Mid-Century Musings: Mary Quant & Makeup

This free online talk is part of our Mid-Century Musings series, a collection of ten-minute online talks that offer a glimpse into Mid-Century Modern style and history.

Fashion designer and entrepreneur Mary Quant shook up the cosmetics industry during the mid-twentieth century with her own makeup line. Quant’s range aimed to give the average young woman access to the more exciting products used by professional models of the time. From waterproof mascara to brightly colour eye pastel crayons, Quant made the process of putting on makeup fun and experimental.

Celebrated in our current exhibition Mid-Century Modern: Art & Design from Conran to Quant, learn how Quant livened up mid-century makeup with Dovecot team member Leanne Dewar.
