I think they were performing, therefore, the extra makeup, so you can see it from a distance.

I love the costumes, though!!!!

I've never heard anyone get offended by it. We use it all the time.

Of course it's not suitable for formal or official use, just casual conversation.

Aracy de Almeida, one of the best from the Golden Age of Radio. She was a personal friend of Noel Rosa, one of the greatest samba composers of all time, and who deemed her the best interpreter to his songs. She used to be called "Samba in person". Knowledgeable in psychoanalysis and classical music, she never left her original suburban neighborhood.
She died in 1988. Youtube her. You will find her songs but also her participantion in a new talent singer tv show where she played the role of the grumpy judge, hence the face she had on the picture above.
