Beauty trends have been emerging and re-emerging as day to day life evolves, here are 9 vintage beauty trends that have made comebacks recently.      

Graphic eyeliner 

The 1960’s graphic eyeliner by Cher is an iconic look that has been recreated over the decades. To recreate this look, KVD’s Tattoo Pencil Liner Waterproof Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner for $22 is a great option as there are 10 different colours to choose from. 

To recreate this look paired with Cher inspired brows, the Lady Me Brow Stamp is the perfect product for natural looking brows to complete the look. 

Pinching the Cheeks for Blush

Pinching the cheeks for a natural blush has been passed on as a beauty tip throughout generations of women, and still features in natural or no-makeup makeup tutorials. Although this vintage beauty trend works, it is only temporary. For a longer lasting blush, the blush in the Mellow Cosmetics Stardust Glow Palette is a perfect natural shade for medium to dark sin tones. The palette also comes with highlighter and bronzer.  

Red Lipstick

Lips were a strong feature of 1950s makeup, with red shades being the most popular lipstick colour choice. Red lipstick came in many shades, from the deeper blue-based colours through to lighter orange-based ones. The red lip look has no doubt made a comeback as it is once again super popular because it is an iconic, classic way to elevate and brighten up any makeup look. 

Gwen Stefani wears red lipstick religiously, to recreate her look, the Natio Matte Lip Colour Lipstick in the shade Beauty is perfect. To read more about which lipsticks are also great for recreating Gwen Stefani’s iconic red lipstick look, click HERE

The KE Gro Mascara is natural, cruelty free and packed with peptides, natural extracts and collagen, which all deliver essential nutrients to the eyelashes. 

Natural Looking Brows 

In the 1940s, a more natural, thicker brow with a defined shape came into vogue thanks to icons like Rita Hayworth. Natural, thick brows are now back in style with procedures such as brow laminations being done to create a full brow look. Read about why a brow lamination is a game changer for your brows HERE

Sun Kissed Cheeks

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, supermodel Janice Dickinson influenced the more natural look of sun kissed cheeks, rather than wearing bold makeup looks. This look is easily recreated with Benefit’s Floratint, that can be applied to the lips and cheeks for a stunning sun kissed look. 

Berry Coloured Lips 

Lipstick became popular in the 1920’s, with red being the most popular choice. Other than red, berry coloured lips were also very popular as it created a darker, more bold lipstick look.
