The these two extremely rare make-up guides spanning from the early to the late 1930's might fill your Christmas stocking very nicely.


 Found in an Oxford garage sale and lovingly and beautifully restored; Make-up by Virginia Vincent and The Art of Make-up by none other than Max Factor himself.


The 1930s make-up look changed quite dramatically from pencil thin eyebrows and lush expressionist influenced rouges and lip colors of the early 1930s, to a more subtle Hollywood ideal as taught by make-up geniuses such as Max Factor. Learn tips from the master, as taught to Hollywood actresses.

For the early jazz styled 1930s look as typified by Joan Blondell and Myrna Loy and Carole Lombard to a more ethereal make-up look in the late thirties as modeled by Bette Davis, Vivien Leigh and Merle Oberon. The differences and techniques on 1930s vintage makeup looks are subtle but fascinating to read. Many of the accepted ideas of contouring and highlighting, were only understood by a limited few, and every woman jumped on manuals such as these in order to emulate their favourite actress or feminine ideal.
