Throwback Thursday: Classic Beauty, Ginger Rogers
This week we honor classic beauty, Ginger Rogers.
An icon of Hollywood cinema, this legendary starlet of the silver screen is best known for her amazing dance routines that paired her talented moves with the one and only Fred Astaire. A Missouri native, Rogers would go on to star in a whopping 70 films! Her charm and glamorous tomboy appeal made her a beloved celeb with a style that is still imitated today.
Rogers kept with the glitz and glam style of the Hollywood era, helping to create fantastical imagery for eager viewers to escape to when they came to the movie theaters. Her makeup fit with the trends of the day, rocking thinned out eyebrows, mascara that coated just the tops of lashes, conservative eyeliner, a light pink flush for the cheeks, and berry colored lip shades that were applied to give the looks a more wider shape horizontally.
While Rogers was for sure a definite beauty, what she was really known for was her hair. A true hairstyle chameleon it is said Rogers never wore the same style twice and created truly unique 'dos that always kept fans guessing. Of the many looks she wore, Rogers often rocked gorgeous variations of either soft curls or perfect waves. Throughout her movie careers Rogers kept changing things up, even leaving behind her signature blonde for darker brunette tresses.
To recreate Rogers look and make it modern is definitely doable. Just check out the fun hair and makeup video below to see how. But the real secret to stealing a little of Ginger's swag is to keep mixing up your own. With 70 films under her belt, can you blame a gal for the need to evolve a little?
