Rose Jackson (34) owns Auckland vintage beauty business Decadia specialising in hair, makeup and style from the 1920s to the 1950s.
MY BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY IS… If you look after goodness and truth, beauty will take care of itself. But a fabulous red lipstick can also work wonders for your soul.
MY HAIRCARE SECRET IS… Wet set pin curls! Instead of damaging my hair with heat and products, I put setting lotion through wet hair at night, roll sections around my fingers, clip them flat to my head with bobby pins and tie a silk scarf over the lot.
THE MUST-HAVE PRODUCTS IN MY MAKEUP BAG ARE… Bésame’s Cherry Red Lipstick, 1930s Mascara and Crimson Rouge (1 & 2). All Bésame products are based on authentic vintage colours and formulations. Also no vintage-loving gal could be without liquid eyeliner. My picks are Rimmel Glam’Eyes or Maybelline New York Master Precise.
MY FAVOURITE BEAUTY TREAT IS… Sleep! I never seem to get enough of it and after years of thinking I could get away with only five or six hours, I have built up a deficit so huge that I don’t imagine I will ever be able to catch up.
MY BIGGEST BEAUTY SIN IS… Not drinking enough water. Terrible, I know!
