1940′S MAKEUP GUIDE by dawnee

Here is an overview to 1940′s Beauty Tips….my next post a list of exactly what EVERYONE will need (stage makeup), along with any special recommendations!
 
The authentic appearance for beauty and makeup style  in the 1940′s was allure !
 
An adorable and strong mouth and arresting eyebrows, moving away from the pencil thin art deco look of the 1930′s.
 
Eye makeup coverage was kept to the minimum with little shadow.
Image  
1940′s Makeup – Foundation Use a foundation that is one shade darker than your skin tone.
Powder Loose or compact, this helps set your make up to stay put under the hot lights of the stage.
Rouge Red with pink undertones, Pink with fuchsia undertones . Start applying to the top of the cheekbone and brush gently towards the temples. This creates a triangle effect !  

Image

1940′s  Eye makeup Styles Eyebrow pencils in brown will give those eyebrows a pronounced arch! Use matte shadow in a colors near to your own and complete with some vaseline for a shimmering Hollywood sheen.

Eye shadow was subtle, and stayed close to neutral or earth tones. Shadow the socket but but avoid the brow bone. Complete with dark brown liquid eyeliner on the upper lids, and sweep up in an arch for that glamorous touch  and then loads of black mascara for the top lashes..

  Lipstick Shades of the 1940′s The 1940s was the golden era for a strong lip color.

The following colors would work for your day/night look:
  • Light Red lip color
  • Fuchsia lip color
  • Pink Red lip color
  • Orange Red lip color
  • Deep Red or Cherry lips—ONLY FOR EMILY ARDEN OR FAIRTONES
Image

  1940′s Nail Polish Shades You may wear nail polish (I don’t get to say this often!), but make sure that it is neat and not chipped. It was popular to match your nail polish to your outfit, so navy blue, fuschia, even green, were seen. However, the most standard color for Hollywood (and all who loved those stars) was red!

New costumes from old! by dawnee

Start with the usual suspects–an ugly beaded sweater vest, an old prom dress, a red velveteen jacket, trim and fabric.

Spend 4 hours beading Queen’s dress and 6 hours constructing King’s tunic, then show to happy kids!  These are for our middle school production of Once Upon a Mattress–hence the mouse and hawk theme for the cursed King.

Now, only 68 more kids to costume!!



What I did instead of what I should…. by dawnee

Or, how to avoid tears in the morning of the kid.

So, last night my 5th grader tells me that she needs to construct a box to hold her valentines. No problem. It also must have a theme. What? Okay. We pull out a shoebox and paper and stickers. I suggest ‘Around the World’, because we have some free stickers with state names. She has some musical stickers, so the box is dubbed ‘Around the U.S.A. with Music’. We decorate, make a lid, she says (distinctly, I might add) that she loves the box. We go to bed.

This morning over breakfast, it is revealed that she is not too happy about the box. We have 45 minutes to come up with a solution to avoid unhappiness and stomach aches. So we google. Most boxes are construction papery and valentine colors. This will not do. We see a cupcake card. I say, “Hey, I have ice cream buckets.”  And we have our unique solution. Hers is turquoise. I did not get a photo before we dashed to school.  I came home, and instead of sewing costumes or cleaning, I spent some time doing one for myself. I like it.

Start with….

Gather, hot glue and squish like mad….base

A refashion fashion show! by dawnee

Our opera house holds a fundraiser (2nd year) for renovations.  It is called Project Runway Repurposed.  The designers are able to choose from donated clothing and fabric and then make new garments to be worn in a fashion show that are then auctioned off.

I started with:

this pink sweater, floral shower curtain and a tweed jacket.  I also had a lime green fabric remnant, with a large tulip print and a green wraparound sweater.

When I saw them, I thought ‘Mad Men’, so I decided to make a lady’s wiggle dress, and a girl’s dress.  I decided to use the sweater to make little shrugs or jackets.

I really liked the neckline of the middle dress here…but wanted a bit of flair, so I added:

the kickpleat.

For the girl’s dress, I used this pattern, which apparently used to belong to Roseann:

Here are my daughters modeling the outfits…

My youngest (10yo) submitted two fairy costume designs in the Beginner category. I will post pics of that soon.

I have been spending time looking at so many inspiring blogs and thinking ‘Hey, I need to post this or that to my blog”.  I even signed up for the fabulous Wardrobe Refashion, so that I would be prompted to post my goings-on…

I ,  Dawn,   pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of “new”                 manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 4 months. I pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoted, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings! Signed, Dawn.

I do have so many projects in the air right now…a Project Runway Refashioned show at the end of the month and both Once Upon a Mattress and Music Man shows this spring! Lots of fun (and stress)!

Parting photos:

Inspiration for Marion the Librarian

And the dress Laurey wears in the “Dream Ballet” in Oklahoma!

Hope to keep a resolution to post more!
