Your recommended makeup color in the 1930s? Here’s a great chart!
It comes out of a vintage beauty school manual I have in my prized collection of vintage beauty books and magazines.
You can see from the title page that this book was first published in 1934.
This makeup chart in the book lays out what was commonly considered the way you should choose your makeup colors. Of course it is impossible to categorize the proper makeup for women so narrowly, but it is an interesting insight into how acceptable blue eyeshadow was! This chart offers different color opinions than other research I’ve done on the time period, but everything is an opinion isn’t it?
