Retro Makeup: Techniques for Applying the Vintage Look as a companion book to the internationally successful Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Step-by-Step Techniques. The formative years of the 1920s, ‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s really developed makeup most and it became what we are familiar with today. Each of these decades had its own style of makeup; its own lip shapes, eye makeup, rouge colors, etc. This book shows these changes over the years and provides easy-to-follow steps and guidance in recreating a vintage face.

This 104-page full-color book starts with some history of makeup during the Victorian and Edwardian Eras. It then goes into practical techniques for applying makeup to help better use the information provided in the proceeding chapters. Then it jumps into full details about makeup styles during the 1920s, ‘30s, ‘40, ‘50s and ‘60s
with each decade having its own dedicated chapter. Each decade details historical events and innovations in products that were affecting makeup trends, popular shapes, and colors.

Also in each decade are start-to-finish instructions on various makeup looks made popular by movie stars, models and beauty magazines of the time.
