Reem is off on sunny Cali for a vacation so Jenna and I decided to put together a little throwback makeup post. What better era to cover then the sixties? For all the Lady Gaga's out int he world with their wild and crazy get ups, no one can really top this era when it was not performance art but in the street. Real girls where painting flowers on their cheeks and eyes, pale blue eyeshadow was a best selling shade and neons were a neutral. And that was just for real girls. Editorials pasted and drew, added appliques, feathers and petals all in the name of beauty. It was just groovy Baby!
