Hollywood starlet beauty hints bundled

September 13, 2014

Fay Wray

Fay Wray's devotion to peanut oil for beauty uses grows daily. Now she is using a little peanut oil on a small eyebrow brush to smooth the edges of her hairline, removing all the traces of powder when she has finished making up.


Luli Deste

Luli Deste, Viennese beauty, has probably the most unusual set of beauty hints in the world. She uses nothing but natural food products to beautify her skin because they contain pure natural oils and beneficial complexion vitamins. Peanut oil, or peanut butter as a facial mask, are used to soften her skin, orange juice for whitening (as we use lemon juice) and cream off the top of the milk bottle as a night cream.



Joan Fontaine

Joan Fontaine says you can persuade your nail polish to stay by you, unchipped, if you apply it in the correct consistency. If polish is too thick it will "ribbon" as you attempt to apply it, will go unevenly and so chip easily. If it is too thin, it will run to the sides of the nail. Keep polish corked tightly, in an even temperature, to keep it the correct consistency.


Wendie Barrie and Max Factor

With daytime makeup, Wendy Barrie tips just the outer lashes - from the center of the lid out - with mascara. Makes her long eyes seem even longer.


Dorothy Lamour

Have you ever struggled with your hair on dry or "electrical" days when every single lock insisted on standing straight out? Dorothy Lamour says you can bring it under control with a touch of brilliantine (choose one with an oil base). We might add another hint: Snitch a bit of brother's hair oil - provided he isn't looking.

  2. I must say, under the heading of "you learn something new everyday", the fact that multiple old Hollywood startlets used peanut oil as part of their beauty routine is definitely one of the fact that I'll be filling there today.
