Makeup colors for six hair types

We have sketched six entirely different make-up types, and for making up the faces and for the blobs of color showing the correct tints for you to apply, we have used the actual cosmetics – lipsticks, eye-shadow and nail polish.

A. Sun Tanned Girl – an average summer type for you to copy when the weather is warm. Summer tan foundation and powder. Rouge and lipstick – Flame Red ( a vivid orange red). Blue eye-shadow and suntan nail polish.
B. Ash Blonde Girl – Flesh foundation and rachel powder. Rouge and lipstick – Nasturtium ( a delicate pale orange.) Blue eye shadow and light rust nail polish.
C. Brunette Girl with fair skin – Flesh foundation and brunette powder. Rouge and lipstick – Raspberry ( a rich red with blue tones). Brown eye shadow and burgundy nail polish.
D. The Titan Haired Girl – Flesh foundation, brunette powder. Rouge and lipstick – Rust ( brick red). Green eye shadow and robin-red nail polish.

Lipstick and Rouge Tips.

1930s-Makeup-Class--lipstick-and-rouge

Study the shape of your mouth before you apply lipstick.

Left Face – showing correct size for the mouth. Imaginary lines dropped from centre of each eye should touch the corner of your painted mouth.
Middle face – showing where to place rouge in order to make a face that is too broad appear narrower.
Right face – showing where to place rouge on a face that is too thin so that it will seem fuller in appearance.

That’s all !
