HOLIDAY GLAM: THE DOLCE VITA BY ANNA DE LEON

Hi Guys :) November is coming to a close and the festive month of December is upon us. I am sure that your social calendars are slowly filling up with Christmas parties to attend but I do hope that we all will not forget the reason for the season :)

Let me start the Holiday Season Looks Series with this look inspired by the cover that Kirsten Stewart did for W magazine. This was photographed by  Mert Alas & Marcus Piggot and the Make Up was beautifully done by Lucia Pieroni.

This look evokes Vintage Glam inspired by beauty icons of the past like Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot with the emphasis being on the Feline Flick. Let me walk you through the products that used to recreate the look :) Hope you all like this. 


YOU CAN SPORT THIS LOOK WITH VAVAVOOM HAIR. WORK SOME VOLUMNIZING HAIR MOUSSE ON THE ROOTS OF YOUR HAIR, TIP OVER AND DRY AS USUAL. IF YOU HAVE MORE TIME DIVIDE YOUR HAIR INTO 8 SECTIONS AND USE BIG VELCRO ROLLERS FOR THAT SEXY, TOUCHABLE VICTORIA'S SECRET ANGEL HAIR
ANOTHER GREAT HAIRSTYLE TO PAIR THIS LOOK WITH IS WITH A MESSY FRENCH TWIST. RED CARPET HAIR DOESNT MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO BE A HELMET HEAD, HAIR STILL HAS TO BE TOUCHABLE. :)


 THIS IS THE ACTUAL PHOTO OF KIRSTEN'S W MAGAZINE COVER. 

ALWAYS START YOUR MAKE UP APPLICATION WITH A CLEAN, TONED AND MOISTURISED FACE. I WILL POST MY SKINCARE ROUTINE AS WELL.
