Beauty Throughout the Ages


For me, the most interesting and entertaining trends are the ones influenced by past eras. In the fashion and beauty industry, knowing about the history and culture that these eras left is key to create looks that flatter and inspire others in the future.

Who considers himself an artist, should know that a great deal of our inspiration are trends left behind by our ancestors.

These are some tips to get the looks:

For a 1920s look: Check our Louise Brooks, Ciara Bow and Marion Davies; they where some of the most iconic girls of that time and where the pioneers of the famous bobbed hair with finger waves. With today’s conveniences you don’t have to have short hair to wear a nice finger wave look, now you can achieve this look using hot curling irons. To complete this look, choose a dark lipstick.

For a 1950s look: Go for a more pale and pastel hues; use delicate foundations using powders to set everything. Use pinks and reds for lipstick. Little eye shadow, concentrate on your lashes with a great mascara.


For a 1960s look: add some drama to your eyes and go for a paler lip color. Get inspired with personalities like Twiggy and Edie Sedwick, who are known for sporting this look.


For a 1970s look: Have fun with your hair by doing some braids or go for a sleek hairstyle. As for the make-up, try to keep it very simple, neutral colors and fresh skin. The trend was to draw more attention to the dramatic eyes so they choose lip gloss or frosted lipstick in very muted shades of pink, peach or even nude.
