Historical Makeup – Édith Piaf

Édith Piaf black and White Photograph

Édith Piaf is one of those singers who, even if you don’t know who she is, you’ve almost definitely heard her music at some point. For the historical makeup series, I thought I would start out with her look rather than start off with something like Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn. I’ll do those looks eventually, but I think that there are so many other famous looks which often get overlooked because of them. I’m dying to do some of my all-time favourite looks, such as Boudicca, Nefertiti and Cleopatra (the actual historical makeup, not the Hollywood versions).

That being said, I will do more modern looks like  Audrey and Marilyn, but for once I’d like to people like Édith and Nefertiti to be shown first.
