It seems beauty ads in the 40s were more like "omg you're a disgusting person and no man will like you" rather than "if your wear this you'll look prettier"

>He looked at me as much as to say, 'Your fault!'
>And it was.
Holy shit, that's dark.

I also look at the illustration and my immediate thought is that the man is holding his hand after hitting the woman where she's holding her face, I wonder if that is intentionally ambiguous because you can plausibly say the guy is just adjusting his tie.

Bitch, that girl is clearly old enough to know if her breath smells bad, she needs to stop blaming her poor mother for her own shortcomings. Seems like the 40s was a bad time to be married as a woman.

it's ironic that this 'don't harm delicate tissue' stuff is happening during the time period circumcision (of male and females) was on the rise.

It makes me giggle that people were putting Lysol in their bag back then. I hope there weren't many women who actually used these products.

Slightly ot but why the heck does everyone look so much better from back then? Like especially in films, everyone faces and skin seem so much fuller/glowing

W-was it just the cameras not being good enough to pick up such faults?

I feel like I'm missing out on some 1900s beauty secrets

No. 73552

Vaseline on screen, old ass photoshop etc… Editing pictures is not a new thing, as long as humans have portrayed themselves, humans have edited their portrayals (Even the famous bust of Nefertiti contains the "unphotoshopped" face of Nefertiti that was sculpted over to hide her "flaws")

Women also swore by cold cream back then. It does wonders for some women and for others it doesn't.

Thanks for those links anon, it's very interesting. I can't take my eyes off the retronaut section from the "Mashable" website.

I think the type of clothing worn back then contributes to people in old photos looking more attractive. Both men and women wore formal clothes in daily life. These were often tailored to fit them better. Unlike today, tailors weren't used only by the wealthy. There were upper class, middle class, and working class tailors. The formless, baggy Tshirts and sweatshirts worn today hardly look good on anyone.

This photo is a good example of what I mean. These men are ordinary college students, not fashion models or movie stars, but the combination of a well fitting suit and carefully combed or slicked back hair makes it look like a gathering of hot guys. Try to imagine what the same men in this photo would look like in baggy jeans and Tshirts with unkept hair. That's much less attractive, isn't it?

You never know what will happen Anon. Maybe it will.
The worst thing is guys now don't dress up for anything, generally young men will wear a fitted suit for their first office jobs but it soon slides back to ill-fitted clothes or casual wear. And when women get dressed up for a night out, o look t-shirts and trainers again from the boys.
