by Karen

It has been a month since we last made a purely theme-based review of our catalogue. We have brought many ideas for bridesmaids as well as for the mothers of grooms of the brides. Besides bringing you tons of ideas for the brides, it is now time to make a short review of the retro styles for romantic formals. Valentine’s Day is coming and we need a little retro inspiration to find our best retro looks for the coming affair. Let’s look through all best sellers by Nataya to be worn for Vintage Valentine’s Day parties.

Boho style

Free locks, raspberry, pink or like colors in your curls plus simple daily makeup will make you into a boho style muse of the past. You may dawn the romantic Nataya gown in ash rose. And to complete the look wear it with raspberry or vivid pink lipstick. This romantic style is up to an artistic person with boundless imagination and tousled locks. To make such locks you can wash your hair and part your locks with a fork then dry the hair with a dryer.

Retro gypsy style

Here is another variation of the boho style for gals who wish to have a more of a gypsy style look. If you prefer leggings and high heels you will love the bohemian top by Nataya. In this case you cannot do without black eyeliner for the eyelids and coral red lipstick for the lips. If you prefer gypsy boots and skirts, either in maxi or in midi length, you may be fond of the Nataya Rose romantic top. This look implies pink or raspberry lip gloss and daily styled makeup.

Passionate Empire look

If you prefer the good retro mix of empire gowns and the glam of the 30’s and 40’s, you will love the romantic empire gown in red, be sure of that! This dress will look splendid on brunettes with pale porcelain skin and hazelnut eyes. To emphasize your empire passionate beauty you will want to apply only transparent eye shadow and black volumizing mascara. Such modest makeup means you will need to accentuate another part of your face… the lips! Apply rubin red lipstick and try not to use lip liners! (use lip liners only if you absolutely need to correct the shape of your lips).

Diaghilev’s Black Swan

For the ones who love the black swan style and the Paris Russian seasons of the 10’s-20’s, may dawn the stylish ballerina dress in black. It looks both mystical and glamorous and will look great on ash blondes, brunettes and even red headed gals. You will need to apply peach or pink transparent foundation to your face, champagne or ash-rose gloss. The lips are in shadow which means you should accentuate your eyes. Use a thick eyeliner pencil and false lashes and you’ll get the best retro look you’ve ever had!

The passionate Tango style of the 40’s

Want to look passionate like an Argentinean performer? Wish to look like Evita? To reveal your passionate nature you must wear the lace vintage dress by Nataya styled as a tango gown. The makeup may be similar to that of the Empire gal but in this case use a little more natural and less pale foundation as a basic facial tone.
