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 colur 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]

I love how it starts out different and then converges. Like, OK, but Thai food and Nirvana (the band) are confusing GLOBALLY.

It’s a different world now.  There are superheroes and aliens and gods running rampant-but what do a bunch of 20 year olds know about that? 

This is before anyone had heard of ‘The Calvary,’ before Nick Fury lost an eye and before the Avengers were even an idea. 

This is when they were Phil, Mel, Tori and Nick: SHIELD recruits, newly minted field agents, bane of Peggy Carter’s existence.

This is Agents of SHIELD, the prequel.  

SHIELD agents are made, not born.

Verbal threat! Threatening! I’m being threatened!”
