When you close your eyes and think about 1960s makeup trends, you might imagine the earliest years of beehives, cut creases, and matte, porcelain-like skin. It's a look you probably recognize from musicals like Hairspray, but it's actually makeup artist Peter Lamas' least favorite style of the decade.
Peter Lamas is a well-known celebrity hairstylist and beauty guru. He was the mastermind behind Jackie O’s hair for 16 years! A few of the other celebrities he’s worked with include Audrey Hepburn, Diana Ross, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Kate Winslet, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Sharon Stone, and Cindy Crawford. OMG, right?! You don’t get to be a celebrity hairstylist without having top tier training.
Despite her otherwise minimal makeup, Kennedy never shied away from bright lipstick, and often matched her pout to the exact shade of red or pink that she was wearing. Try pairing a classic red dress with Chanel's Rouge Coco Lipstick in 'Gabrielle'to give the trend a try.
Don't get me wrong: I love liquid lipsticks, rainbow highlighters, and Kylie Jenner, but sometimes, I daydream about a simpler beauty era.

That meant giving my mind and face a break from plumped-up lips, strobed cheekbones, and an airbrushed, James Charles-esque complexion.
There are many triggers for body preoccupation and negative body image in our daily lives, one of the most compelling being that few of us can ever comfortably achieve and maintain the type of body promoted as ideal, most women would rather reveal their age than their weight. Focusing on our bodies in a negative way, can provide a distraction from other struggles in our lives, difficult feelings that we don’t know how to handle and problems for which there are no simple solutions. So we may unconsciously shift our focus to fixing our bodies.
One of the most famous early depictions of a human is the "Venus of Willendorf” – a tiny 4-inch statuette of a very full-figured, voluptuous woman. Found in 1908 by archaeologist Josef Szombathy near the town of Willendorf, Austria, it is believed to be over fifteen thousand years old. The statue, which may have been a reflection of women at that time, probably was worshipped and cherished for its beauty and curves.
Have you ever heard the acronym "NIMBY?" It means "Not In My Backyard." Usually this phrase is used to refer to homeowners who are angered at the idea of a landfill or prison being built near their houses. At the first whiff of the possibility of trash or inmates being dumped near their castles, NIMBY is the cry heard all the way to City Hall. In other words, "Don't Mess With My Space." Numerous community activists have actually succeeded in preventing the dreaded strip mall or strip joint from being constructed in their "backyard."
