Sharrie Williams, author of The Maybelline Story, is an original descendant of the Maybelline family. Her Great uncle, Tom Lyle Williams, founded the Maybelline Co in 1915 and sold it in 1967. Sharrie shares her families photos, stories and vintage Maybelline ads.
1941 Vintage Maybelline ad was produced just four years after Amelia
Earhart's plane was lost and War was declared on the Japan.
When I think about Amelia Earhart's plane crashing onto a reef off a remote island in the Pacific Ocean I
can't help but wonder if her courageous Spirit wasn't there to help
direct and protect our boys during one of the darkest hours in American
history. I know she still inspires me to dream bigger and bolder and go beyond my own comfort zone. How about you? What do you think about Amelia Earhart's incredible journey into the unknown with the heart of a Lion.
Some cosmetics found in Amelia's kit was Freckle cream, rouge and a broken mirror from a compact. Is
it possible Maybelline was also on the plane. If so this is what it would have looked like in 1937.
