  • So for our decades series last year we traveled back through time until the 1960s - so I decided to go back another decade and put together an entire look based on the fashion, hair and makeup trends of the 50s! What do you think of the finished look?A big thank you to Kayley Melissa and Gabriela Hernandez for helping us out with our midcentury makeover!Kayley Melissa:https://www.youtube.com/kayleymelissaBesame:https://www.instagram.com/besamecosme...https://besamecosmetics.com/Stores Visited:What Katie Did Vintage Lingeriehttps://www.whatkatiedid.com/Unique Vintagehttps://www.unique-vintage.com/Playclothes VintageSafiya's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/safiyany/Twitter: https://twitter.com/safiyajnFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/safnygaard/This video is NOT sponsored!SOURCESUltimate Fashion Historyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_lJ_...Survey Of Historic CostumeClassic BeautyMUSICVia Audio NetworkAssistant Editors: Emily Linden & Claire Wiley

    I hope she does this all the way to the 1700s and walks around wearing a powdered wig yelling “THE BRITISH ARE COMING” 😂

    I really love that she puts research into her videos. It’s not just “oh, this looks old. Let’s use it.” She cares about her content☺️

    Can we say that the style of the 50s were so pretty, but the morals were questionable.

    This was wonderful.
    I was born in the mid-50's. My mother was in her mid-20s then. I remember her in the late-50's "putting herself together" before my father came home.
    I remember the smell of the pancake makeup, being yelled at to be quiet while she tried to draw on her eyebrows and eye-liner. Careful choice of the dress and matching shoes. If they were going out, she always had her gloves and scarf. She finished it all off with "Lily of the Valley" cologne and her rhinestones.
    I thought she was magnificent.
    Thanks for the memories. Mom passed away a decade ago, but my favorite picture of her is a small portrait of her in 1950's high style. All done up like you in this video, but with her rhinestones and a little Mona Lisa smile.

    I'm not joking but Safiya looks exactly how my grandmother would dress up in the 50s. She used to be a model for a small high end clothing store in Corpus Christi and would always get free clothes from them. She's 83 now and still a gorgeous woman.

    Imagine in 60 years someone will recreate a 2014 look
    "And here we have some very very strechy ridiculously skinny jeans, and a very oversized hoodie wich has the word 'yolo' on it. And not to forget the humongous phone case and the airmax"

    I wonder what people from the 50s would think of today's fashion...
