To military fortieth alcohol and oil go on needs of the front therefore cosmetic production is sharply reduced. However already by the end of war the tendency to bright, frankly sexual, to a make-up - as they say, without riddles and hints is planned. Now on a woman`s face everything has to be bright and noticeable - eyes, eyebrows, cheekbones, lips... However it was no “carnival“ chic of 1980 - x - the make-up still adheres to natural shades: lips have to be red, eyelashes - black, and is ruddy - pink.

Among cosmetics lipstick which any woman respecting herself does not leave is in the lead at this time. Lips lead round a pencil of saturated scarlet or pink color now and make up them with the same color.

In 1940 - e the big scarlet mouth is appreciated so that the contour is outlined several millimeters more widely than a natural shape of lips. In 50 - e the form becomes more natural, but not less defiant. For example, Marilyn Monroe considered the lips insufficiently large therefore not only brightly made up them, but also slightly slightly opened a mouth on fotossesiya that only added to her image of sexuality.

However, bright lipstick was considered decent only for mature women therefore girls - to teenagers should make up lips in more reserved of tone - beige, peach, pink.

In 1940 - 50 - e years the thin eyebrows which are pulled out by a thread stop being actual. In fashion dense wide dark eyebrows which direct shadows and a pencil and pull out so that their tip was a little bent up. Many try to give them the form of “lodge“.

Eyelashes also have to look dark and dense. To reach this effect, ink is put in several layers (the first layer, then powder, and from above the second layer). In 1958 Elena Rubenstein lets out ink in the form of the cylinder with a brush - the brush and it becomes more convenient to make up eyelashes.

As for shadows, the space under eyebrows is painted with light shades, and an eyelid - dark smoky. In an eyeliner the main emphasis is placed on an upper eyelid. Contours of an eyeliner are usually extended in arrows - or easy and graceful, or bent by the thick line (effect of “a cat`s eye“).

The person had to have light, soft, natural color therefore powder of a peach shade in tone to skin is popular. Women continue to emphasize cheekbones with blush of pink color. From depth of the 18th century the fashion comes to coquettish front sights over a lip again (to the same Monro`s imitation).

Next decade the relation to a make-up changed. First signs of changes became in the middle of 1950 - x Audrey Hepburn is an actress young, fragile and elegant. It fascinated the audience, though was not similar on other movie stars - magnificent, corporal and frank.

And in the sixtieth when the youth openly declared the rights, the fashion is filled with a spontaneity and energy of youth. Then there is the first cosmetics for teenagers, and many women try to reach effect of widely open eyes - childly surprised and the innocent.

Everything is used - gray shadows, dense black ink in several layers, long shooters - swallows and, of course, huge velvet eyelashes (including consignment notes). Sometimes, to make eyes it is more, the top eyelashes tighten up tweezers, and lower draw a pencil directly on skin - far away from their natural line of growth (see an image of supermodel of Tviggi).

Somewhere at the same time the first color ink is issued. And if the Revion company offered only ink of blue color, then Max Factor let out four shades at once - blue, green, golden and lavender. Especially demanded the multi-colored, poured and fancy make-up becomes in the second half of 1960 - x - with blossoming of “space“ and psychodelic fashion. Extravagant women of fashion even paste pastes on eyelashes, creating effect of “space dust“.

Huge popularity among women is gained also by sunglasses of a grotesque form. For example, Audrey Hepburn popularized so-called veyfarer (English. “Wanderer“), which her heroine carried in to - f “A breakfast at Tiffany“ (1961). It were completely plastic points of a trapezoid form. Later they were modified in not less popular “by cat - eye“ (“a cat`s eye“) with the extended and pointed top ends.

And at the end of 1960 - x, thanks to emergence of extremely light polymeric glasses, there are huge round points closing nearly a floor - faces - so-called. “Dragonflies“, they are “Flies“, they are “Grandees“... They say that the style 60 icon - x - Jacqueline Kennedy - with their help hid the too widely placed eyes.

But we will return to a make-up. In 1960 - e years there is a tendency to place emphasis on some one part of the face - either on lips, or on eyes.

Most of women preferred to allocate eyes therefore bright lips get out of fashion. For the first time in the course lipstick of faded light shades - it is pale - pink, beige and even white (the last the izobretatelnitsa spread pass - skirts - Mary Kuant). At the same time the planimetric pencil for lips is not used, from - for what they seem slightly turned out.

Skin is given light equal tone too, and cheekbones emphasize with light blush which quite often podpudrivat from above (that the flush appeared as if from within).

Playfulnesses and spontaneities to female shape of 1960 - x give also fervent turned-up noses.

Despite the aforesaid, you should not think that the girl`s cult - the teenager forced out an image of the magnificent woman (to remember enough movie stars of such movie stars, as Sophia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida and Ursula Anders).
