Make-up advent


The nineteenth century saw make-up become much more neutral.  Deceptively worn or sometimes not at all.
Make-up was much more artfully applied to avoid detection.  Women pretended they were not painting their faces and cosmetic were going out of fashion or underground. With rouge now out of fashion a pale ethereal look came into Vogue. However older women tended to cling on to their old habits of white enameled faces and rouge.
