Relive Brazilian Beauty Trends of the Last 100 Years
The 1910s were all about minimal makeup and bouncy, playful curls.
The headscarf, eye shadow, and matte red lips brought life to Brazil in the 1920s.
In the 1930s, Brazilians kept the red lip, and hair came up into an elegant, curly crown.
By the 1940s, fruit and floral hats were all the rage – blame Carmen Miranda – as the statement piece of the decade. Also, dark lipstick was everywhere.
Brazilian pageantry became known worldwide in the 1950s, and this bob was definitely the signature pageant look.
Nude lips, fierce bangs, and severe eyeliner dominated Brazilian beauty in the 1960s.
Tousled hair with fun bangs and a glossy lip was the style of the 1970s “it” girl.
The smokey eye, teased hair, and big hoop earrings became the go-to look of the 1980s.
It was all about the Xuxa ponytail and soft makeup for the 1990s.
By the 2000s, the hair was long and simple paired beautifully with heavy eyeliner and a neutral lip color.
And most recently, Brazilians have worn big, flowing curls, a matte red lip, and just a touch of eye make up to tie it all together.
