1940s World War II Makeup Tutorial | History Inspired | Feat. Amber Butchart and Rebecca Butterworth


Join us in Dover Castle’s wartime tunnels as we show you the important role the humble makeup kit played during the Second World War. Dover Castle was on the front line of attack during the Second World War, and from 1939 the tunnels housed the command centre for naval operations in the English Channel. There were many women in service stationed here during this time, and among those were the Women’s Royal Naval Service (WRNS), otherwise known as the Wrens. Watch Fashion Historian Amber Butchart and Makeup Artist Rebecca Butterworth transform our model Ella Montrose with a Wren-inspired look, and find out why a bright red lip was an additional weapon in a woman’s arsenal. Our English Heritage Curator Dr Kathryn Bedford discusses what life was like for the Wrens in the tunnels, and we explore the military lives - and look - of these remarkable women. Prior to this episode, we asked our audience for tips and tricks from the 1940s and we received some fantastic homespun hacks. A special thank you to everyone who sent in a tip from the period.
