Since it all has once been there already- if it’s the slim, or bold eyebrows, the soft or colourful looks- the past allows us to look at it as a book of styles that we can pick our very own from. Every face shape, figure and type, can be celebrated with just the right influence of all the exciting styles in history. Yet, we have the freedom to mix them with modern aspects, and go on our very individual style adventure.
In the 1920s, everything 'girly' was considered trendy and stylish. A doll face was desired. So much, that natural shapes of lips and eyes, were sometimes drastically overdrawn. The rouge was set round and cute, just like a doll would have looked. Yet, there was a natural approach to style as well. And often, the ladies didn't use color on a daily basis, as it was still something seen rater in the theater, than the mom-and-pop-shop.
What about the 1930s for example?! A heart-shaped face was desired. The colors already more daring than in the decades before. Lean eye brows and a clear lip structure were signature features of the look.
In the 1940s, the ladies proudly wore their 'victory red' lips, combines with with soft eye makeup and pin curled hair.
The 1950s meant new beginnings in various aspects of life. New products and- with them- trends were introduced. The skirts went wider, the hair a little shorter and the eyeliner bolder.
