Katharine Hepburn is a fashion icon. She revolutionized women’s wear in her time. Her androgynous look and pantsuits scandalized 1930s Hollywood and were seen as controversial, shocking and according to some, even immoral.

Her mom has an olive skin tone so this is a great pin-up makeup tutorial for mature women with olive skin!
These are the products Kandee the makeup artist used for this pin-up makeup look for mature women:

Honestly, not many of us can say that we don’t need a little “adjusting” to have a shapelier figure. It’s not so much about looking thinner, as it is about selecting the right foundation undergarment to enhance you where you need it.
So you spent a considerable sum of money on a stunning new outfit for a Holiday party, but what you wear underneath is what will make you stand out from the crowd. How many times have you seen a woman in a beautiful dress only to be distracted by unsightly panty lines or the dreaded bra bulge! Shape wear easily eliminates bra bulge, eliminates visible panty lines, soothes thighs, slenderizes the waist and tummy, and more! Gwenyth Paltrow shared that wearing shape wear helped her hide her post-baby extra 10 pounds.
Shape wear is no longer something that only your grandmother owns. Recently celebrities like Katy Perry, Beyonce, Kelly Brook and Lily Allen have all been seen sporting it – and structured 40s style lingerie is the height of fashion so you can easily mix fashion with practicality when buying yours.
Below you’ll find beautiful vintage slips and dressing gowns in the same style as Betty wears in Mad Men’s Season 1 Episode 1!
