Talking Tees Valley: Make Up and Beauty

10 June 2022

Each month we use objects and photos from our museums in the Tees Valley to take a closer look at the lives and stories from people in our area.

This time we are exploring the make up and beauty collections we hold.

Make up and changing beauty standards have a long history. In this months newsletter we are looking at what we hold in our collections and finding out about the changing beauty trends over the decades.
