It has been a fun goal of mine to compose a post filled with makeup looks from each decade. This has taken me quite some time to complete, and I'm very excited to FINALLY put this all together. I can't tell you how much fun I've had :-)
For this post, I'm stepping back a moment from the usual "beauty makeup", and exploring makeup throughout the ages. I have selected an icon from each decade, and created a look inspired by that icon. You'll see that I've selected some unexpected icons (or maybe not) for this project :-)
It's been a blast.
Oh! And I realize I don't share the same facial structure of each of my icons. :-( However, I worked with my own features and created something truly inspired by the era.
