1934: Max Factor’s Beauty Micrometer Amanda February 21, 2014 1930-1939, Fashion & beauty 5 CommentsFavourited 966 times Add to favourites Via: Black and WTF; Jeddah Beauty Blog; Modern Mechanix. 5 Responses Krista September 3, 2012 I shudder at seeing the words “flaws” and “defects” applied to a woman’s face. Or anyone’s face or body. In this photo, witness the birth of the beauty industry that makes its exorbitant profits by telling women there is something wrong with their natural looks that can only be fixed with expensive makeup or surgery. Sad. Reply CHARLES September 3, 2012 I agree Krista. And that thing looks like a medieval torture device. Reply Mark September 4, 2012 Would it make you feel better to use those terms applied to a MAN’S face? I’m sure you wouldn’t put a 70s Robert Redford on the same level as Jimmy Durante, for instance. Even men are judged, on screen and off, by their favorable appearance. Reply ann September 11, 2012 thanks this Reply Coja Mačkin March 5, 2014 This looks to be one of the inspirations for J. S.
