What Classic makeup Looks Do You Like?

from any era, i really like the makeup looks from the 60's, (bold eyes and pale lips) what are some of your favorite retro looks?

Re: What Classic makeup Looks Do You Like?

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. 


Favorite line - "You know how to whistle don't you?  Just put your lips together and blow..."

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.

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