besame girls are glamorous girls...Miss L Fire, a UK based vintage inspired footwear company, held a 1940s makeup demo at their store in Hollywood. I attended this event two months ago but still thought it was worth sharing with you all! It was a fun time--complete with snacks, fabulous goodie bags, and a chance to chat with the creators of Besame and Miss L Fire!
I am always raving about my Besame gems here on the blog. If you haven't used Besame products, I highly suggest that you do! They are a family-owned company and have extremely high standards for their products and ingredients. The cosmetics are used in film and photography, and held to be a high performing product by industry-recognized makeup artists. For all you die-hard vintage fans, Besame directly reproduces colors from specific years in history to ensure an authentic look. I tried to link up as many of the products I could, so you can check them out!
(Apologies for the grainy phone pics, my camera died!)The makeup demo was presented by the Besame girls, Cristina demonstrating on Shirley as the model. Cristina was very thorough and demonstrated how to achieve an authentic 1940s look with Besame cosmetics.
