I was also glad to see that there were some amazing women of colour featured in her Makeup Muses sections at the end of each chapter, from Meena Kumari to Anna May Wong.

I also loved that, while each woman profiled in the Makeup Muses sections obviously contributed to beauty trends, Lisa also focused on her accomplishments outside of makeup or being pretty. I do wish that in her chapter on White she had talked a little bit more about the racial implications of paleness as an entrenched beauty standard, as I felt she skirted around the issue a bit.

As someone in the last semester of a Cultural Studies degree, I am very interested in how cultural objects affect everyday life and vice versa. Makeup obviously is a part of everyday life not for everyone, obviously, but for many , and I felt like Face Paint was a very thorough and cogent exploration of the dialogue between makeup and culture.

And, of course, when examining the role of makeup in the everyday lives of women, I think we must examine how makeup works to uphold the patriarchy — an uncomfortable, difficult, and perhaps impossible act of reconciliation for feminist beauty-lovers. Some of the vintage makeup ads are so intoxicatingly beautiful! When I first saw other bloggers posting about this book I was kind of like- meh.

Plus the cover is just nice to look at in its own right. Definitely worth it — great to read but also lovely to just flip through.

Let me know what you think of it! Great review — I agree with you on all the points. And nice job on showing the illustrations! I wanted to do that but my new blog is mostly about not taking photographs if I can help it, lol.
