This makeup look is fashioned after glamour silent films , compiled from actress glamour glossy’s and  movie stills A classic dramatic look I also researched what film effected the visual 20130917_230902esthetics of the makeup actually worn on set went off a color chart in American silent films had a Blue-sensitive film in this clip you can see popular eye brow shaping and lips with accessorizing  ideas Blue-sensitive film Until the end of  the 1920s, most American black and white motion pictures were made with blue-sensitive film. The film stock was sensitive to the blue-violet end of the visible spectrum but insensitive to the yellow-red end, which meant that it registered reds and yellows as black and light blues as white. Some orthochromatic film may also have been in use; it was very sensitive to violet light, markedly sensitive to blue and ultra-violet, much less sensitive to green and yellow light, and insensitive to red.

Some of the problems created by blue-sensitive film included blonde hair photographing too dark, light blue eyes photographing nearly white and cloudy skies filming flat white. Moreover, as the full spectrum was not captured, gray-scale tonal differences were limited, resulting in pictures with a higher contrast than was visible with the naked eye. This meant that noticeable demarcations (lines) would sometimes appear on film where the naked eye only saw a gradual blend.

visually films were black and white but with this color use was highly exasperated and contradictory colors to appear natural it skewed makeup effect at quick thought to change a makeup to look for B/W maybe just use black grays& white no … reds appeared to deep and half of the spectrum appeared black on film so yellows violets and greens  were used to eyes shadow blush and lips for desired effect

blue-colour

I use this strategy for this look using all colors as if actress would have looked on set in the 1920s
