@COVERGIRL’s (former) feminine ideal

My, what a long way Cover Girl has come.  Time was, that Cover Girl’s feminine ideal was the blue-eyed blonde. Great if you were a blue-eyed blonde, not so great if you weren’t. That’s why I avoided Cover Girl for years.

So now, a hop and a skip down memory lane, as we take a look at Cover Girl ads from yesteryear. Cybill! Cheryl! Christie! Here they are, in all their blue eye shadow-should-be-illegal glory:
