Some of you may think it’s stunning, some may think it’s cheesy. I personally want to put these beauties in vintage frames and decorate my washroom and vanity table. And by that I mean stick a poster up on the bathroom door and maybe put a frame or two on my set of drawers. These days beauty industry has taken a totally different approach in their modern ads, but which version do you prefer?
Colgate is now known for offering us the dream of having pearly whites but back in the day they had a beauty trick up their sleeve. This gorgeous ad showcases their collection of talc powders and I kinda want them all. Have no use for them? What do you think our makeup setting powders are made of?!
Covergirl is famous for showcasing their love for different types of women so I can’t help but love them back. From Ellen DeGeneres to Sofia Vergara the mass brand is clearly letting us know that they make makeup for real women. I have to say I have great respect for the fact that even now, in 2013, they still have the same messaging. You’ll see that in their new foundation ads featuring Taylor Swift.
Revlon is quickly becoming huge in the world of makeup and nail polish these days. This old-school advert is adorable and romantic, don’t you think? I prefer this to the celeb focus that they have in their ads today. Don’t get me wrong I love a healthy dose of the stunning Emma Stone as much as the next person but do we need that much Photoshop? Yawn.
Oh the luxury brands. Beauty buffs can all agree that the luxury brands can’t go wrong in our eyes. Well except with the price point of course. Aside from that, we would all love a vanity stocked up with sleek black packaging. So many of us have Pinterest boards loaded with these vintage beauty ads that make us just want to respond with – “Yes of course I want to put on some Chanel now.” Much like Dior, the brands modern day approach is to just throw in a pretty model or celeb wearing the makeup. Oh with nice hair too. I say bring back the classic, coffee-table book cover, style ads.
