Maybelline Beauties in the early 1910s.

Mabel Normand, in the early 1910's, was a forerunner for the great Hollywood Stars, who represented Maybelline, throughout the 20th Century.


By the time she first showed up at the Biograph studio in 1910, Normand was already a "Gibson Girl" (a model for illustrator Charles Dana Gibson) and she was not yet 18.


Most of the great beauties of the early 1910s were stage actresses who came to Hollywood looking for a career in Silent Films.  By 1915, when Lash-Brow-Ine
 was introduced to the public, Stars like Mabel Normand, had already set the standard for beauty.                                

Tom Lyle Williams saw an opening in the market that had been ignored - Eyes - the one feature on the face that had been overlooked.  He wrote a little book, called The Woman Beautiful, introducing Lash-Brow-Ine, how to use it, and what it can do to naturally enhance a woman's beauty.


Ethel Clayton, a beautiful stage and screen actresses, represented Lash-Brow-Ine.  Her pretty blond looks were reminiscent of the famous Gibson Girl drawings by Charles Dana Gibson.
