The popularity of modern styles at the beginning of the 1960s brought huge plastic flower ornaments, heavy makeup, especially around the eyes, and false eyelashes for women. Men accepted jewelry as part of their wardrobe, starting with the love beads hung around their necks in the 1960s and ending the period with multiple chains of gold adorning their necks and chests, bracelets around their wrists, and rings on their fingers.

One trend for excess continued during these lean years, however. The fashion for wearing heavy makeup started during the 1920s lasted well into the next decades. Women blushed their cheeks with rouge, darkened their lips with a variety of lipsticks, and lengthened and thickened their eyelashes with mascara. According to Jane Mulvagh in Vogue History of 20th Century Fashion, in 1931 Vogue magazine reported that we are all painted ladies today, adding Now we feel undressed unless we have the right shade of face powder, and if we lose our lipstick, we lose our strongest moral support. The rationing, or limiting, of luxuries during World War II highlighted the importance of makeup. Mulvagh noted that the British government tried to ban cosmetics at the outbreak of war, but fortunately withdrew this ruling.

The person behind the object leaves me uninspired. In real life, I love women for what they stand for, but in depicting them on canvas they are reduced to colourful graphic images only. The beauty of a woman to me is closely connected with the fruit, dead fish and stuffed birds I also enjoy painting death and decay is another undeniable source of inspiration. Beauty doomed to rot.

Even relatively conservative frames were produced in bold and unusual shapes, colors, and patterns, and were given model names such as Torrid, Vivacious, and Peekini. For men, new styles with clean lines and heavy plastic frames were popular, the most famous being the Ray-Ban Wayfarer, introduced in 1952.
