FROM THE ARCHIVES : STRATTON LIPVIEW C. 1950
I opened this section of my blog back in spring, with the intention of publishing some extra-curricular essays on the elements of the history of beauty that sparked particular interest in me during the research I am conducting for my thesis. However, despite my best intentions, my schedule has allowed me little time for my assessed essays, let alone any additional/non-assessed ones. Therefore, the following is an essay I recently submitted for one of my modules this term which looked at studying history through material culture. One of the best things about studying at masters level is being able to adapt coursework to suit your own personal research interests, so naturally I chose a article of vintage makeup for the focus of my study. Enjoy!
