Peggy Bundy didn’t have a plastic device to give her hair an artificial “bump,” but we are guessing she’d love it if she did! The original Queen of Teasing, Peggy Bundy achieved that mile high bump the old-fashioned way – with tons of hairspray and tons of teasing! While some may argue that teasing your hair is actually very bad for it, it still doesn’t stop many women from the desire to achieve that ultimate bump. Sally’s Beauty Supply sells a great (and cheap!) teasing brush so if teasing is your thing, go ahead and practice. Perfect that bump!
Before the Kardashian sisters and Demi Moore showed up with their long, raven locks there was the dark-haired Morticia Addams. Known for her signature, long glossy tresses, one mischievious smile from Morticia could mesmerize and mystify you. Want your own long, glossy tresses? Try NuStyle Organic Hair-Smoothing Serum. Warm up a nickle-sized amount of the smoothing serum in your palms and apply it from the ends to scalp. But don’t add too much! You want glossy not greasy. Feeling inspired by those Morticia Addams sultry dark lips? Try Milani lipstick in Red Velvet.
Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter known for her prominent unibrow often portrayed in her self portraits. While no one really wants a unibrow, you’ve got to admit that there’s something wonderfully strong and feminine about a great set of brows! Whether you like your brows thick, thin, or completely unruly – make yours eye-catching with Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Brow Powder Duo. With two shades of brown, I love blending this powder onto my eyebrows to make them as dramatic as I’d like them to be.
The Cleopatra movie may have flopped in 1963, but Elizabeth Taylor’s eyeliner sure didn’t. In fact, women everywhere have been eyeliner obsessed since! Whether you want a simple winged eyeliner like Lauren Conrad or a dramatic ultra thick liner, Milani’s Eye Tech Liquid Eye Liner in Black is super short and gives you incredible control when applying. Keep your elbow on a flat surface and apply before curling your lashes or applying mascara. If you’ve never used liquid eyeliner, it may take a few tries (or more!) to get the hang of it.
