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.

An absolute classic, the Denman Brush has long been touted as the fairy godmother of brushes. Loved by 3c to 4 hair types the Denman brush has been known to dentangle its way through curlier hair pattern with a stroke of the brush.

Ladies and Gents do yourself a favor and get you a brush! My boyfriend is so shocked at my curls too! Honestly, I had never thought I could have a consistent curl pattern. The pics are 6 weeks apart but my curls never were this defined as they are with the Denman brush. I had 3B but now I am full 3C hair curl type.

I didn’t remove any rows and combined my curls with Shea Moisture Hair smoothie and some eco gel to style. Watch some youtube videos to help see how to properly brush hair out. I sectioned it into layers and even tried out bangs for the first time since the curls are so tight and I am seeing consistent coils!” – Amazon user.

This Brazilian Mother And Daughter Share A Rare Beauty Mark In The Form Of White Locks

It’s not every day that we get to see beauty this rare or so brightly celebrated.

Two-year-old Mayah and her daughter Talyta Youssef Aziz Vieira both share a rare genetic condition that means they have a white forelock that makes them look like X-men’s Rogue. Now, their unique traits are going viral and being celebrated on social media.

The mother and daughter pair both have white streaks in their hair due to a genetic condition called Piebaldism.

Talyta, who is from Jericoacoara, Brazil gave birth to daughter Mayah in 2018. According to Daily Mail, the mother was not at all surprised to find out that the two shared the rare trait that gives them two different hair colors. According to Talyta, the genetic condition was passed on to her grandfather, mother, aunt, and cousins, all of whom were born with piebaldism. The genetic condition is characterized by the absence of cells called melanocytes in particular regions of the skin and hair.

According to Talyta’s Instagram page, the young mother said that in her younger years she attempted to hide the white streaks in her hair.

Soon enough, and fortunately, Talyta came to appreciate the trait. Even better? The mother says her daughter has fully embraced her hair mark and enjoys dressing up as Disney character Cruella de Vil while the two watch 101 Dalmatians together.

According to Daily Mail, Talyta says “Piebaldism runs in our family so we knew there was a high probability that Mayah would also have it… From the moment she was born, Mayah had so many white hairs on the front of her head. My doula posted a picture on social media and days later, we were invited by a photographer to do a photo shoot.”

It didn’t take long for the pictures to go viral online.

“I tried to hide my white hair until my twenties. I’d hide it behind other strands – worried that people would bully me,” Taylta explained “I soon realized though that I was unique and special. I want to set that example for Mayah. People always stop us to say how special she is.”

Fortunately, Mayah will have a chance to see someone who looks like her on the big screen soon.

While Mayah’s features have been compared to Rogue from X-Men and Anna from Frozen, the little girl will get a chance to see Cruella in Disney’s soon to be released feature about the villain.

‘That’s when I thought it would be a lovely idea for us to dress up together as those characters. I want Mayah to have fun memories about the way she looks,” Taylta explained about her images of her daughter on Instagram “I want her to embrace being a superhero. Other people who are different have reached out to us thanking us for helping them accept themselves. It’s so sad that people have hid themselves away. We don’t need to be the same to be beautiful. Everyone has a heart inside to accept and love. We are living in a time of knowledge and transformation. Let’s embrace what makes us different.”
