“Pretty Girl” Issue 1: A Zine

I made this zine for a Comparative Literature class of mine. I’ve attached it below in its entirety (although I think it works best in traditional paper zine form).

“Pretty Girl” Volume 1, Issue 1: Personal Meditations on Modern Makeup

It was inspired by a satirical essay written in 1891 entitled “A Defence of Cosmetics” (here’s a link if you’re interested) and focuses largely on today’s cosmetic practices and pressures placed on women as a result. Let me know what you think!
