Cheap Thrill: The "Bunny-Ears" Headband and Vintage Love

I am a fan of everything vintage-y and retro. I can't explain it, that kind of stuff just appeals to me instantly. Just like this red polka-dot headband I got from Saizen (PHP 85.) It was love at first sight.
Isn't it cute? It reminds me of the headpiece those women in WWII motivational posters.
The bestie doesn't like it because it reminds her of Minnie Mouse. LOL

It's great. It's got wire inside so you can shape it anyway you like: upright ears, droopy ears or put it on the other way around, hide the ends behind your hair and wear it as an ordinary headband. Also, because of the wire it's easy to put on it'll stay in place for sure.
I don't wear it out, but it's great for keeping my hair out of my face when I'm doing my makeup.

And speaking of makeup, I also used "old school"-type makeup in these pics: Pancake foundation applied with a wet sponge. I know that with the kind of advancements in makeup nowadays, this can be considered outdated,  pancake foundation for me will always be considered "moviestar makeup" because of its presence in classic movies.

Also, don't these pictures look aged as well? Haha. Blame my poor photography skills, but I like the effect I got. I used natural light from my bedroom window. The patches are from the light spilling in through my lacy curtain, not Photoshop. It's almost hipster-y, in my opinion.

Here's a pic of the (all affordable and mostly local) products I used:

Ellana primer
Kokuryu Summer Cake in Orange Blush
Ever Bilena Mousse Blush in Cinnamon

Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
Nichido Sing Eye Shadow in Gold Foil
Fashion 21 Dipliner (Brown)


Careline Vitamin E Gloss in 107 (will do a post about this soon!)
