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.
