A Very Vintage Valentine's Day

A Very Vintage Valentine's Day

As you have probably deduced by now, I am a pretty corny person. I like themes. I laugh at pun-packed product names (usually). I love Valentine's Day. At least I'm not alone there.

It's not much of a big to-do here in France though. I guess I'll have to pick up makeup products to comfort myself. And then paint my face in celebration.

And—since I'm super into vintage-inspired beauty these days—I've been eyeing looks that fit the bill on this front too.

Inspired by—actually, we all know who already, right?—this is classic and chic. That red hue is stupendous.

The Pinup Doll inspires me on a regular basis. She's a style icon. And this sweet makeup is no exception (plus, it features Bésame CosmeticsSnow White Red and I just adore Gabriela Hernandez). The faux-flushed cheeks are an excellent touch.

Ericka Douglas does impeccable work. Natural, sleek and pretty. Just sayin'

Shot by photographer extraordinaire Eric Acquaye, this snap leaves me in awe. The glossy lips stole the show.

Now for something a little sultrier. Smoky eyes and a vampy lip. It's sexy, no?

Not following The Desi Pinup yet? You're missing out! Anyway, the bold brows and the vivid dark lips are a phenomenal pairing.  

Happy Valentine's Day. In spirit, not actuality! But it'll be here soon enough.
