Perth's very own pinup queen, burlesque artist, producer, & blogger.
I recently posted up a blog explaining what a positive body image is, how important this neglected issue is and how to improve your own (which you can view here), of which I received some great feedback for. Today I’m blogging about how glamour and confidence work together.
Being glamorous is a natural elegance and beauty both inside and out. Though a lot of work is usually applied into creating a pinup perfect exterior, it’s the passion of the vintage styling and using this to create an effortless look. If you look at any Hollywood star from golden age of glamour you’ll note that they all have this appearance; from Rita Hayworth to Betty Grable. The key to this is confidence, and if you lack this check out my last blog post on this subject, and always remember to fake it till you make it! If you tell yourself you’re a strong, beautiful, talented woman (or man) every single day eventually you will believe it.
There are a lot of people I know who are quite big fans of vintage glamour, and haven’t yet tried it for variety of reasons, but what most of these people haven’t discovered for themselves yet, is just how empowering this styling is. When I have my hair in victory rolls, perfectly applied lipstick, cat’s eyes, and a set well drawn on set of eyebrows I feel nothing can stop me, and I know I’m not the only one! It’s an amazing feeling to know you look that good, and in turn feeling that good. Even the simple act of apply just lipstick can give you a little boost! Through glamour confidence is achieved.
In my opinion as a pinup model and makeup artist the vintage look can suit anyone, and if you haven’t found this yet, you just need to adapt the styling to suit your personality. I want everyone to try pinup at least once, and experience how amazing it can be. Everyone I know who’s tried this style, has fallen in love and made it their lifestyle (including me!) Always remember that the skills needed for this unique hair and makeup styling won’t come overnight, but rather with a lot of practice, if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again! I’ve been practicing since I was 14-years-old and I still discover new and innovative ways of doing things.
