Flashback Friday: Go for the Gold…Silver and Bronze
December 6, 2013 2:00pm
Flashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Amy Wesson
The Moment: Heavy Medals
The Motivation: It may only be December, but we already have Olympic fever. So it was with joy that we discovered this image from a 1996 issue of British Vogue. Model Amy Wesson sports gold on her lids, silver on her lower lash lines, and a shimmery bronze across her mouth—the same three colors that athletes hope to wear around their necks come February. Try this trio at an upcoming holiday fete and you’re guaranteed to stand apart from the red-lipped competition.
