    @19myself91: I know what you mean about the 1980's, as opposed to what a lot of people think, the styles back then weren't always tacky or outlandish. It's like there were two types of "looks" at the time: the Brooke Shields look, which was very polished and elegant, and the Cyndi Lauper look, which was very quirky and free-spirited.

    @swissmiss2584 Yes they did a lot of backcombing in the 40's as well as using the rats.

    Was it common to tease the hair in the 40's?

    I always wondered if it was done to achieve their high hairstyles or if they just used hair rats.

    I love the picture you used at the start of the video, so adorable and as a brown girl myself, I appreciate feeling included. We often get left out when people think 'retro' you always include us. πŸ™‚

    @MsVictory1945 Part One discusses that. πŸ™‚ This look is inspired by both cinematic head shots and candid street shots. But it would be common for a lady of the era to wear foundation, eyeshadow, eyeliner, blush, and lipstick for a night out.

    Would women in the 1940s, esp. the war years, have used so many different products, in real life???

    You know I didn't think I'd be a huge fan of the new backdrop but it's not bad! πŸ˜€

    Love the new backdrop, so pretty! The 40's is one of my favorite decades, aesthetically, so this video was right up my alley πŸ˜› I was wondering one thing, though, about false lashes… How long have they been around and in use, do you know? I tried googling it, but couldn't really find anything useful, so I thought I'd ask πŸ˜›

    Oh one more thing! I live in a section of the country that was home to a huge number of ship yards during the war, particularly where women worked. There is a whole Rosie the Riveter museum near those old yards where I take daily walks by the ocean. I always think of you when I go there! They have photos of women there from that time, and you are right- even though they were working hard labor, they had their hair and makeup looking just right! So lovely!
