Cave paintings dating back to pre-historic times are found in various regions of the world.   Colors used were derived from hematite iron (III) oxide ochres, manganese oxide browns, bauxite, a red aluminum oxide.  Since that time humans have continuously dedicated effort to developing a wide range of colors as their artistic talent developed.   Ancient Egyptian art shows both men and women adorned with eye makeup that may have been used for medicinal purposes, to keep parasites away from the eye area, in additional to use as a makeup and for religious purposes.  Through the 1800’s, light skin without makeup was considered the ultimate desirable look.  Moving towards and during the 1900’s red lipstick becomes popular as a symbol of women’s independence.  The famous mascara under the brand name “Maybelline” was developed. Beyond the eyes and lips, a light blush on the cheeks, was becoming popular.  Late 1920’s-30’s the desire of women to look like their favorite movie stars makeup use was focused on the eyes and eyebrows, the “smokey eye look was in fashion.” The look of the 1940’s was back to natural; makeup was not as available during the war years. Red lipstick, light brown eye shadow and mascara were trendy at the time.  Marilyn Monroe became the inspiration of the look during the 1950’s.  In the film, Asphalt Jungle she appeared wearing winged eyeliner that popularized a sense of increased desire to express a higher level of creativity in the personal use of makeup.  Creamy foundations replaced powders and red lipsticks.  Each decade color fashion seems to go from a natural look to one of heightened personal color expression.

Fast forward to the 2020’s, what will the iconic trends be this decade?  We started this decade wearing a face mask, makeup forgotten as people worked from home and found little need to apply makeup while wearing a mask when they went out.  As we move towards a more normal “lifestyle” can one predict what the makeup trends are likely to be and how can we achieve the look?  This is what the NYSCC January event is all about!
