The 50s Take The Runway with Carola

May 8, 2014

If you don’t know of her, you have heard of her. Miss Carola Myers with Carola Myers Makeup & Hair ArtistsShe is beyond talented and is always around the DC area beautifying someone, whether it be a bride taking her aisle or a movie star about to take the red carpet! We sat down with Carola to find out what she was inspired by recently and here is what she had to share with us.

“Many brides want a style that ensures timeless and classic beauty. After all, these are the photos their children and grandchildren will see. As a recent trend, we were inspired by the retro looks from the 50’s, specifically the wonderful example of the iconic Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly. Grace exhibited such a glamorous style yet definitely personified the classic and timeless beauty. Her looks absolutely translated and defined American beauty during her era. Kelly has been an inspiration during this early Spring season.

What does this mean? 

It is all about emphasizing the eyes and eyebrows. The eyebrows especially bring out the 40’s and  50’s style. Pair your newly defined brows with a finish lip. I recommend using a red, sheer vibrant, or rosy pink lips. It will help you stand out, complete the look and of course feel beautiful on your special occasion!”

Thank you Carola for sharing your spring inspiration with the DW team!

Ladies, take notes…BOLD is back in!
