I Got A 1950s Makeover

  • Published on Sep 27, 2018
  • So for our decades series last year we traveled back through time until the 1960s - so I decided to go back another decade and put together an entire look based on the fashion, hair and makeup trends of the 50s! What do you think of the finished look?
    A big thank you to Kayley Melissa and Gabriela Hernandez for helping us out with our midcentury makeover!

      Hey Safiya :) my mother was born in the 50s and really into fashion all her life. She told me why the bras were shaped this way. These Bras are made to mimic the growing breasts of adolescent girls. if you recall thats what your "chesticles" looked like around 13-16. I would interpret into that that it is to represent youthfullness possiblity fertility playing into that whole being a young fertile mom kinda thing.. Also i have no idea why but your videos are incredibly entertaining to me. have a nice day!

    Don’t know why I though of this.... Imagine your a mother in the 1950s and you have a point bra, okay? You have a child and he has his birthday party, you are holding cupcake and him and his friends run over to you for the cupcakes. One of his friends slip and BAM a child stabbed himself on your bra. Dangerous bastards. 😂
