Sunday Precode Beauty Tip 1#

I've been reading alot of Precode movie magazines (Photoplay, Motion Picture ect) and they are filled with all sorts of great beauty and health tips and tricks from the stars. I aim to make it a regular Sunday feature with my first being the markeup regime of the Precode queen of beauty herself, blonde bombshell, Jean Harlow.



Jean's Top Tips:

  • Use a fine tipped eyebrow pencil to create a high arched and narrow eyebrow. This style 'enlarges the eye and gives clarity'.
  • 'Jean uses a true red cream rouge for her lips, blending the line perfectly and carrying the color well inside to prevent a break in tone.'
  •  'Skin-tone powder is then puffed lightly, but thoroughly over Jean's face and neck, with special attension to the nostrels, eye corners and chin.'
  • 'Jean's patnium hair has probably aroused more comment and curiousity than any one feature of any star. Naturally blonde, Jean encourages whiteness by weekly shampoos with white soap and a final rinse containing a few drops of French bluing. She brushes for softness, sets her wave with water and vinegar.'
  • Finally, 'she depends upon good health, fresh air, excercise, cream, soap and water followed by an ice water rince for her perfect skin.'

  1. Can you imagine washing your hair with white soap and a final rinse containing a few drops of French bluing?!

  2. I think they're forgetting about a vat of peroxide...Love Harlow, but come on..."naturally blond hair"?

  3. I know they suggest the bluing for ladies with gray hair. They even sell shampoo with it already in it.

  4. I agree, I would love to see someone with natural hair the same colour as Harlow's. It must be impossible!!!
