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.

Fast-forward to the 1930s and gothic makeup became a huge trend.

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.

Today, Dominicanas are proud of their natural curls and impeccable beauty… as they should be.
