Retro Makeup: Techniques for Applying the Vintage Look

Makeup is so common today that many of us do not give a second thought to its beginnings. During the formative years of the early and mid-twentieth century, cosmetics developed greatly and became what we are most familiar with today.

Each decade of this time period had its own style of makeup; its own signature lips, eye makeup, rouge techniques, etc. This book shows the changes in makeup styles over these decades and provides practical, easy steps and guidance in recreating a vintage face. By using the trends in shape and color of a specific decade, emulating a time period is even easier and better replicated.
