Courtney Couture: A Vintage Hollywood Icon Collection

If you’re a fan of Beauty by Charlie or Kiss & Makeup you may have seen our newest matte collection. Courtney Couture is a collection of mattes made specifically for Courtney’s Vogue contest.

Hollywood Icons

The collection features 4 matte shadows and 2 lipsticks. The colors were requested by Courtney of Kiss & Makeup, Elizabeth of Dotty Ann, and Lacy (who’s been poking me for mattes for ages). A big thank you to all of them for the inspiration!

To name this collection we had vintage Hollywood movie stars in mind. I still believe nothing says old school glamour like a classic Hollywood starlet. Audrey Hepburn was always the height of class and a lady, Marilyn Monroe was an iconic beauty, Elizabeth Taylor was gorgeous and bold, Ava Gardner was charming and mysterious, Grace Kelly was her namesake; graceful, and Sophia Loren was a fiery, exotic beauty.

I don’t post here no where near as often as I’d like to. I believe that’s simply because I don’t know what to post. I’m always trying to figure out what everyone would prefer to read, or find helpful. Instead I just don’t post at all. I plan to just post more of what’s on my mind and what I’m working on, rather than waiting for a brilliant idea that requires lots of research and planning to write about.

In other news, the photo in this post is of the new Halloween collection, inspired by the new TV show American Horror Story. I’ll be posting photos of each color on our Facebook Fanpage this week. I hope you’ll click over and help us pick out names for them!
