Fabulous Fall Vintage Fashion Show: Fundraiser for home makeover project

The ladies (including myself) strutted their stuff last Thursday night for a worthy cause, project Clean-Start, the home makeover project I spearheaded this year with Cope Family Services for a family in need. You can track the progress of this remodel by clicking on the title “Cope Clean-Start Makeover Project”.  After the fashion show, we opened up the doors at Betty’s Girl, and the women opened up their purses! Thirty percent of all sales from Betty’s Girl were donated to the makeover project.

Va, va voom! Hair by Betty’s Girl.

These are collections pieced together from donated clothes. The styling is by Kim of Betty’s Girl -put two pieces of fabric in this woman’s hands and she creates miracles! After she finished we all wanted to buy back our old clothes!

Wonderful desserts were provided by Sonoma Syrup Co. and champagne was turned into a festive cocktail with the addition of these alluring syrups. For recipes go to their website.

Here is Ronda Carlson, flashing another fifties cut with the classic pearls to boot.

Ending with a most decadent ball gown.

Make Up Tips
Tip #1: Great makeup starts with great skin, so wash with a mild cleanser (never soap), follow with a gentle exfoliate such as Burts Bee’s Facial Scrub (This scrub is $7.50 at Target and Whole Foods) and finish with a light moisturizer w/ SPF every day.
Tip #2: Use a makeup primer, it’s a base for your makeup to adhere to. If you’ve experienced creasing eyeshadow or foundation/powder that doesn’t last throughout the day then this small investment is a no-brainer. My recommendations are Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Smashbox photo Finish Foundation Primer. (Products can be found at Sephora for $18/eyes and $36/face)

Tip #3: If you’re a daily eyeshadow wearer, invest in a few affordable Sonia Kashuk brushes from Target. Pack (don’t sweep) eyeshadow on to your lower lid using a small eyeshadow brush and blend your crease color with a fluffy crease brush. (Both brushes are around $5 ea.)
