Have you ever wanted to see a beauty pageant that doesn't focus on a woman's face? What about the gorgeous eyes of all these beautiful ladies? Enter: The "Miss Beautiful Eyes" pageants of the 1930s, '40s, and '50s.
These contests specifically sought after “non-pin-up types” with different means for searching out their winners. Some contests just had women place handkerchiefs over the bottom half of their faces while other contests, like this one, had contestants wear insane masks.
As wild as these masks are, they definitely do the job of making you focus on a woman's eyes and not her face. Or maybe we're just focusing on the mask and not the eyes? Thank goodness these contests are long gone.
One day, the current mask designs will be long gone. In the meantime, have fun with the options available. If you have a "Beautiful Eyes Pageant", let us know. We'd love to help with the designs.
