1920's MAKE-UP

The Roaring Twenties were the time of jazz, short skirts, and free love. 

In 1924, coloured nail polish was introduced and waterproof mascara created by Elizabeth Arden. 

In 1927 Max Factors products, previously used only in film, were commercialised.  

New lipsticks emulsified with saliva called “Rouge Baiser” were created by the French chemist Paul Baudecroux and became the leading lipstick. 

In 1928 powders were micronisated a very fine, dusty texture and instant finish. 

The haircut of the time was boyish and impish with a short bob which framed the face.

Til next time....
