My Hair Diaries: Old Hollywood Glam for the Sun Met 2017

With a new year comes new social events and The Sun Met is one of the most stylish horse racing events in Cape Town with a strong focus on the fashion. With the theme “Decades of Glamour”, my look was inspired by old Hollywood glamour from the 1950’s. It’s one of my favorite eras for fashion and beauty with stars like Marilyn Monroe, Ava Gardner and Veronica Lake setting the trends.

My hair and makeup spoke of this era and Marios Atzemoglou from Marios Company for Hair created the perfect Vintage Waves to take you back to 1950. With a dramatic red lip, winged liner and feather boa – I was ready for my close-up!

Makeup Details:

Foundation – Estee Lauder in Shell Beige

Contour: Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer

Lashes: Lashes by FashionBreed in “Kally”

Highlight – MAC “Soft&Gentle”

Lips: MAC Retro Matte in “Feels so Grand”
