Question by Jen : pancake makeup??
I’m going to take some classes to be a CNA and even though the place Ill actually work at doesnt mind tattoos the place offering the classes and clinicals doesnt want tattoos showing. I can cover my 3/4 sleeve with a shirt under my scrubs but I have a tattoo on the back of my neck (it was done poorly so its really light) and someone had suggested looking into pancake makeup, so what is pancake makeup and where can I buy some??
Answer by littlexgirl325
go to ulta, they have a huuuge selection of makeup, and some that is specialy for hiding scars & tatttoos! it really works =]
What do you think? Answer below!
pancake makeup is made my maxfactor. it a liquid to powder compact. its hard to find right now tho since alot of stores got rid of maxfactor due to them completely changing the line. the vendor for maxfactor tho told me that the pancake and panstick make up is still the same formula so if u want to try that it would prob be cheaper than finding the tatto hiding make up. i’m not sure where to buy the tattoo hiding makeup but when i was getting married all the websites had ads for it.
Glamourdaze The History of Makeup – Max Factor, Elisebeth Arden ...
Post World War One , the Flapper look came into fashion and with it came cosmetics: Dark kohl eyes,Red lipstick, Red nail polish and it was fashionable for women to use bleach to keep their skin a pale milky white – in otherwords a good palette for cosmetics !
Of course Coco Chanel helped make the suntan popular and heralded the introduction of fake tan products helping both men and women to achieve that sun-kissed look !
In Asia, skin whitening continued to represent the ideal of beauty.
She invented the concept of the “makeover” in her salons.
Arden collaborated with A. Fabian Swanson, a chemist, to create a “fluffy” face cream. The success of the cream, Venetian Cream Amoretta, and corresponding lotion, Arden Skin Tonic, led to a long-lasting business relationship. This revolutionized cosmetics, bringing a scientific approach to formulations.
Other innovations included creating foundations that matched a person’s skin tone; creating the idea of the “Total Look” in which lip, cheek, and fingernail colors matched or coordinated; and the first to make a cosmetics commercial shown in movie houses.
During World War II, Arden recognized the changing needs of the American woman entering the work force. She showed women how to apply makeup and dress appropriately for careers outside the home.
Arden also introduced modern eye makeup to North America after her formal training in Paris in 1912.
Great post! I love the ice face pack HA HA! You know it's a shame that Max Factor has been eclipsed by so many other brands. He really was the father inventor of fantastic products.
I believe there is a Helena Rubenstein store in NYC. Arden is still around of course. But to see Estee Lauder get so global~ the business trajectory of these old school brands is fascinating.
fascinating post! PS: I have a question about permission to use one or two images from your post on 1930s shoes. Could I include the pics of Greta Garbo's shoes (maybe also Carole Lombard's) in a listing for a pair of shoes in my Etsy shop? The shoes I'm listing appear to be identical to Garbo's and I wanted potential buyers to see this! If you could let me know whether or not you grant permission to do this on my blog or via a convo through my shop if you are an Etsy user, that would be GREAT!
It just keeps getting better and better on this site! I used to live in Hollywood and when the Max Factor Museum was still it's original self – it was sheer heaven. There was an area devoted to Rita Hayworth and how she was tranformed into her glamour self.
I also worked for the '30's actress Binnie Barnes and there is a scroll that was signed when the museum opened and her signature is there in the middle, large as life. Oh, the things they had in there! Bring Max Factor back.
im now doing a make-up course, and there is sooo much to learn & read! im lovin it all!! such a massive shame about Max factor, he is the GOD and without him we wouldnt have half of what we do, with alot of cheaper products comming onto the market its making it hard for the ones that started it, if they can get a NYC eyeliner for 3 pounds, their not going to really pay about double for one from arden, factor etc, dont be stingy buy the best!! haha xx
