The Gilded Age

The Gilded Age




The gilded age marks a time period when economic growth was high and the nation was living in its glory. Our economy may not be wonderful now, but I see today as the gilded age of fashion. Today, new experiments with crazy colored hair and wild make-up have been hitting the runways. A new trend shows artists playing with imitation gold leaf, using it as make-up or hair accents. I immediately fell in love with this idea and decided to try it out myself. I'm still perfecting the application of the gold leaf, but for now burt's bees gave my eyelids enough stick for it to stay on all day. I encourage others to give this a try!
