Retro Waves and Makeup! Get Ready With me

Here’s a little get ready with me / tutorial on this retro waves hairstyle and makeup! I wanted to show you how to get these old Hollywood inspired waves, but with a modern take! They’re done in a way similar to the 1940s and 1950s hair, but the style is looser and a bit more effortless. The makeup is also inspired by classic techniques, but with some glitter and drama! I hope you enjoy it!
