Vintage Makeup Obsession

I had to share a link to a video that is for sure the epitome of all of my favorite things in one!!!  THANK YOU Lisa Eldridge for posting these videos on YouTube!  I LOVE watching other makeup artists and beauty gurus at work, but Ms. Lisa Eldridge takes it to a completely different level for me!! 
Having "grown up" in the world of Estee Lauder, I have for many years been fascinated by the history of remarkable women in the beauty industry.  Mrs. Estee Lauder (YES...there really was a woman named Estee Lauder) was a revolutionary woman who paved the way for so many beauty brands we are familiar with today!!  As you know...vintage (a.k.a. "old" with a story) anything fascinates me!!  Talk to me about vintage well shut the front door!  You have my attention!!  This topic inspires me on more levels than is probably healthy, but I LOVE IT! 

I hope someday to be able to have the same (okay, I'll be realistic- a tiny version of) this kind of vintage makeup collection!!  Amazing!!  This history of makeup speaks not only to the packaging, colors and trends that changed over the years, but more importantly it speaks to the changes in culture, world history, times of war, economic ups and downs and of course the lives of women in the past 100 + years.  FASCINATING.  Throw all that history of women in with some WAY awesome and innovative makeup ideas, and I'm finished.  Check please.  :)

PLEASE check out this video from Lisa Eldridge - "Beauty - Victorian Era to 1930's"  This is the first of her series!! Click below to see the video or click here to watch on Ms. Lisa Eldridge's full website -

Hope you love it as much as me!!! :)

xoxo, Jessica
