Celebrate National Lipstick Day with a Look at Lipstick Through the Years

Since the dawn of time, make-up has been a way to enhance, entice, elaborate, and eliminate. Found a small 2 inch cylinder, lipstick has a way of taking your facial feature from 0 to 100. The right color can prove to be the perfect accessory for any outfit. Throughout the years, the trends related to this simple make-up element have spanned across the galaxy. In honor of National Lipstick Day, we decided to take a look at how lip color trends have changed throughout the years.


1950’s

The era of pin ups and the legendary Marilyn Monroe. With that being said, bright lips were obviously the trend in the 50’s. Around this time, the voluptuous woman was the most desired woman. Make up was meant to entice. Women started to use lip liner to bold their lips and create a pouty look. This was the decade in which lipstick began to make its mark (no pun intended.) The first long lasting lipstick was invented in 1950. While make-up has always been an essential part of a woman’s daily routine, lips were never an important part until this point in time.
