It wasn’t until I saw my mum post a picture of her teen mascara on pinterest that I realised how interesting advertising for makeup has been over the years and how it has changed. I have three sets of pictures, all maybelline, that I thought I would share with you.
Early advertising before the 60s shows beautiful women modelling the makeup look while drawings and instructions for the product are added underneath.
I think these late 60s to 80s pics are my fave! Very sexy bond girl. We still get the product description too which I quite like.
From the late 80s onwards advertising has a lot more colour, digital photography and the product details have been replaced with short sharp slogans and promises!
Which pic is your favourite?
