An Interesting Makeup Design... - 07/12/2013

This is probably from a theater magazine circa 1911 (One of my library collection cellphone photos.) The picture itself might be a little older. An interesting job with her makeup here... A lot of illusion in place.  Her lips are rouged, with the lower lip quite de-emphasized -- like she barely covered half the lip with the color. Of her eyepencil, the line is drawn just a bit under her lower eyelids (at a distance this would probably make them look larger), right on the lashline at her upper eyelids with this line extended out a bit past the eye, then another solid line drawn in her crease. Eyeshadow was not marketed in the Victorian/Edwardian era, though some women -- especially actresses -- did use equivalent substances. In fact, the first eyeshadows that were marketed appear to have been cream substances, more like actor's grease-paint which was used by stage folk. It's hard to tell but it looks like she might have a coat of something over her eyelid and swept down under her eye as well.    It should be noted this is probably only a stage actress's makeup -- not something that a regular woman would wear. But still, it's nice to be able to see some of the cosmetic tricks they were putting to use!
