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 ! 

 

1930s

 

1940s

 

1950s (i'm having trouble finding a proper 50s one)

 

1960s

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

lipstick range called 'sweet young creams' by max factor, 1970. 

colors very much of their time.

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

slightly bizarre ad for MAX FACTOR aquafactor eye makeup 1969

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

@jemly Great thread!  I can't believe I haven't seen it yet!

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

SHISEIDO beauty tools ad, 1980

 

 

bonus: puppets ! SHISEIDO bath. 1980.

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

a series of very beautiful vintage japanese SHISEIDO ads. appear to be from between the 1980s - early 1990s (the very last brief ad appears to be an ad for a hand cream that is not shiseido, and appears to be newer).

 

you don't have to know japanese to be able to appreciate the beauty in these.

 

 

and then a very intense SHISEIDO 1985 ad featuring kabuki makeup and application.

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.

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

 ummmmmmmm. what exactly are we talking about here ? lipstick orrrrr...... ?

 

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

REVLON 1980 soft lash "sponge on" mascara.

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

Great find, I love watching these ads! 😊

Re: VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS !

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 !
