Throwback Thursday: Life’s A Beach

-------

Gia-Carangi-Beach-MakeupThrowback Thursday offers the perfect opportunity to pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Gia Carangi

The Moment: Makeup on the Beach

The Motivation: Aah, the joys of summer. While we waxed lyrical last week about the benefits of paring back your makeup during the warmer months, a tinted balm or glossy shadow can go a long way. Should you decide to sport some product at the beach, we suggest taking inspiration from nineties supe Gia Carangi. Although technology has improved since 1980—note the vintage Walkman—seaside beauty essentials have remained shockingly the same. Carangi’s subtle bronze eye shadow and her matching neutral nails and lips seem right on point—and equally attainable: Try the latest from Lipstick Queen, Poppy King’s Endless Summer in Stoked, for similar pout perfection.
