Emma Roberts burning red hot in her Besame lipstick.
Besame Cosmetics are a luxury vintage makeup brand born from the mind of artist and cosmetic historian Gabriela Hernandez. Founded in 2004, Gabriela channelled her fascination with art and history into the creation of her dream makeup brand and Besame was born.
Taking influence from the 1920's all the way up to the 1950's, Besame are a brand set to bring out the inner diva in all of us, with a moral stand point that focuses on the empowerment of women and the support of their natural elegance and beauty. It brings together the cutting edge technology of the 21st century with a historic plateau of retro colours, handcrafted details in the form of vintage packaging and an undeniable understanding of the ethos behind old-school Hollywood glamour.
Now available in the UK/EU for the first time, LondonEdge are beyond excited to welcome Besame Cosmetics to February's show for the first time.
Creating quite the stir in their native home of Southern California, Besame are seeing a rapid rise to stardom with the help of a huge presence on the award winning FX show, American Horror Story: Freakshow. Not only do their products adorning the dressing tables of a two-headed Sarah Paulson, but the likes of Oscar award winning lead actress & the "freakshow mother" Jessica Lange, and MTV's teen choice award winner Emma Roberts can be seen sporting their "Cherry Red" lipsticks in more episodes than we can count.
Creating products that help production designers and makeup artists accurately re-create looks from a specific time period is no easy feat, but Besame's dedication to fuelling the retro Hollywood fire they adore so much makes them well and truly a cut above the rest.
Make sure to visit Besame at February's edition of LondonEdge to view their wholesale collection and don't forget to keep an eye out for them on the big (and little) screens... We expect these retro heavyweights to bring a splash of vintage glamour to a movie star (or vintage vixen) near you.
