    Wow imagine living in a time where makeup worn had to be undetectable. It's just paint, it washes off.

    I would like to see an ancient china/ Japan make up but if you're uncomfortable with doing that i understand. You could always use models, but it's just a thought of mine 😊

    Most women of the night and young (not yet married) didn't wear their hair all the way down. Some had a half up half down style. I also don't understand.. why wearing makeup back than. Was such a big deal , and pretty much a no-no back than..

    What did African American women makeup look like that's obviously a white woman makeup what about a African American and I am not only African-American but Japanese according to what I've seen in picture books magazine I mean save picture books magazines Japanese women put on from what I've been seen in a magazine that was real white they wore white makeup but as we both know during the making of The Wizard of Oz they had makeup that made the actors sick especially Buddy Ebsen and I watch the History Channel the British History Channel on TVclip and that was talking about how makeup was made back in Queen Elizabeth Day and there was a lot of metal and a lot of us stuff that will kill you but there is makeup on fortunately that was made and that used animals that's I used to I used to go and donate blood plasma Center and the man that worked at the plasma center he said that there is some makeup out of plasma human blood

    Just found this series. I LOVE it! I think you'd enjoy the book For Her Own Good: Two Centuries of Expert Advice to Women by Barbara Enrenreich. She touches on some "expert" makeup advice as well as medical/social commentary. It's so fascinating. I studied for a certificate in Women's Studies while getting my MA in History and makeup/social advice was my preference for reading and choosing what books I reviewed.

    I'd really like to see you do the "emo" Era makeup. It was a lot of fun and it would be interesting to show differences between it and the punk makeup of the 70s.

    glad you pointed out that prostitution was legal so was drugs and peep shows! so it was not all bad for the women. to day you would be in jail for that!!! and we wonder why we have the largest prison population in the world! it is funny how the Victorian prostitute looked like a rocker/ goth of later years!!!! the goths wear the original counter couture!!!

    Daaamn you would have found a husband so fast in the victorian era. Or you'd be the richest prostitute in town I guess. Both of these looks are amazing on you

    Do you have anymore historically accurate makeup tutorials in mind? I personally think it would be fun to see a Gibson Girl/Edwardian hair & make-up tutorial. It is my favorite period for fashion, hair, & make-up; I would love to see all the fun facts that you add to your videos.

    A great example for a prostitute’s makeup in the Victorian period is Belle Watling in “Gone With The Wind”. They show her makeup as heavy and very pronounced whereas Melanie Hamilton’s makeup was very subdued and that virginal, and high societal feel. Scarlett O’Hara is a combination of the two, and it grows more intense throughout the film. Honestly great film, please do a Civil War look for both North and South! Yes I know it’s technically part of the Victorian era but looking at American Victorians is different especially in wartime.

    Hi, love your videos. Watching your playlist for historically accurate period makeup, I was wondering if you ever considered Queen Esther's makeup/preparation period during the reign of King Ahasuerus. It's claimed that the women had to prepare for a full twelve months! Quite a beauty/preparation period. I think that would make for a very interesting video.

    Thank you for this. Its going to be very helpful for my Victorian Larp and costuming because I'm writing a Victorian gothic fantasy novel and intend to do a book signing in Victorian clothing and makeup.
    Also, I know it's late, but I'm sorry for your loss, I understand how you feel. I lost both my parents two years apart. I believe though, that so long as you keep their memories alive, they're never gone.

    I suspect Victorian Era prostitutes did not look that put together.
    The probably looked like clowns.

      Yeah, we're forgetting that they don't exactly have brushes to blend their makeup, nor have much tools to look well put in their look, they probably look really messy in comparison to higher status Victorian women
