Get the Gatsby Look | Bésame Cosmetics
by Guest Glossist Noelani Zervas | Mon Petit Chou Chou
All things twenties, deco fabulous, and Gatsby inspired are roaring into media, fashion, and movies this season. Flapper fringe, headpieces, gowns and nouveau accessories abound, but no need to blow your budget to take advantage of this trend. Dip your toes in the chic waves by test driving some make up that embodies this glamorous old world look, at minimum expense.
With out further ado, allow me to introduce Bésame Cosmetics. Founded in 2004 by Gabriela Hernandez, doyenne of classic and vintage inspired make up, Bésame is a sultry and fresh take on the Hollywood vibe of yester year.
Inspiration for the line was sourced close to home, via the products Gabriela’s grandmother used and owned. Gabriela’s artistry and creative background is echoed in the supple shades, luxe packaging and thoughtful details contained in each and every item that make up the line.
Responsible formulas and ethical ingredients are a pre-requisite, so you can feel good about what you put on your face. Dense color provides long wear, staying in place through out your busy day, but never feeling dry. Bésame is “committed to creating truly unique artful cosmetics, hand crafted to empower women to feel feminine, elegant, and glamorous.”
At the heart of Bésame cosmetics, lush crimson pigments to enrich your lips, like the timeless Bésame Red, and their latest addition, Crimson Crème Rouge, which can be used on lips or cheeks. Go on, you have full creative liberty to channel your inner Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth or Marlene Dietrich with arched brows, dramatic heart shaped lips and lush lashes.
Beauty, brains, and glamour, what’s not to love?
