Hello, beauties, and welcome back to our blog. Halloween is just a few weeks away and we’re sure many of you have already started planning out your costumes. For those of you who want to dress up as something a little different this year, we have just the solution! As Peoria’s eye extension experts, we LOVE the classic glamour of Hollywood stars from the Golden Age of film. The queens of the silver screen were some of Hollywood’s most beautiful and most iconic women cherished for their acting talents, impeccable beauty, and daring fashion sense. In part one of our short blog series, we looked at some of Hollywood’s greatest stars for costume inspiration, including Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Jean Harlow, and more. You may want to read part one if you haven’t done so already. Let’s look at a few more of Hollywood’s gems who would be excellent to dress up as this Halloween.
Julie Newmar is one of the most beautiful actresses to have ever graced the silver screen. She is most memorable for her role as Catwoman in the “Batman” television series, but she is also known for her supernatural roles in such creepy shows like the “Twilight Zone” in which she played the Devil. Whether you want to dress up as Newmar on the red carpet or as Catwoman, the characters she played and her gorgeous personal style make for, in the words of Catwoman, a “purrfect” costume. Just make sure to get those cat-eye lashes no matter which style you go for.
Dressing up as an Egyptian princess is a favorite Halloween costume, but you could give this look a twist by going as Elizabeth Taylor in “Cleopatra” (1963). With thick, black brows, dramatic indigo blue eyeshadow from lid to brow, the black liner around the entire eye complete with sharp extending flares, and of course, the thickest, blackest eyelashes, her makeup alone is worth it. She also wears many different garments which gives you a lot of options as far as the dress goes.
If you want to keep it simple yet stunning, go for the classic Grace Kelly look this Halloween. Whether you’re going to a party with a 1950s theme, a party with a horror or thriller movie theme, or a western-themed Halloween party, she played many memorable roles throughout the 50s with many styles to choose from. Her personal style is just as iconic as those of the characters she played. Afterall, she was a princess.
Maybe you’re going to a 1940s ball this Halloween and want to dress up as a classy pinup girl. Rita Hayworth was the “It girl” of 1940s Hollywood that extended on for 37 years! She was also one of the most glamorous with long, perfect waves in her hair, a stunning smile, and sweeping lashes that complimented her sparkling eyes. If you’re looking for a costume set in the 1940s, she’s your gal.
Sophia Loren got her start playing lead roles in numerous Italian films before coming to Hollywood where she became one of Paramount’s and Hollywood’s biggest stars. She starred in leading roles in American cinema with such names as Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, and Charlton Heston in the 1950s and 60s. She is one of the most beautiful actresses to have ever graced the movie screen and remains so today, defying her age with her sensual style. With thick, wavy hair, golden skin, strong brows, and cat eyes which are accentuated by luscious eyelashes, the characters she played or even her personal style would make an excellent costume this Halloween.
