VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

i have a secret love of watching vintage beauty ads, but i just came across these tutorials and i had to share. i can't get enough. i love how some advice is clearly very dated, and some is undeniably timeless !

Not a vintage video or tutorial but loook at the fierce makeup in the 'too much' music video

I remember graduating high school thinking that Spice Girls were retro, what does that even say about now?! 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

not quite vintage, but in my world definitely retro. I HAD THIS LIPSTICK. no idea what color, but given all i wore in my early makeup days was uber nudes or pale baby pinks, i imagine it was something of the latter.

 

MAYBELLINE wet shine lipstick (early 00s ?)

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

ok in the far less cynical beauty advert world, this N.7 ad from 1986 is legit fun.

is 2001 vintage ? nah. but maybe slightly retro to our aging eyes Smiley Wink this commercial was brought to my attention, and i'm highly amused by it because seeing the packaging took me down a nostalgia spiral, as i used this foundation (surprising, as until LOREAL true match launched, i could never find a drugstore foundation that matched my skintone). i don't remember anything about this foundation other than that distantly familiarity of the packaging of a much-used product Smiley Happy

 

Maybelline Ever Fresh Foundation (feat. sarah michelle gellar)

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

I remember that commercial; and purchasing the foundation, as well. Geez that makes me feel old..lol! 😊

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

perhaps the most famous of the chanel no. 5 commercials. this one is from 1986, and brought a renewed attention and boost to nina simone's career (for the song featured). 

 

1986

 

 

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

i find this one highly amusing because this is the toothpaste i remember my mom always using--i'm pretty sure she still does ! so now i'm wondering if she's been using it since the 70s !

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

NEVER FORGET: TOPSY TAIL ! (1993).

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

As a kid I wanted a Topsy Tail so bad that my sister and I made me one out of a hanger!  Not the most comfortable thing but it worked!  Good find Jem.

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

japanese, 1968. AMAZING.

I love you @jemly for this thread. 

I particularly love this video, especially when one says "when spring comes, be like little children!".
