In Britain, make-up might have been hard to find, but it was worn with pride and became a symbol of the will to win. ‘Put your best face forward,’ encouraged a 1942 Yadley advertisement in Churchillian tones. ‘War, Woman and Lipstick' ran a celebrated Tangee campaign. Bright red was the favourite wartime colour for lips and nails and lipstick names were often patriotic: Louis Phillippe's Patriotic Red; Fighting Red by Tussy and Grenadier - The new Military red created by Tattoo, effective with air force blue and khaki.

During wartime, a subtle change had taken place in the marketing and the perception of make-up. It was no longer about making a woman seem ‘dainty’, but making her look and feel strong. Rosie the Riveter became a wartime icon in the USA, representing the six million women working in factories for the war effort. [Rockwell] portrayed Rosie as a vast figure in work dungarees, her short sleeves revealing arms the size of prize-winning hams. Behind her hangs the stars and stripes, squashed carelessly under her feet is a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, and on her mighty lap rests a lunch box and a huge riveting machine like an enormous gun. [Her] henna red curls, lipsticked mouth and painted finger nails stress her femininity, emphasising the fact that make-up too was a weapon of war [Madeleine Marsh, Compact and Cosmetics: Beauty from the Victorian Times to the Present Day]

Sally, take my hand, travel south crossland
Put out the fire don’t look past my shoulder
The exodus is here, the happy ones are near
Let’s get together before we get much older

Richard Ayoade has signed a three book deal with publishing house, Faber & Faber.
The first of the books will be called Ayoade On Ayoade, and is scheduled for publication in November 2014. The book is described as being about “a film-maker exploring himself, respectfully, insightfully, and sometimes by surprise….it is both a celebration and a slap: a call to arms for those without weapons. It is a eulogy; it is a rebirth; it is both recognition and re-ignition of this flickering myth we call film.” Blimey.
