“Like charity, I believe glamour should begin at home” — Loretta Young
I crave drama and glamour. Specifically, the Old Hollywood style glamour that resembles the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth — red lips, smoky eyes and larger-than-life lashes. Much to my surprise and delight, Rimmel London has made my dreams possible at unbelievable prices!
Smokey Eyed Vixen: Rimmel London has outdone themselves with Glam’Eyes. The rich pigments and slight shimmer help this easy-to-apply eyeshadow hold its own against its more expensive competitors. I used Night Jewel and Plum Romance to create a more urban spin on a classic smoky eye. The average price for Glam’Eyes is around $3.99!
Ooh La La Lashes: I was blessed with the longest eyelashes ever. Seriously, think of a giraffe’s lashes or those ridiculous fake eyelashes worn on Halloween. There is only one issue with having extremely long eyelashes; they are really hard to curl. The weight of my lashes pulls them down and they end up straight as a pin by the end of the day. This really kills my glamour buzz. Rimmel London’s Sexy Curves Mascara made my lashes curl up and added a tremendous amount of drama to a rather dull day at the office. Also, Sexy Curves mascara added the right amount of oomph to my smoky eyes (there is a fine line)! I would recommend this mascara because it curls your lashes and adds extreme volume, all for around $6.
Perfect Pout: Like most Arizona girls, I struggle with keeping my lips hydrated. Dry, cracked lips + red lipstick = gross. No uber-glam look is complete without a perfect set of red lips! Moisture Renew Cream Lipgloss in SOS Red offers the answer with a blend of collagen and vitamins A, C and E to keep your pucker perfectly moisturized and ready for smooching. And, it has an SPF 15 to boot. The average price of this creamy wonder? Around $6!
There you have it – a super glamorous, Old Hollywood look at a fraction of the cost of department store makeup! Make sure to visit rimmellondon.com so their team of makeup artists can show you how the experts create their signature London looks!
