When it comes to vintage style makeup, we have to admit we’re a little obsessed (cat eye, anyone?). So, when we stumbled across these gems, we simply couldn't keep them to ourselves. These videos, dating back to the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘70s have left us feeling incredibly inspired- so grab a cuppa, sit back and get watching

In this little clip, Max Factor shows us how to get Claudette Colbert’s '30s look. Think contouring, luscious lashes, rouged cheeks and a bold lip.

A classic tutorial from the ‘40s that teaches us how to master it all. Foundation, blending rouge and applying lipstick? Sorted.

Ever wondered how to perfect Elizabeth Taylor’s smoky eye look? In this scene from The Driver’s Seat, let the lady herself show you how it’s done.
