Classic looks on Different Races

Anybody else love the classic looks of Old Hollywood? The perfect Audrey Hepburn wing, the lusciously red Elizabeth Taylor Red, all shaped beauty in America for the longest time, so much so that in this age of individualism and inclusion, we still sometimes hark back to the classics. But as a young Latina women with skin that changes color depending on the season and whether I remembered to wear sunscreen before going outside, I find it challenging to draw inspiration from the looks that I see from some of my favorite fashion icons. I'm only now discovering color theory and that an orangy red is better than true red on my skin tone, and that if I want to have subtle wing I got to do some serious eyelid maneuvering. I am mostly a make up minimalist, but there are times I want to have that starlet look going, anyone feel me? I love that in recent years we have seen a broader range of make up influencers from all walks of life, yet I still haven't seen much representation for us non-white Latino/as, those of us that aren't sure if we have any European blood in us. Is there someone out there that looks like me that can give me some tips?
