Rouge blush was introduced and was mainly used around the apple of the cheek that showed the circle in pinkish and orangish shades. Bright red lipstick was a must have and most peopled used the lipstick to draw a “cupid's bow” shape to their lips. Starting the 1930’s foundation was introduced and more people wanted to get foundation so that they could look even more pale. Later, even eyebrows were plucked to be high arched and thin. A thin line was drawn on with a special pencil to show a cat eye. In 1950’s was the Rock N’ Roll years, big screen actors like Marilyn Monroe were encouraged to show the perfection and glamour to look flawless. And foundation would be a thicker coat to hide all the imperfections and blemishes that could appear naturally on your face. Now there was thicker and more dramatic eyeliner texture and color on your eye to make it stand out. Make up in the 1990’s was more based on who you looked up to and you would normally follow their makeup trend. Most people would follow the “heroin chic” makeup style which made women have heavy, dark and very smokey colors as their eye makeup. Up until now, your makeup depends on what kind of person you consider yourself.
