For the next segments in my 100 looks in 100 days with the Elf 100pc Marble Eyeshadow Palette I am going back in time and taking you on a journey of makeup through the ages.
Tonight we go way way back into the beginning of the 1900s and to take you back and put my looks into context, it was an exciting time. Max factor had opened his first Los Angeles studio in 1909 and began making waves by creating early screen looks on Hollywood actresses. TL Williams had introduced the first mascara and named it after his sister Mabel, under the brand name Maybelline, after watching her formulate her own mascara using hot coloured wax beads. Women of that era were encapsulated by the big screen, however the products at the time were reserved for screen stars and it wasn’t until the 1920s that the innovations such as mascara, lipstick and eyeshadow that we so easily take for granted, became readily available and common place in women’s handbags.

Until Next Time
