Lulu's Vintage Fair : Vintage Hair Lounge and HAUL!!!!

Last Sunday I took myself to Lulu's Vintage Fair at the Corn Exchange in Brighton Dome. 

It. Was. Awesome!!!

My day started at 12pm with the absolutely incredible ladies of Vintage Hair Lounge! I had my hair and make-up done for the ridiculously cheap price of £40. I'm no model, so when an audience started to form it felt utterly bizarre, and frankly terrifying when I was bare faced!  I must say, I am now slightly obsessed with the idea of airbrush make-up having experienced it, and Besame Cosmetics do some mind-blowing lipsticks. My entire adult life I have been waiting for them! 

The hair:
























The make-up:






















I can't get over how 'fresh' my complexion looks. It's practically flawless! The Airbase High Definition Airbrush Make Up is the holy grail as far as I'm concerned. I'll never be lucky enough to own one myself, but if I were ever to have the funds, oh hell to the yes. To get anything close to this effect I use Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and it's so ridiculously heavy it's not something I particularly enjoy having on my face, but if I'm having a breakout then it's a godsend. But the airbase make-up is barely there. My skin could breathe and I didn't get any oily creases in the usual trouble spots. 

Here you can see the Besame Red shade lipstick. It's so heavily pigmented that I apply it with a brush and with one or two delicate coats I can get this shade to last all day! It does struggle with drinks but what lipstick doesn't?! It takes longer than most to start to come off. The best part? It's not oily and it doesn't stick to your teeth!! 

Absolute convert. 




They aren't cheap at £22 a go, but given how little you need per application I am fairly sure this one lipstick will last me a couple of years at least!! I can't wait to explore their entire range.

I absolutely love the design too! It's just so classical and something I'd expect to have found in my nans make-up bag as a child.

 So those are my two 'reviews' if you like. Now comes the HAULAGE!!! 

In terms of clothes; although there were some absolutely mind-blowing pieces available, they weren't something I would have the confidence to wear out! Sizing was also an issue. There was a lot of genuine fur products on sale, which I felt very conflicted about to be honest... Anyway, I bagged a vintage inspired top and a vintage cardigan!







Jewellery. Oh my word the jewellery. I was in my element and spent hours just admiring it all. It's nothing short of a miracle I only brought these pieces back home with me!





70'S HAT ALERT!!!! 
This absolutely beautiful hat weighs a fair amount and is absolutely going to make my winter more fun. It's just so sparkly and awesome. I had to have it. I believe it was £17! 





 Last but not least, I got two pictures for my room! 
I now have Mae West and Joan Crawford to keep me company.



That concludes my vintage haul! 

Expect to see more of these in the future. I'm so in love!!!
