1956 Beauty and the Beach

What did beauty editors suggest you keep in your 1956 beach bag? This article from the May 1956 edition of Charm magazine recommends bringing plenty of makeup with you to the beach.  Specifically, waterproof makeup for your face, eyes, and lips.  “There’s even waterproof body makeup to give you a fake all-over tan in case you haven’t earned one yet.”  No mention of sunscreen. Thankfully, times have changed.
