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.
