For Your Next New York Trip, Checkout Audrey Hepburn And Marilyn Monroe’s Beauty Products Straight From Their Vanities

There’s no denying the staying power of makeup. It has a long and rich that researchers have proved to have had 10,000 years. In celebration of its past and former times, the Makeup Museum is being established in New York. Fans of cosmetics will get a chance to celebrate the history of makeup. It opened next May 2020 in the Meatpacking District. 

The new museum will celebrate the history of beauty and cosmetics and its influence on our culture and society.

The new museum will feature a series of exhibitions that will touch on the trends of decades that span over 10,000 years of makeup history. To kick of the exhibits, the Makeup Museum will debut “Pink Jungle: 1950s Makeup in America.” The retro exhibit will feature the iconic makeup trends of the 50s and highlight the decade’s most celebrated beauty icons. That’s right, you can bet a whole lot of images of blonde bombshell Marilyn Monroe, classic leading lady Audrey Hepburn and the ever divine Greta Garbo. 

Speaking about the new museum, Doreen Bloch, the executive director and co-founder of The Makeup Museum has said that “The Makeup Museum is a critical institution for the cultural landscape in New York and globally. Makeup has a 10,000-year history, spanning from the ancient Egyptians and the kohl eyeliner they used to kabuki and geisha makeup in Japan, all the way to drag makeup and the influence it has today on pop culture.”

According to Bloch the museum will display, one-of-a-kind items including creams, powders, and skin pastes straight from the vanities of Hollywood’s 1950s starlets.  “Our goal is to be able to house many exhibitions and immerse people in different time periods, and give people a really deep understanding in a very fun way, how integral the beauty aspect of each era was and how it played out,” Rachel Goodwin, the makeup artist to Emma Stone, also co-founded the Makeup Museum, told The Hollywood Reporter. “What I really do hope is that makeup artists get a museum that legitimizes their craft in a way that has not happened before. We’re called artists, but still seen as being on the fringe. I want to elevate the huge impact makeup artists have had on cultural norms and how they have shifted the way we see ourselves. I want to elevate them to fine art status.”

Visitors of the exhibit can get pumped to see beauty products that run the gambit vintage items.

From brands like Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein, Max Factor and Sally Hansen, fans of beauty will get a chance to see the evolution of trends like cay eye and bold red lip. The fifties-themed exhibition is set to also include the skin-care products used by Marylin Monroe. According to Bloch the museum will start its show with the display of the 1950s because of its role in developing and molding the makeup industry of today of which brands like Elizabeth Arden and Sally Hansen were born.

Latina beauty boss and Besame Cosmetics chief executive officer, Gabriela Hernandez has worked with other executives to launch the museum.

⭐︎ В Нью-Йорке откроется первый Музей макияжа История макияжа и грима богата событиями, которые повлияли на развитие общества не меньше, чем модная индустрия. По словам организаторов, первая выставка расскажет о стилистике 50-х и абсолютной любви к розовому. В мае 2020 года откроется первый Музей макияжа в Нью-Йорке, который будет прославлять культовые бьюти-образы и рассказывать о видении прекрасного в разные промежутки времени. Грядущие выставки будут охватывать около десяти тысяч лет истории макияжа и грима, а детальные экспозиции поведают о бьюти-предпочтениях одного десятилетия. Дебютный проект The Makeup Museum имеет название «Розовые джунгли: макияж 1950-х годов в Америке» и будет рассказывать о знаковых тенденциях макияжа и влиятельных женщинах того времени, включая Мэрилин Монро, Грету Гарбо и Одри Хепберн. Более того, на выставке будут представлены в виде экспонатов косметические принадлежности Монро и Гарбо. «Музей макияжа является важным учреждением для культурного ландшафта в Нью-Йорке и во всем мире», — рассказывает Дорин Блох, исполнительный директор и соучредитель Музея макияжа. «Макияж имеет тысячелетнюю историю, начиная с древних египтян (кайал-подводки для глаз), и кабуки-макияжа, который наносили гейши в Японии, и заканчивая современными тенденциями мейк-ап культуры». По словам директора The Makeup Museum, первый проект расскажет о 50-х только потому, что это логическое начало рождения всех культовых американских брендов косметики: Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein, Max Factor and Sally Hansen. Над выставками нового музея также будут работать владелица бьюти-марки Besame Cosmetics Габриэла Эрнандес, а также известные визажисты Рейчел Гудвин и Влада Фоменко-Хаггерт. . #хаб_стильжизни #музеймакияжа #makeupmuseum #newyork #themakeupmuseum

Hernandez is reported to have worked with fellow beauty executives and makeup artists to sponsor the museum’s first exhibit.  Hernandez is said to be working alongside celebrity makeup artists like Rachel Goodwin and Vlada Haggerty. 

“The ’50s was a time of immense change,” Bloch said in her interview. “You have the advent of the color TV, which is game-changing for the makeup industry, where all of a sudden you can actually see the color of Lucille Ball’s lips in I Love Lucy, and how that impacted the sale of cosmetics. You see also how many rules there were at the time for how you were meant to use makeup… We’re going to create a spin on that to shine a light on this system in a unique and modern way.” 

The Makeup Museum is set to debut at a key time in the industry of beauty and makeup. 

Less than a decade ago brands like Urban Decay M.A.C. and Anastasia Beverly Hills felt like the Queen Bees of the beauty industry. The brands undoubtedly contributed to the swarm of beauty tutorial videos that were created on platforms like Youtube and Instagram and subsequently redefined their forms. Today, the U.S. makeup brands, like their industry have seen a massive fall in sales according to a report by the NPD Group released this year. With newer and brands like  Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics and Glossier changing up the game and ranking in multi-million dollar deals, these brands have been cast to the back burner.

The new museum is set to premiere at 94 Gansevoort Street and will be open for six months with plans to remain in a New York flagship after it closes.

Use These Tricks to Keep Your Curls Cute and Healthy During the Winter’s Coldest Weather

Having curly hair comes with an extra responsibility that must be taken seriously. If you’ve got a head full of curls, you can’t just jump out of the shower, put your hair in a chongo and go about your day. No, your luscious locks need extra care to be their absolute best. Moisturizing, braiding, brushing, styling, combing and so on. Whether you keep it curly or flat-ironed it straight, your pelo already needs a lot of regular TLC. That’s just during mild weather; don’t get us started on the extra lengths you have to go to in order to care for it when it gets extra cold. 

Let’s just say three words: dull, dry and brittle. Sadly, this is what your curls could be reduced to thanks to the blistering chill of the winter months. 

However, it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ve complied a list of the best ways to keep your curls cute and healthy during the chilliest times of the year. So, check this list out and wear those beautiful curls with pride, mija.

1. Conditioning can be cleansing.

If you haven’t ditched your shampoo for co-washing yet, you might want to give it a shot. Most shampoos have harmful sulfates in them and hair that is very wavy, curly or textured can be damaged by this. Instead, try a good co-wash conditioner and use that to replace your shampoo. It will cleanse while providing lots of moisturizer and re-hydration while removing excess oil, dirt and product build up. 

2. Hair masks = weekly TLC

Twitter / @garnierusa

Hair masks are super hydrating conditioning treatments that can be used once a week. These formulas can revitalize your curls and repair any damage done between your treatments. You’ll love how super silky your hair will feel after you wash one of these masks away. There are tons of different formulas with distinct ingredients that all offer varying benefits. Try a few and find your fav!

3. Your hair needs protein, too.

Just like our bodies, protein makes our hair strong. So, naturally, our curls could use a little protein boast every once in a while. Try doing a protein treatment at the beginning of winter (every 4 to 6 weeks following that) and you will see an improvement on breakage. Use a deep conditioner afterwards and you’ll be good to go. 

4. A good de-tangling spray will save your life.

Windy conditions and harsh temperatures are no fun for your curls but that’s no reason for you to punish them. Make upkeep easy by finding a de-tangling spray that will tame tangles and part knots in seconds. Add it into your am and pm routines and you’ll notice a substantial difference and your scalp will appreciate the act of kindness. 

5. Try out hair oils for your curls.

For curl health, hydration is the name of the game. During these cold, dry months, you want to keep you scalp moisturized but you definitely don’t want to over do it and drown your curls. There are various kinds of hair oils and their ingredients offer everything from stress relief to a dandruff-free head of hair. Try a few but be sure to find a light formula that won’t weigh you down. 

6. Give a diffuser a chance. 

Twitter / @conair

There’s a misconception that heat harms hair but that isn’t completely true. In fact, for your curls, a healthy blast of heat is just what they need during these winter months. Whether you have a diffuser or a hooded dryer, feel free to use it daily to revitalize your curls and give them a lively bounce.

7. A leave-in conditioner is mandatory.

Twitter / @cantubeauty 

We know that dryness and breakage is a big issue during the winter so most of the tricks you’ll look to will attempt to add hydration to your hair. A leave-in conditioner is guaranteed to do that. However, it will also add volume to your ‘do and will work through your daily knots and tangles. It will also drastically reduce that breakage issue. Your curls are practically begging for this product.

8. Lay your head down on luxury before you go mimis. 

Twitter / @slipsilkpillowcase

The best way to care for your curly hair is to have a great night’s sleep. If you’re up all night tossing and turning, you’ll be up in the morning with a head full of tangles. Instead, invest in feather pillows that are soft and always feel like they’re on the cool side. Top them off with a set of especially smooth silk pillow cases. You’ll wake up feeling like a Disney Princess.

15 Fashion And Beauty Trends That Should Stay In The 2010s

15 Fashion And Beauty Trends That Should Stay In The 2010s

hairdazzleofficial / Instagram

2019 is coming to a close, and you know what that means—we’re about to begin a whole new decade. Each decade has its ups and downs, its memorably bright moments and its tragically bad trends. The last ten years brought us some crazes that really, truly slayed…but there are so many fashion and beauty trends that we hope will NOT return in the 2020s.

Spray Tan

The Guardian reported that the spray tan was the fastest growing area of cosmetics in 2010. Let’s just hope. Thankfully, that statistic didn’t hold up throughout the 2010s. Let’s hope it stays that way through the 2020s.

Wedge Sneakers

Okay, sometimes these can be pretty fly, if paired with the right outfit. And lots of celebs loved them—from Beyonce to Alicia Keys to Nicki Minaj, they were everywhere in the early-to-mid aughts. But they’re not the most functional, if you think about the fact that they’re a sneaker, and a lot of ladies complained that they (ironically) made their legs look shorter. They’re still around, though, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them carry over into the next decade.

Couture Athleisure

On a similar note…athleisure?! Athleisure is just glorified sweatpants. There, I said it. But much like its weird cousin, the Wedge Sneaker, it’s likely to grossly overstay its welcome.

Cold Shoulder Cut-Out Tops

This is just a matter of logic, people. When you wear long sleeves, it’s probably kind of cold out, right? Why would you expose your innocent shoulders to the elements? It makes no sense. Put a real shirt on.

Glitter Roots

Glitter is one of those polemic things that people either love or really, really hate. Even if you fall into the former, it’s safe to say that no one is trying to keep this trend alive…glitter is hard enough to clean up, so who wants that stuff embedded in their hair? It may look cute and whimsical, but no thanks.

Heavy Contouring

Oh, the magic of contouring. No one can deny its wildly transformative powers. But in reality, contouring is something that works best when you’re in front of the camera—it’s not really for everyday life. Not only can it add unnecessary time to your morning routine, it can often have a masklike effect if not done well, and we ain’t got nothing to hide in 2020!

Single Earring

The single earring trend took hold in 2017 (though it started back in the 80s), and honestly—it’s tough to say whether it should stay or go. Asymmetry can be edgy and fierce, for sure, but leaving one ear completely empty? That sounds like something only Prince could pull off. Maybe it deserves a pass IF the wearer can really rock it.

Heel-less Heels

Heel-less heels are often used for cosplay, which makes sense—they’re cartoonish enough to work well for a costume. And if you’re dressing up as a person whose ankles may break at any moment, they are absolutely perfect!

Bubble Nails

Bubble nails—or “hump” nails—are essentially fingernails in 3D. The sculpted acrylic takes on the appearance of (you guessed it!) a bubble, and even though it first came on the scene in 2009 and got pretty popular in 2015, 2020 just may not be ready for this jelly.

Clear Plastic Boots

Speaking of jelly, the recent clear plastic boots trend hearkens back to the jelly sandals of the 90s. There’s definitely something nostalgic about this current iteration, but boots have a tendency to make feet hot and, well, damp. Not sure how much we want to show off our sweaty feet in the years to come.

Negative Space Eyeliner

We all know the satisfaction of a perfect wing, but this negative space trend would be way too hard to master. Imagine all the time it would take to perfect that little triangle—and unlike a classic winged tip, it’s unlikely to flatter most eye shapes. Thank you, next.

Flared Nails

Flared nails first emerged in the early aughts, but they regained traction in 2017. Why, though?

Real Fur

Animal activists argue that clothing made from real fur is unethical, as it unnecessarily puts animals in harm’s way and are likely to be mistreated at every level of fur and leather production. With this in mind, fur alternatives are a much better trend to pursue in 2020 and beyond—

Fake Fur

—Or are they? The truth is, faux furs pose a major threat to the environment, as the methods and materials used to produce it are teeming with petrochemical poisons. Up-and-coming “bioleathers,” made from biodegradable and lab-grown compounds, are likely to be the best alternative that the upcoming decade will have to offer.

Man Buns

You either love them or you hate them. Either way, it might be okay for them to stay fossilized in the 2010s, at least for a while.
