Maybelline coins the word Ultra for Beauty.

"Ultra Brow Brush-On is the Secretthe ad read in 1965, and a new word for Beautiful was coined by Maybelline.

The Ultra Girl takes the place of the IT Girl, in 1965

Here I am on the left with my sister Donna,
 the Ultra Saffrons.

With my best friend Pearl.  Senior's in High School and me with dreams of becoming a Maybelline Model.

So when I graduated I drove my blue and white hard top 57 Chevy straight up to Unk-Ile's and asked him point blank if I could be a Maybelline Model.  He said I certainely had the the eyes, the personality,

and the talent, but, that if he let me have such a special position it would cause jealousy with the rest of the girls in the family.  "But, Sharrie," he said, "if you go to college and get a degree in Marketing I will open every door for you!"

Did I take my great uncle's advise, knowing he had the power to take me straight to the top of the ad game?  What do you think?  What would you have done?
