1930's makeup adverts, vintage cosmetic inspiration and some strong looks!
I've always loved vintage cosmetic adverts and at the moment have a particular fondness for 1930's ones. I love the illustrations – they add so much to that dreamy quality. I've been wanting to recreate some of these makeup (and hair) looks for the longest time but never seem to quite get around to it; of course, the fact that they are such otherworldly drawings, and that they aren't exactly subtle day time styles, doesn't help! But I am going to make the effort now, decade by decade, starting with these ones from my pinterest. Aren't they gorgeous? I might even do one today! Which one is your favourite? And do you have a favourite makeup era?
