who is in love with the new hit ABC show Pan-Am?
i'm not sure what beauty item I like the most - the eyeliner, the great hair or that sweet blue Pan-Am bag. . .but I know with some basic make-up techniques and a set of hot rollers. . .you too can be on your way to the Pan-Am Look.
last night while attending the Bloomingdale's Think Pink event hosted by All Things Chic, I talked with Barbara, the lovely make-up Consultant with Chanel. I asked her about creating a "Pan-Am" Eye. She said the trick is all in the liner - and that a gel or liquid liner is your best bet. And don't forget the little "wing" on the outer corner.
here is me before. . .
and here is after. . .
with a close-up of the eye - I love that sparkle liner!
as for hair - kicky bobs were a sign of the times. if you have medium length hair, stick in some hot rollers for volume. if you are feeling really adventurous, do a little back-combing around your hairline for that "puffed up" look. maybe even a vintage 60's hair piece to add to your look.
clothes? you have to go vintage. . .besides the eye-catching blue uniform, embroidered bag and white gloves, you can catch the ladies of Pan-Am in midi-length pencil skirts, fitted short-sleeved cardigans, and nude pumps. A totally classic early-60's look. And let's not forget the girdles and nude hose.
and those bags. . .
here's a black one you can get at Amazon:
so what do you think? will the Pan-Am style catch on like the Mad Men style did?
catch you soon -
