Congratulations to Dark Horse Vintage (DHV) for celebrating your 1st Anniversary .I am so happy for you!

On 1st August 2016, DHV celebrated their first year anniversary and held a Best Dressed Competition whereby Cindy was selected as the winner and won a bag full of vintagetastic items including a vintage style makeover and photoshoot. The makeover was sponsored by Makeup by Benecia as a gift to her childhood friend for achieving another milestone in her business. Makeup by Benecia- Makeup Artist Singapore is also the official makeup artist for DHV.

Enjoy some of the backstage slide show below. Love the vibrant retro outfit that Cindy is wearing.

Here’s the final makeup outlook for Cindy. Retro styled makeup with pin up hairstyle. I used a pair of dramatic faux eyelashes on her to have a bigger eye effect. See the difference in the before (left) and after (right) picture. I personally love the pin up hairstyle, two lovely flower like hairstyle at the right side of Cindy’s hair. Jasmine from DHV love the hairstyle too. Her compliments, “Well done on the vintage hairstyles.”


All ready for the outdoor shoot now :). Happy girls are the prettiest!
