Another accidental find has made me smile. I was reading some lovely love stories for your (and mine!) Sunday post, when I found true little gem.
I have never mentioned my strong dislike toward "inspired by" makeup tutorials, have I? The truth is, with so many "inspired by", you lose the sight of what a true makeup looked like in the days gone by. To find a page like this one; a true vintage magazine page; and to be able to see what the ladies of the day truly looked up when they wanted to cover/enhance something.. feels rather good.
There are many, many girls out there who mimic vintage "in their own way". I am, for one, not interested in mimicking, since this little blog of mine is a place where I gather (and show) history; not "my own version" of it. (not that there's anything wrong with being inspired!) But, with this blogoshpere of our so saturated by imitations, I fear that one will ache too much while fishing for the "true" vintage look.
I'm glad I've found this page.
Someone might find it funny, comical and an act of amateurism - however this is IT, the original. This is "the" advice the girls saw in their favorite magazine.
What are your opinions on "inspired by"?
Do you find it hard(er) to find the true look?
