Transformative Makeup

Whether you realize it or not, we are currently living in the era of transformative makeup more than ever before. With the 20th century firmly behind us, the new millennium has jumpstarted an astounding transformation of makeup by the industry’s biggest international cosmetics firms. Undoubtedly, the ability of makeup to transform has become highly regarded as an art form and there has been a slew of new looks that have become idolized and copied the world over. The old adage goes ‘what’s old is new again’ and it aptly fits when it comes to the current rejuvenation being seen in the makeup industry. The following examples are considered vintage makeup that has made the leap to the mainstream after debuting generations ago to wild acclaim.

The Power of Pastels

Now is definitely not the time to be afraid of color when there are some many more amazing shades of blue, red, pink, and vibrant yellow than ever before. Heavily featured throughout the 50s and 60s, booming color is now the name of the game and women shouldn’t be afraid to transform their lips from regular red to purple and bright orange. These are the colors that are stirring up traffic across concrete jungles the world over and show no signs of slowing down.

Pout It Out!

There’s nothing like an overdrawn lip to scream sensuality, seductiveness, and a bit of moxie. Back in the day, movie star Marlene Dietrich was a big supporter of the look, which dictates going outside the lip’s natural line to get a pout that is full on and curvy to the core. In the new millennium, all generations of women are using this age-old trick to enhance the natural features of their faces.

Boohoo.com sets its sights on Nasty Gal

The UK fashion retailer Boohoo.com has its eye on acquiring Los Angeles brand Nasty Gal. Nasty Gal Inc has announced it is seeking permission from the US Bankruptcy Court to launch an auction process for the sale of its business, and is set to ask for approval for Boohoo to act as the 'stalking horse bidder'. A potential purchase would be a further boost for the rapidly-growing Manchester-based Boohoo, which added the fashion site Pretty Little Thing to its portfolio earlier this year, as well as teming up with model Jordyn Woods on a size-inclusive capsule collection released last autumn.
