September AND October Contest Winners!!

I thought I had posted September's winner and I had not, so profuse apologies for that. Just so everyone knows, even though others are listed as mods, I'm the only active one and am owner and maintainer. My contract law class takes up way too much of my time, twice as much as my other classes. So I apologize for having been a bad mod while going back to school. Please feel free to comment on a post of mine, DM me, or email me m99084me[at]gmail[dot]com if something is amiss or I've forgotten to do something.

September's Pen, Pencil, and Stationary winner is dandyxr, congrats!!

1920s: Fashion



This is Mae Murray, "The Girl With The Beestung Lips," whom Gran copied in her makeup even at age 86. She would purse her lips and dab red color on the 'cupid' shape; she never got into the pinks and pastels that I did in the 60s! Also, Gran plucked and/or shaved her eyebrows, using eyebrow pencil to draw them more naturally than did her next-door agemate neighbor who also shaved and whose eyebrows looked perpetually surprised.
