1920’s Beauty Lesson with actress Thelma Todd
Back to March 1926 we go …..
How to apply Lip Rouge like a Flapper
To apply lip rouge so that it will not show rough edges, dab rouge on the center of your lips only.
Now, with a pencil, draw the rouge out in a petal shape to create a rosebud Cupids bow effect.
How to Brush your Hair Correctly
The correct way to brush your hair: – Grasp the hair firmly and apply the lower edge of the brush, turning it gradually on the downward stroke.
The ‘incorrect way’ to brush your hair: – Never brush this way. Only do a downward stroke like this from the top back or front of the head.
How to hold a hairbrush correctly
The wrong way to hold a brush: – Never apply the brush flat to the hair. The brush simply slides over the surface and does not reach the hair deep down beneath.
The correct way to brush: – If your hair is long, don’t fail to brush ‘upward’ those stray locks at the back of the neck.
