MAKE-UP TIMELINE – The Makeup Look from 1910’s to 1950’s

Further to the last big post on the history of Glamour Makeup, here is a visual representation or
Makeup Timeline from the film The Powder and the Glory.
It serves as a great vintage makeup guide.

The Powder & the Glory, a 90-minute documentary narrated by Jane Alexander, tells the story of two of the first highly successful women entrepreneurs.Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein. One hundred years ago these women immigrated to America and, starting with next to nothing, created what is today the $150 billion global health and beauty industry.

  1. The blush in the 1950's makeup is in the wrong position. It should be high up on the cheekbones.

  2. i love how different each look is! though i have to say, it's hard to beat the 50s for sheer prettiness.

  3. Fascinating post honey. Thanks for the sweet comments and for following me! I have been following you for a while now. Love your blog too! Happy "hump" day. Kori xoxo

  4. I have been wanting to watch The Powder & the Glory since it first aired! I can't seem to find it on the Internet or on my TV :(

    Very cool visuals!

  5. I'm absolutely fascinating by this documentary on the timeline of 20th century make-up, thank you dearly for blogging about, and bringing, it to my attention.

    Wishing you a gorgeous Wednesday, sweet dear!
