Hello everyone! Recently I have gotten really into pin-up and vintage reproduction fashion. I've done a lot of research on what makes a pin-up outfit, hair, and makeup all that jazz. I've been on a very tight budget recently so, I've been on the lookout for affordable pin-up and vintage reproduction items. The difference between vintage and vintage reproduction is that vintage reproduction is clothing made with higher quality materials that we have today in a vintage style. This can be ideal because real vintage fashion from the 20's - 50's is very fragile because of it's age. Whereas vintage reproduction is made with high quality materials. Vintage reproduction and pin-up fashion can be expensive so, finding affordable items as difficult. Keep in mind that most of these items are usually within the $100 - $200 range. I tried to find items between $15 - $60 which is a lot more affordable!
I really love the aesthetic of vintage makeup, but most vintage reproduction cosmetics companies are expensive (understandably so)... I went looking for vintage style makeup companies that are affordable. This means, it has simple gold, silver or sleek black packaging.
