I’ve said it before, glamour can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. To me, glamour is a feeling that emanates from the inside and manifests itself in different ways on the outside. Some days, I feel glamorous in my jeans and t-shirt, minimal makeup and other days, I feel like I want to put on a full face of makeup complete with a bold lipstick and a dress.

For Karina’s shoot, we started with the idea of vintage glamour and pin up. But my style is definitely not vintage – I love the crisp, modern quality of magazine style portraits so we had to bring a fresh modern twist to the classic pin up look. Here is what we came up with:

I love the combination of the winged eyeliner and bold red lip with the polka dot dress and pearls.

Again, there’s nothing more classic than a little black dress, especially in lace. But combining that with Karina’s modern pinup makeup brought the whole look up a notch.
