Laura Wallace I am amazed at how they look so good and they have no makeup.
Elizabeth Vandervort some upper class women wore it, but i don't think it really looked natural.

Carol Price Retzer They didn't have the type of make up like we've had for over fifty years. The "women of the night" improvised with whatever they had on hand resulting in a clownish, hard look. It took many years for the average woman to resort to wearing make up as many looked down on a made up face. "She looks like a hussy!" is what the other women would say.

Mary Ellen Grayberg The actually did have makeup but it was frowned upon and was thought to be mostly worn by street walkers and actresses, however, many of the shops had a back door which the average lady could come through to buy her makeup without being seen by the public....interesting. I imagine it was a little rouge and lip color. I have done research on it as that is of great interest to me but, I need to do more.
