Feel special with Bésame cosmetics


Every woman wants to feel beautiful and be seen as a someone really special. But today's beauty world (which is full of Kim Kardashian, fake eyelashes, bronzers and hightlighers) creates the weird copies of them. When a woman puts her makeup off and then is looking into the mirror, she will suddenly see a totally different person. It is really interesting that we want to have a respect of ourselves, but we do not show the real face of us to the each other.
Do you remember that admirable era of Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn or Elizabeth Taylor? They became style icons because of their individuality- simple elegance, striking makeup and breathtaking charm. Being special means being yourself. And that is the main idea, what most women do not realize.

I have always admired the fresh beauty of the 1940s and 1950s, where women looked glamorous and sexy, even though they did not use so much makeup  as we do now.

This glam era brought makeup to a new level of femininity. Despite war rationing, women wanted to be still attractive and their red lips and cat eyes makeup is very notorious. Who does not like the Pin-Ups?!

Another reason why I love the vintage beauty and especially its products is their design, which is so simple and luxurious, as well. When I heard about Gabriela Hernandez and her unique Bésame Cosmetics company based in Los Angeles, I was speechless. This interesting woman was always fascinated by her grandmother's sophisticated beauty routine and has a life-long love affair with vintage beauty. With her creative backround, historical know-how, and cherished memories of her grandmother's makeup, she developed the beauty brand of her dreams, filled with rich, historical details in wearable long-lasting formulas. She identified key characteristics - igredients, colours, formulations and scents- that represented the strengths of the past and withstood the test of time.

" Handcrafted with care to offer something truly different and classic."

Bésame caters to retro fans by providing them lipsticks, powders, and mascaras inspired from the 1920s to the 1970s. They recreate the formulas and pigments from the bygone eras using natural ingredients and packaged in such a way that applying the products also take you back in time. When you step into the store, you will have goosebumps and fell in love immediately!

Bésame products have been specifically designed to compete with the high performance standards of today. Effective ingredients (such as Beewax, fine Mica, vegetable waxes and Kaolin) are used to formulate exceptional products that are rich, satiny, contain indelible pigments and have true staying power. The design of all products is safe and easy to wear for people with sensitive skin. All colours and textures are matched to the original products that inspire them, for example lipsticks from the 1920s are the exact shades worn at that time.

Their Decades of Fragrance Collection is the fruit of six years of research and exploration by founder Gabriela, to bring to the customer the essence of each decade featured in the collection. Each perfume excract is meticulously crafted from precious essential oils and natural vegan alcohol.

Their classic bullet shaped semi-matte lipstick contains a combination of beeswax, kaolin, carnauba, and candelilla wax that help it glide on smoothly for an indelible, feather proof look. It literally does not come off until you take it off, while still being a traditional lipstick formula. The custom lipstick design features sharp angles that can be used to both line and fill in lips.

Other daily wear items are the cake mascara- for eyeliner, brow fill and mascara, the vanilla loose powder, cream rouge and blush. Next video tutorials will show you how to apply mentioned products and enjoy every minute with them:

Bésame Cosmetics is not about chasing the latest trends. The collection has been designed to be a solid staple in every woman's makeup wardrobe. Newness is introduced to the line using the wealth of knowledge available through the archives in history. Great news is that Bésame ships internationally via sephora.com! So let's go shopping!
