My go to look to add drama to any occasions is 50's Pin Up and it has been for years. There is something unbearably gorgeous about a woman dressed up to the nines in the classiest way possible. Using just a couple of elements from this era you can find a look that suits you. Its not necessary to go for the hair, the make up and the ball gown all at once.
Just the eyeliner and perfect red lip with relaxed natural beachy hair is very casual yet looks beautifully groomed.
If you don't fancy embracing the whole shebang, just try the classic red polish manicure I guarantee you will feel sexier the second your fingertips are dry.
I am a make-up junkie. I have products in my kit and in my personal collection ranging from two pound q-tips all the way up to La Prairie and Creme de La Mer, so I definitely sing the praises (or not) of items from a very broad price range.
That said, sometimes its lovely to splash out on a couple of items that just make you feel like you are pampering yourself. So in the spirit of the Pin Up girl go and have a test of these at your local beauty department and give yourself a little treat.
