. Soms denk ik dat ik beter gewoon in retro looks door het leven zou moeten gaan.

        Goeie, maar aangezien ik voor de klas sta is er een limiet aan wat geoorloofd is.
