Fashion Inspiration: Smokin' Sirens

I found these photos on the incredible Retronaut Blog (be careful with that place, you can loose a lot of time going back in time. I have keep going back to look at these photos. The make up is incredible. Somehow they pull off eyebrows and makeup that is so extreme without looking like on of the ladies in 'Brazil' (film) or as though they are perpetually startled or angry. 
They just look smokin', fierce, and Over The Top in the best of ways. I am curious to play around with this look. I may share as long as I don't look like a startled Meerkat.

  1. There's something in the eyes of old school Hollywood movie stars of the silent era. A drowsy dreamy coo it seems. Very cool. Thanks for posting!

  2. I am one of the co-founders of a new social network website that is based on fashion. It is called Outfit Hive and it's a place where people can upload their own looks and styles and also browse for inspiration. We have only just launched a couple of days ago, and we are still developing the website, but we know it will be very successful. We are currently emailing all fashion bloggers and stylists as very soon we will be looking for a stylist/blogger of the month. If you are interested please get in touch as we would like to hear more from you.
    You can set up a profile today and advertise your own blog ect by sharing a link on your profile.

    Also if you go to our facebook page and like it:

    we will be able to keep in touch with you about the opportunity to get yourself on the website as a stylist in the very near future.
    We look forward to hearing from you,
    OH! Director
