  1. They wore gigantic, gawdy costume jewelry which was really bright and ornamental. The make-up was bright red lipstick, eyebrow pencil, and bright eyeshadow.

  2. Pearls or diamonds.

    As far as makeup goes a very natural look with a bright shade of red lipstick.

    Try to find a pair of cat-eye glasses to finish off the look!


    Here are some pictures of girls in the 50’s to give you a visual idea. =)


  3. I love everthing rockabilly its a way of life. Heres a cool site with info on 50s clothing.

  4. they wore pearl earings and necklaces kind of like the popular beaded necklaces we wear today, scarves were also an accessorie. for make-up they wore liquid black eye liner just on the top eye lid, red lipstick is a must have, blush and mascara.

  5. Wear a poodle skirt, a pair of converses, a white T-shirt, and a little scarf or piece of fabric around your neck. For makeup use red lipstick like everyone else is saying.

  6. HI Dana, Glad you liked them! I am sure Cricuit must have a Halloween cartridge you can purchase with Halloween things. That’s why I love my Silhouette because you don’t need a cartridge you can just dowload whatever pattern you want to cut.

  7. I have not checked in here for some time because I thought it was getting boring, but the last few posts are good quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my daily bloglist. You deserve it friend :)
