vintage cosmetic ads

Jean Shrimpton was the face of Yardley cosmetics in the 1960s. I just love these ads!


My mom actually had this Maybelline “ultra liner” still kicking around when I was in high school, and I remember that very container – a hard cake of black shadow. Moisten the brush with liner, and there you had it. It actually was way easier to use than pencil or liquid liner of today.

A tanning ad from the early 70s. Good thing we know better now. Slather on the sunscreen, ladies!
