Decade Inspiration: The 1940s

6 Oct

The 1940s fashion focused much on more fitted clothing, perfectly sculpted hair, and perfectly placed makeup. I think women could learn a lot from the trends of the 1940s,especially make up. Today lots of women focus on spray tans and too much eye make- up, but in the 40s women embraced their natural skin tone and put much emphasis on the lips. Instead of always piling on the eyeliner, try a light eye make- up, but a bold lip color. I’m not suggesting walking out in the middle of the day with bright red lipstick, but a tinted lip balm can make your lips stand out without looking overdone.

The dresses in the 1940s were gorgeous. They had great color, detail, voluminous skirts or a fitting silhouette. Women today can still wear dresses like this without looking old- fashioned or out- of- date.

    *I definitely agree with embracing the more natural look when it comes to make up. I think too much attention is given to the make up itself, rather than emphasizing the persons features. What are your favorite brands and make up tools when trying to achieve this look?
