Everybody Loves Lucy

Aside from being America’s favorite red-headed screwball comedienne Lucille Ball also stands as a timeless beauty and a true inspiration. I grew up watching her get into all sorts of wacky scenarios on the famed classic sitcom I Love Lucy, and it still finds its way onto my television just about every morning. I always admired Lucille for her lack of inhibition as well as her grace and class, not to mention her beauty.

She had such a fabulous style, to which I think the biggest contribution was her confidence. She wasn’t dictated to by trends, she simply made her own. She created a style uniquely molded to her own personal taste and people surely responded to it. She was proof that the most important thing you can be is yourself.

Something I’ve recently noticed as I’ve watched classic reruns of I Love Lucy is her make-up. I’m positively fascinated by her make-up. The skinny, high-arched brows, the full and pouty lips; these were things my eight-year-old self couldn’t see for all the comedic glory. It’s almost as if I’m rediscovering the show now as each new scene brings even more fabulous make-up. Every day I think, “Oh, I want to try that!” But that’s Lucy. After all these years, she’s finding new ways to inspire me!

"Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.
You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."

lucy is simply the greatest! i believe when she started doing background in films in the 30s they made her shave off her eyebrows so that they could be penciled in for that perfect thin line that was so popular at the time, that or because she had to keep them so perfectly thin they just didn't really grow back. so it's really some incredible pencil work there.

Oh, I didn't even think of that, thank you! I remember the first time I saw Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night and I couldn't get over how thin and pencil-y her eyebrows were. It's such a theatrical, vintage look. I love it.

I love this!

It's so funny to see someone very pretty like Lucy act so silly. I have a handful of favorite things she has worn in that show. Might even make a fun post sometime...

I love her eyelashes in that last photo. Wow!

You should absolutely do that! I was actually going to do just that, but I couldn't find pictures of any of the outfits!

I know, that last one really puts an emphasis on the make-up. So pretty!
