Btw, if you are interested in learning more about 1940s makeup and beauty, you should check out this e-book. I recently download all of their makeup & beauty guides (it is a better deal that way), and they are chock full of helpful information! Definitely a great buy if you are into vintage hair & makeup, or just wanting to learn more about vintage beauty trends.
