Vintage glam & natural beauty: Have we forgotten how it’s done?

Beauty Bomb!  Today, I invite you to look more than read.  I went through the tumultuous task of searching for and selecting what I’m happy to say are less familiar photos, most of them vintage, of some of the most familiar beauties we know and have known, like this old lady here.  Like her, some might have two or three photos each.

At the end of it all of course I’ll include a source links list for proper reference.  In this batch of overwhelming external beauty, the women come from the Western hemisphere.  Please don’t say I have a biased eye, there are SO many beautiful women of different nationalities so I could not put all of them in one post.  Photos of certain Asian women I wanted to include are harder to come by online, so I will go through the same process for them in the next batch from the eastern hemisphere.  I wonder how it is that the overly processed images of a lot of famous women today often lose their original spark, elegance, and integrity.  Okay, enough reading now, it’s time to see exactly what I mean amidst a mushroom cloud of God-given beauty.  Continue reading to see the selection of photos :).  Sources should be at the end.


Product Swapping with Lipglossiping :)

My share of the product swap for my UK blogger friend Charlotte of Lipglossiping arrived in Hampshire two weeks ago…here’s a photo of Charlotte.

My friend Budjette Tan carried them on  for me as he is currently taking an internship in Manchester.  Unfortunately Charlotte’s beloved camera went 6 feet under last week and she’s still in queue for a new one.  Oh here’s her with her baby Leila.

But hey, she said she couldn’t wait and she posted the arrival of my meek Filipino beauty haul for her online today using her husbands camera phone to take photos! 🙂  I never opened her site with such a huge smile on my face.   It felt super surreal seeing the drugstore cosmetics I packed in bubble wrap appear on the blog site of one of the UK’s most witty and revered top beauty bloggers (I mean, she has to be that if Urban Decay happens to send her and her alone the Alice in Wonderland palette FREE  weeks prior to its launch all the way to the UK from the US).  Later on she says she will be sending her end of the swap to me 🙂  She’s preparing a mini surprise haul of some of her own favorites from the UK as well.  Aren’t we excited to find out what Lipglossiping loves in that little heap of uber affordable Pinoy cosmetics?  I think she’ll be posting a sequel to that introductory post, once she gets her camera I assume, where she’ll be supposedly swatching and testing the goods I sent.  Click on her site logo below  to  find out what I sent her!
