Genevieve D Moreau has been collecting makeup and hair products for years. She has many different brands, from M.A.C to Smashbox and Urban Decay. “I am positive that I have hundreds maybe even thousands of dollars worth of make up and make-up accessories is in my possession right now… that’s ridiculous!” She told me as we were setting up her make up before the shoot. She began doing her own make-up as a young girl and it quickly became a daily ritual. But not just the basic foundation and mascara but full on fake eyelashes and a carefully planned color scheme for her entire face. “I would literally spend the night before planning now I would do my eyes in the morning.” Genevieve told me that she would devote hours to getting her face just right. And once that was complete, another few hours on her hair. She lived in New York City for a few years before moving to Pittsburgh in 2008, and there she said, “All of my friends would have make-up like this. We owned the place, we came across as confident woman who were not afraid to stand out.” It was a life style, which she fully embodied. Genevieve loves everything about make-up and often times helps her friends with their hair. She is definitely the one I go to if I ever have questions or about make-up or need some help in coloring my hair. She still wears her fake lashes but has cut down some on the eye shadows and lip colors. She currently works for Sally’s Beauty Supply, where she can use her experience and knowledge to help customers mostly with hair but also basic make-up needs. “I enjoy helping other feel pretty.” However, though this may seem unbelievable to some people, it is her dream to someday to open an all women mechanic shop.

A history of Genevieve’s favorite make-up time period:

The ladies of the 19th century wanted to be seen as delicate women. They would compare themselves to fragile flowers and use make-up as a means to bring out their femininity. They aimed always to look pale and interesting. Drinking vinegar and avoiding fresh air could induce paleness. Women would often discreetly use a small amount of rouge on the cheeks, but make-up was looked down on for the most part especially during the 1870s when social etiquette became more rigid.

If a woman’s skin was pale skin, it was a mark of the upper class. The pale skin showed others that she was not required to be out of doors working and being tanned by the sun. To be tan was considered unattractive and of lower class. In their homes, woman would go as far as to hang extremely heavy and dark drapes to protect them even further from the sun. Some times the ladies of this time period would even make their skin with blue paint, as to imitate the veins under pale skin.
