Makeup In The 1920’s

Face

Prior to the 1920’s, a very pale, pasty face was popular, however changes in social attitudes in the 20’s  made it acceptable for women to be outdoors so the face shade changed to a more natural hue.It was rumoured that Coco Chanel fell asleep in the sun and made the tan look very popular!!! Having rouge toned cheeks was also very rampant.

Lips

For the lips, lLipstick was applied in a curved shape on the upper lip, this was fashionable and was referred to as  “Cupid’s-Bow”. Also the lower lip was exaggerated a bit and the width of the lips was de-emphasized a little, red coloured lipstick was usually used and the texture was matte.Beauty marks were occassionally used

Eyes

For the eyes, mascara was avaliable but only in  cake, tube and wax(it was called eyelash darkner),this was applied to a brush. There was even waterproof formulations available.To curl and lengthen lashes there was a curler called the Kurlash. Unfortunately, it was very difficult to use.

For the eyes, Kohl eyeliner was smudged over the entire lid with petroleum jelly. Grays and browns were very popular.

Eyebrows

Eyebrows were usually very thin and almost invisible. They also sloped, downward sloping and inked with black or brown eyeliner.

1920's eyebrows

One lady that really looked good in the 20’s was Josephine Baker. She was one of the best-known entertainers in both France and much of Europe in the 1920’s. Her makeup was always intact.

Rihanna launches own fragrance

Rihanna in rebl fleur fragrance Ad

I know you must all be tired of celebrities bringing out their own fragrances..but it seems Rihanna doesn’t  mind not being ‘the only girl’ with her own fragrance line as she has joined the many celebrities, including her supposed best friend katy perry(https://skinmagz.wordpress.com/2010/11/19/katy-perry-launches-own-fragrance/) by releasing own fragrance..

The fragrance is named after her grammatically incorrect tattoo..“rebelle fleur”(In French, “rebellious flower” actually translates into “fleur rebelle.”but her tatoo says “rebelle fleur”)..which she had done August last year.

Rihanna's Reb'l Tattoo

She told People magazine the name was inspired by her grandma in Barbados who called Rihanna “her Rebel Flower”.

It’s being described as “like heels with a short, flirty dress.” (The bottle itself is in the shape of a high heel.)

The fragrance is a reflection of her tropical roots as the smell consists of  a fruity mix of red berries, plum, peach, coconut water, violet and Hawaiian hibiscus..

fragrance bottle and packaging

it will be available internationally in the spring of this year..but first only at Macys at the end of this month.
