Painted Ladies

Zhigan i prostitutka by B. Grigoriev (1917, priv. coll)

Ahhh, painted ladies! I am not referring to the butterflies or the multicolored Victorian and Edwardian homes. I am referring to those aristocrats, thespians, dancers, and yes, those "ladies of loose morals" who dared to wear makeup. There was a time when no self-respecting lady would wear makeup. Thank goodness, things have changed!

Ombrè is a term that has been used in both fashion and beauty for many years. The gradient effect of this look is appealing. It adds style interest to clothing, makeup, even hair color.
