Pin Up Makeup

by easyNeon 

Ah, yes. the classic pin-up girl look that launched a thousand bright red lip shades. This looks comes with a defined brow shape, thick winged liner, and bold red lips. You may have to over-line your lips a bit for a sharp cupid's bow. Finish it off with a dash of contour and feel all glammed-up throughout the day! 

Soft Vintage Makeup Tutorial

If you're looking for inspiration on which wedding makeup look to sport, try this one for a change. It's soft and all blurred-out, and includes wispy lashes and warm neutral shades for both the eyes and lips. This is the perfect look for those who prefer to go on the soft side while still making a statement by incorporating a dash of vintage in their look.

Spring Makeup Tutorial | Retro Mint & Pink

Another retro-inspired look is the pink and mint colour combination. The best thing about this look is how the warm browns accentuate the bright aqua shade, for eyes that pop. Complemented with a glossy pink lip, this look will surely make the crowd give you a long second look. 

Vintage Makeup Tutorial - Classic 1930's Look 

by Make-up Designory 

Here's a hardcore 1930's look that will either make you cringe or swoon when you see what the makeup artist did with the model's eyebrows. See how long, thin, and fine that is? Well, you be the judge if you think that will work for you. Nonetheless, this is an inspiring tutorial for those makeup geeks and vintage fanatics at heart. 

Vintage 70's/30's style Make-up

by Lisa Eldridge 

Last but not the least is this Biba makeup look from makeup expert and vintage makeup collector, Lisa Eldridge. We love the dolled-up eyes, ultra wispy lashes, rosebud lips, sickly blush (yes, that's a makeup trend too), and of course, the colourful eye makeup look. If you have bright shades around, time to put them to use for a fun makeup session with your friends!



With today’s fast paced lifestyle and exposure to environmental aggressors, I keep myself healthy and strong by incorporating a daily morning routine into my lifestyle. It’s easy and I reap the benefits all day long. 

My morning routine consists of light yoga. I have recently picked up yoga because of the health benefits I have heard. From increased strength to flexibility to heart health, there are so many benefits to rolling out the mat. Due to my busy schedule, I do yoga at home. Studies have proven that women who exercise in the morning sleep better at night. I totally agree!

After the yoga session, I would then detox with a cup of lemon water. Lemons are packed with nutrients, including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. Lemon juice can be hard on the enamel of your teeth hence it’s important to dilute it with water of any temperature. I drink it first thing in the morning, and then wait 15 to 30 minutes to have breakfast. I usually get my breakfast fix of muesli or fruits. 

Besides keeping fit and having sufficient nutrients intake, it is essential to have a morning beauty routine, which is why I incorporated Estée Lauder’s latest Nutritious Vitality8 Collection comprising of the Radiant Dual-Phase Emulsion and Radiant Moisture Crème into my daily skincare routine. Packed with all the goodness of Pomegranate, I was so excited when I got hold of the range. Besides tasting so good, are you aware of the benefits this wonder fruit has? Being a nutrient dense, antioxidant rich fruit, it is known as a symbol of health, fertility and eternal life. It not only lowers both blood pressure and cholesterol, it is also believed to relieve or protect against depression and osteoporosis too. Health benefits aside, it is also good for the skin. It helps to hydrate dry skin, combat inflammation from acne breakouts, protect against sun and environment and last but not least stimulate collagen production. 

For mornings, my favorite products to use are the Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Dual-Phase Emulsion (S$92) and the Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Moisture Crème (S$92). As both are similar moisturizers with different textures, I alternate the usage on different days. 

The Radiant Moisture Crème comes in a plastic tub with a screw off cap. There is also a seal to keep the cream fresh. The light consistency of the cream enables the cream to be fully absorbed into the skin within seconds without that sticky or greasy texture. I was able to apply makeup immediately after. The Radiant Dual-Phase Emulsion on the other hand had a texture very similar to water because it’s so light! I was particularly drawn to the sweet smelling fragrance of both products. 

In addition, it actually gave my skin the radiance and brightening effect it required without compromising on hydration. I used this after returning from my Hong Kong trip where I became a lot darker and surprisingly I went back to my original skin tone probably even fairer than before. It helped vastly with the sun burnt situation on my neck as well. 

If you aren’t convinced yet, you should! According to Estée Lauder, 100% of women who used these products said their skin felt softer and looked more energized in just 8 days. What’s your morning routine like? Tell us your secrets!
