LOL. why are there so many explosions in the background? It sounded like Michael Bay directed it.

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

ahahahahahhaha

"so smooth"

"so moist"

"so creamy" 

I couldn't stop laughing. xD 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

I had the same reaction. I thought it was pretty suggestive, which made me laugh.

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

I love this thread!

 

 

"Sue avoids red nail polish since it will call attention to her stubby hands...."

ha ha ha

 

The Suwannee Lady...is she not the cutest?

Not from the 40's, but she sure does a great job at emulating it...

I love how the dog is watching and there are cut aways to him in the 60s video. The narrator in that one was so serious and matter of fact about her guidelines. I laughed a bit when she was talking about blemishes and stated "a healthy diet and cleanliness can often prevent them." It made me think of the saying "cleanliness is next to godliness!"

These are darling! Thanks for sharing!

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

oh i like this one because it's a bit of a product-trend right now, such as the NARS shadow pencils, LAURA MERCIER caviar sticks and the CHARLOTTE TILBURY colour chameleon eyeshadow pencils....

Speaking of shadow crayons, I just saw today that L'Oreal came out with new Infallible Shadow Crayons. I'm interested in these because I LOVE the Infallible eye shadows. I guess they came out last month, but I haven't seen them yet in my local stores. Are you a fan of them, Jem?

You bet! I'm probably going to get the rose gold one, the gold, taupe and emerald. I think I have enough points at Walgreens to get a few for free. I'll report back! Smiley Happy

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

This was awesome to watch. And wow, I recognize some of the 60's techniques that Wayne Goss talked about in his YT videos.

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

These are so much fun! I love looking at these videos in addition to vintage paper ads. I used to have a bunch saved, but I must have deleted them. A quick google search yielded these...

a few years ago someone i worked for gave me some edwardian-era harpers magazines (i think one was 1908ish and the other 1912ish ?). they were the most extraordinary things.

I love things like that, jemly! One of my favorite vintage finds is a 1932 edition of the Vogue Book of Beauty. Some of it is still so relevant and accurate, some of it isn't, but it's such an interesting read. I'm at work now, but I can try to post pictures when I'm at home. I also have a 1935 edition of a dress / manners / etiquette book for people in high school, which is equally amazing. Smiley Wink

Wow, I bet! 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

the idea of marketing a specific color in black and white is equally confounding. 

and they're supposedly talking about a proper red color here...not a nude or nude-pink.

 

 

here is the print ad !
