Welcome to Episode 13, where we chat with special guest (and Colleen's client!) Lauren Slusser about her experience going makeup-free for the past decade! Lauren is a filmmaker, comic artist, and doula. Originally from Oakland, CA, she is currently studying children's media at Teacher's College, Columbia University. Prior to moving to NY, she studied Directing at UCLA and worked at Nickelodeon as the Post Production Manager for the preschool series Dora the Explorer. She's an amazing human with a fascinating perspective, so you'll definitely want to tune into this one!
Welcome to Episode 12, where Lydia and I will debunk the rule: "Women should wear makeup." This was a fascinating rule to research and uncover, since it has so many personal, societal, and historical implications. In our current age, it's considered a rebellious act to not wear makeup. A feminist choice, if you will. But in the 1920s, when the "ideal woman" was supposed to be chaste and virginal, it was rebellious to wear lipstick and rouge. It's fascinating how much context informs the argument! Tune in to learn more about that, as well as some reasons why this rule exists and why you might consider breaking it!
