We recently stumbled upon this eye-opening make-up tutorial from the 1940s! We’re smitten with the instrumental background music, all of the charming face illustrations, and of course, the narrator’s prim and polished elocution. On the other hand, whoever said having a round, a square, or a long face was such a bad thing?! And if you’re inclined to rock straight, blunt bangs with a square face, we say more power to you! In today’s modern world, we’ve (hopefully) come to recognize beauty in all face shapes, skin tones, and sizes, as well as in a variety of make-up applications and hair styles. However, we’re still downright intrigued by this retro tutorial’s take on accentuating the features of individual face shapes.
Do any of these tips or suggestions ring true to you?
