How to dress with a vintage Vibe

When dressing vintage, remember to add modern twists so you don’t look too dated. Pastel and floral are a must especially, if you want the feminine look. Remember that collecting pieces can be expensive so be prepared save up!

How to dress like the Duchess everyday

  • Black is definitely a staple in her wardrobe
  • A Trench coat is a must
  • Simple jewellery, nothing too flashy, Royals have to be rather reserved.
  • Nude heels
  • Fitted black trousers
  • Nude/black handbag
  • Keep your makeup simple.
  • Invest in chiffon blouses

Makeup Must haves

One of these days my lovelies I will post a makeup tutorial for you all but, until I figure out basic makeup (my cordination is terrible due to my Cerebral Palsy) a written list. 

  1. Eco tools brushes – yes they are expensive but it’s better to not have synthetic bristles as it transfers make up from the brush better on to your skin. They also have chunky handles (Good for Cerebral Palsy) and endorsed by coachella queen, Vanessa Hudgens.
  2. MUA felt liner – the best one if your just learning how to do flicks as it’s easy to wipe off, leaving a small smudge. – practice flicks before putting on makeup to go out because panda eyes are not in this season.
  3. Maybeline blushed nudes pallets – perfect for a girly girl like me who wears lots of pastel colours. Creamy texture too.
  4. DKYN setting spray – as long as you spray in a T formation 4 inches away from your face, it won’t give you that wet look.
  5. A makeup organiser – right now I have all my makeup in an Audrey Hepburn box but it’s over flowing! Best ones are from super drug.
  6. A lip balm to prep your lips with then apply lipstick with the matching liner and then gild over a lip stain from Revelon.
  7. Splash out on expensive makeup remover so it doesn’t harsh your skin. Emma Watson is a fan of Lancôme.
  8. Personally girls it’s time to ditch the highlighter – very early 2000s! Eek! 
  9. Make sure your lips and nails match. My signature colour is Elizabeth Arden’s red door nail polish.

My favourite Makeup Brands

  1. Revlon – The makeup brand that Audrey Hepburn used!
  2. Max factor – Makeup stylist to Marylin  Monroe.
  3. NYX – Their range is budget friendly with amazing stay power and a great range of liners and eyeshades.
  4. MUA – Their foundation would stay put in a monsoon and the powder leaves me glow free. The Lux lipstick has a Great Gatsby vibe.
  5. Maybeline – Every girls first foundation was the Dream Matte Mousse. I love their Contor sticks as their so creamy and blends in so well. Need I mention the blushed nudes pallet? 
  6. I use the organic company for my skin care routines.
  7. DNKY – Setting spray is like glue!
  8. Benifit- Their pore professional is so kind on your skin.

The Fashion expert: An interview with Zahra Parry

Hi Z, so what made you want to be fashion blogger and makeup artist? I realised I wanted to be a make-up artist when I applied for an assistant MUA role for a short film, I’d always had an intrest in make-up and was obsessed with putting it on myself, so i decided to apply and I worked under a professional for a week, I loved the craft of it and even more so the creative enviroment of being on set. Fashion blogging is somewhat new to me, I just found I was getting a lot of questions about where I got my clothes, and getting alot of compliments over the years on my style. So ive just started posting #ootd’s on instagram at he moment but eventually I’d like to start vlogging about fashion tips and make fashion hauls.

What’s your top five beauty products? 1. revlon colourstay foundation , this is my day to day foundation and It’s amazing because it’s affordable, full coverage and durable! 2. Mac strobe cream– I love this as a primer before foundation it gives you a dewy finish and makes your skin glow! 3. Urban decay allnighter setting spray– this is a lifesaver, by far the most effective of setting sprays! 4. becca cosmetics champange pop highlighter– i have no words because it’s so beautiful, natural looking highlighter that really exentuates the high-points of your face. 5. mac studio fix pressed powder– essential on set! male or female, this powder is perfect for taking out the shine or giving cast a flawless finish on screen.

Where do you mainly get your clothes from? I previously worked for Topshop, most my clothes are from there because of the cheeky discount, but I also love Zara and H&M.

What’s your favourite fashion trend for autumn? I love love LOVE the check pieces coming through this autumn, it screams clueless and that’s one of my favourite films!

5) Makeup/style inspirations? Style inspo is really hard because my style changes with every season but I would say probably Olivia Palermo for A/W, Vanessa Hudgens for S/S. Make up inspo would have to be some of the looks created by @makeupbyariel on Shay mitchell, and @makeupbymario on Kim kardashian.

what’s your worst fashion disaster? I’ve had so many, mainly because I’m so clumsy! The worst would have to be when I wore a leather skirt and fishnets to Radio1’s Big Weekend back in north wales, trying to acheive that rocky/festival look I had thaught that a leather skirt was a great idea for a day of 30 degree heat I chafed so much my legs started bleeding and I had so go home and miss RIHANNA!

what’s the worst makeup trend? Contour, I feel strongly that contour is something ypu should only apply if really needed or in a drag show.

what’s your dream job? I’m still not sure, I just KNOW that I’m

supposed to be in television and media. I’m one of those people who wants to be good at everything so I have a choice!

favourite fashion magazine? Back in the day I used to read LOOK magazine weekly! Now I dont read most magazines because the content is so extremley focused on womens physical apperance and celebrity sex lives and scandals that it’s so un-intresting to me. I watch alot of vloggers and read blogs instead

contouring yay or nay? Yay on Drag queens, Nay otherwise.
