1930's makeup.

Think Jean Harlow, Claudette Colbert, Dorothy Lamour and you have 1930's beauty!

I could have lived in this era for the fact heavy lashes were a statement! The overall look was quite elegant and sophisticated featuring a soft complexion and often a sculptured pink blush.
The brows were extremely thin, very rounded, even shaved off, then thinly drawn on with a pencil. Eyeshadow was very blended and eye colour played a huge part in the shade selection. In the evenings shimmering shadows were applied from the upper eyelid right up to the eyebrow and daytime saw blues, bright violet, green, brown and orchid. 

For lips the shade of choice was raspberry, reds and oranges and painted on creating a fuller illusion from the bow.

Another Dior modern version......they nail it everytime!
