25 Glamorous Makeup Photos of Young Beauties in the 1920s

The earliest historical record of makeup comes from the 1st Dynasty of Egypt (c.3100-2907 BC). Romans widely used cosmetics by the middle of the 1st century AD.

By the late 1920s, visible makeup was considered a must by rural women but was still frowned upon by the country girls.

Take a look these vintage photos to see what the makeup of young beauties in the 1920s looked like.
