It’s ‘Vintage Make-Up Week’ here on – well it’s going to be more like 12 days but that doesn’t sound as good! As I say in this video I didn’t want to make it a formulaic “this is how to do a Marilyn look… this is how to do a 40’s lip” (I’ll do that kind of thing at a later date) but more of a fun look at vintage products, make-up history and some of my personal collection favourites. There’s going to be a mixture of films and blog posts including a couple of really facinating documentaries and two make-overs the likes of which I havent seen attempted before ; )

If you truly love make-up I think you are going to love what I’ve got coming up so stay tuned!

I can’t guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.

I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me or sent to me by make-up companies to use in my professional capacity as a make-up artist for fashion and celebrity photo shoots, red carpet etc. I am also sent products by many of the top magazines to judge for awards.

I do not accept payment and am not sponsored to make any of the films on this channel. Some of the links under the videos and blog posts on my site are affiliated however and as stated before, I only feature products I like, or want to try.



  1. Hello Lisa! I've recently began collecting vintage compacts. My favorite ones so far are the 1950s Stratton ones with the lipstick tube that pops up, similar to the Mother of Pearl one you showed. I have two gold-tone ones and one in a striking enamel "print" called Indian Empress. I've kept the ones in pristine condition (with the original stickers, puffs, pouches, and boxes) as decorative-collectible pieces, but there's one that has obvious signs of wear, including some minor scratches, that I decided to put to use. I inserted a Besame Cosmetics lipstick called "Red Velvet 1946" in the holder and filled the other section with one of their brightening powders (it seemed appropriate to use vintage-inspired cosmetics) and every single time I take out my compact to touch up, people's faces light up. And it's not only women, one time a gentleman walked across a restaurant to tell me I had brought him memories of his grandmother, who had a "powder box" like mine. It's such a conversation piece, and it gives me such pleasure every time I use it…I have to confess that I sometimes plan my makeup around that particular red lipstick so I have an excuse to carry my vintage case with me! I know this video is old, but I love revisiting it!
