100 Years of Dominican Beauty
In LaLa Films’s latest video, they take us back to 1910 and show us what hair and makeup looked like in the Dominican Republic. That volume and glowing skin carries all through today, but which is your favorite?
In the 1910s, headwraps were essential. This accentuated the face and gave the spotlight to those high cheekbones ✨.
That bone structure tho.
The 1920s made way for a super sophisticated look.
Cuter than the huge glasses hipsters are wearing today.
Fast-forward to the 1930s and gothic makeup became a huge trend.
The 1940s took us back to the headwrap, but with darker tones on the face and bold, regal accessories.
The era of glam came in the 1950s with fancy updos and berry lips.
10 years later, Dominicanas went back to a more natural look with less makeup and semi-relaxed hair.
In the hippie era of the 70s Dominicans slayed the soft curls and blue shadow.
Because it looks better against olive skin, don’t you agree?
You can’t do the 80s without big hair. Dominicanas didn’t disappoint.
The curls made for perfect volume.
We all remember the two bangs, this trend even carried over to the Dominican Republic. Super cute against the pastel makeup palette.
Only they could pull off green shadow and bright pink lips.
Vampy lips and straight locks are still a favorite everywhere today. So trendy.
Probably the look you wore to the club last weekend.
Today, Dominicanas are proud of their natural curls and impeccable beauty… as they should be.
