While Soviet women always aspired to look perfect. And indeed they did! We asked mothers and grandmothers about what cosmetic products have been in their Arsenal 30 years ago.

Mascara

Oh, this legendary mascara! She proudly wore the name “Leningrad” and was a beautician at each fashionista. Judging from the appearance, the prototype of the “Leningrad” was the first Maybelline mascara. To put eyelashes in mascara had previously spit, and then divide the lashes with a needle or pin. But what about the bending, you ask? It is more difficult. But the most desperate: bending is achieved by means of a hot knife, which cheat eyelashes. Little repeat? We are weak!

Eyeshadow

  • Hair

    And how we wore it: the worst hairstyles of the past years

  • Movies

    It is impossible to be so beautiful! Beauties of the Soviet Union, which was in love with all men

“Blue is the new black” — this phrase perfectly would display the main trend in make-up of the year since 1985. The blue shade is very cheep! Simply because of the palettes of a different color in the USSR there. But our moms proudly “wore” a blue shadow: regardless of eye color, skin tones or clothing colors.

Lipstick and lip pencil

With the lipsticks in the Soviet Union was slightly better than with the shadows. Soviet women gave preference to two colors: carrot and brown. The fortunate could boast of even and pearly lipstick. Special chic — lipstick company “Dzintars 21”, but it’s kind of “snatched”. The concept of “chapstick” does not exist. But was cosmetic vaseline “Mink” — it was used instead of hygienic lipstick. Lip pencil… no Such thing in the USSR also did not exist. But there was a red pencil from the set of “Young artist”, which were bought in the kids world.

Concealer

Tone cream “Ballet” was first released by the factory “Freedom” in 1881. Their 100 years in the purses of the Soviet women he exactly lived. Needless to say that he “went to” thick fat layer, the skin does not breathe, the pores clogged, and the clothes get dirty. By the way, a few years ago cream been reincarnated, now the market is a product of the “Ballet 2000”.

Powder

With powder things were a little better. Powder the powder was classified according to the degree of comminution and type of odorants into 4 groups: the highest quality — “East”, “Velvety”, “Ballet”; group, And (good quality) — “Red Moscow”, “Kremlin”, “Greece”, “Tale”, group B (medium) — “the Mask”, “Camellia”, “Shipr”; group (mass) — “Carmen”, “lilac”, “Violet”. Later there loose powder “Leningrad”, but to get it was considered a great success.

Hair dye

Hair colors were two: henna and Basma. Accordingly, it was possible to paint either a radical black, or a fiery redhead. Clarified hair with a decoction of chamomile. The brave achieved the coveted blonde with hydrogen peroxide. It did weave. “Etched” gidroperita hair then restored with castor oil. But that’s another story.
