My dress is lace, I'd consider it quite vintage so I am going with smokey eyes, blush and natural lips. I am thinking that when I show the MUA a picture and tell her what I usually wear she'll weave her magic. Have a search for picture on google, I often do this and theres LOADS to choose from.

Aha! Sorry thought you meant mix of the two! Scarlett Johanson usually has a very vintage 50s style look so maybe look up pics of her. Also Dita Von Teese loves the vintage look. Is that what you're looking for ? http://fiercebeautyandfashion.wordpress ... glam-look/ [attachment=2:2e5r5teh]scarlet.gif[/attachment:2e5r5teh] I would think Kim Kardashian has quite a contemp look - Maybe a bit heavy though.

I find it so hard to get make-up ideas, because I find it hard to distinguish between wanting the persons make-up or wanting to actually look like the person IYKWIM. Here is what I'm thinking.. (and I know what you mean, I would describe my wedding dress as modern vintage :o0 despite the contradiction) [img:j67npalr]http://cdn.amazooo.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/taylor-swift-Optimized.jpg[/img:j67npalr] [img:j67npalr]http://www.makeupbag.net/wp-content/uploads/isla-fisher.jpg[/img:j67npalr]

I have dark hair and blue eyes so my first step was to google actresses with my colouring and then google their red carpet looks - you'll get loads of ideas this way. After looking through loads of pictures my make-up inspiration then became Courteney Cox!
