I wouuld love to try it out. Sometimes I feel so far from that kind of girl, but yes it sure would be fun to be all glammed up like betty, freshening up my pout!

I love it, Vivienne! I must confess I use powder for my make-up all the time, I've never used liquid make-up. I think it's habit from watching my mom get ready for her evenings out. And she definitely got all dolled up like that in the 50s. So fun! Love the wallpaper and the sconces! :)

Yes, I wish this was my life. I've often thought a great title for a book would be the 21st century guide to 1950's living. LOVE this painting!
