1940s, hands down.  I love the simple eye and full brows.  Oh and the hair!

I love the makeup from the 1940s and 1950s. I like the smoky eyes from the Marlene Dietrich movies of the 1930s. I like the Cupid's bow play on lip shape in  the 1920s....maybe this is why Betty Boop is still popular today. I also loved Brooke Sheild's full eyebrows from the 1980s. I think thin eyebrows are just aging for for most face structures.

I love Lauren Bacall's simple eye and bold full lips from the 40's and early 50's  She spoke with her eyes and heavy eye makeup would have been a distraction.

I was born in the wrong era.  These looks are beautiful.  I love the styles from the 40's, 50's and 60's.  I can't pick a favorite.

I loved Dorothy Dandridge's makeup and hairstyle from her Carmen Jones publicity still.  I especially love the hairstyle, which looks as if it was created with pin curls, and her makeup looks flawless.

 

Such a timeless beauty!

My mother (86), in lieu of getting a perm, still puts sets her hair in pin curls at night.  She puts rollers in the front to create bangs.  Her curls are so pretty and soft and less frizzy and tight than perm curls.  I remember when I was little, she used to finger plat her hair in waves starting at her side part and coming down her face.  I'm glad she quit doing that!

I'm a big fan of makeup looks from the 1950s. Winged black liner, false lashes, red lipstick, and a matte porcelain doll looking complexion.

Hi Tashalicious, I really like the 1940s era makeup.  Simple eyes with black liquid liner, defined brows, & a bold red lip.  I think this classic style looks great on everyone! :smileyhappy: -Laura
