THE PEEK-A-BOO BANGS
Red rouge with pink undertones were used to get that rosy look. Bright pink with fuchsia undertones were also popular. Rouge was applied on top of the cheekbones and brushed up towards the temples of the face.
EYES / EYEBROWS
Since 1940s went for that natural look, they preferred a more natural pair of eyebrows but with well defined arches. Eyebrows were groomed with a touch of petroleum jelly for a more neat Hollywood look.
Muted grays and browns were popular for the eyes. Black or dark brown for eyeliners but only small amounts were used. The star of the 1940s eye makeup were the lashes. Heavy coats of mascara were applied on the upper lashes.
Lips during the 1940s should appear fuller. The upper lips were exaggerated a little bit to have that larger fuller mouth.

...and of course who can forget Rosie the Riveter? Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon in the United States which represents the women who worked in the factories during WWII. Rosie the Riveter was a symbol of feminism and women's economic power.
