Looking Great Starts From the Inside Out

Like we said last week, we at the Messes of Dresses Blog love all things retro — retro-style dresses, retro accessories, retro hair and makeup styles — and today we're going to take a look at some retro beauty advice. Listen carefully, ladies — who knows what you might learn?

I myself have a pretty round face, and, archaic though it may seem, Miss Ratherly Stern's advice is right on the money. Take a look in the mirror — were you able to learn anything from her  as well?

Well, what do you think? I personally find it interesting that even as the frocks that were once the mainstream are now considered retro-style dresses, all the basics of beauty advice still hold true. Lots of rest, exercise a proper hygiene routine and a good diet all contribute to looking your best — the difference now is that we've come so far in the world of cosmetics that we can look like we've gotten 8 hours of sleep when really we were up all night partyi — er, studying.

Eventually, though, all that studying catches up with us. It's best to just stay healthy and well-rested — make-up can make you look great, but it'll make you look even greater if you've got a nice, solid, healthy base to work with.
