Health & Beauty / /
In the twentieth century Hollywood stars had their own routine to maintain their beauty. What is interesting is that they, in their own way, were trying to take care of their skin, not assisted by whole bunch of treatments that we know today.
Among the bizarre habits were those of Joan Crawford, who was mending her eyes with pine water to get them shiner and thus keept her fresh look. Learned by Catherine Hepburn, she used to wash her hair with six eggs and she always had the expression on her face as she confirms and agrees about everything. She also used to mix red wine with a little rum and that was her hair shampoo. She often prepared herself a hair mask. One of her favorites consisted of oat, hot water, honey, baking soda and whole egg.
"You need to do this routine before your husband returns from work," that was Crawford’s advice. “Husbands do not know how come that we are beautiful and cherished, because during the time we put the mask on our face, we are terribly ugly and that's why we need to make our rituals before he comes home. "
She would also add how important it is always to have a smile on your face. Smiling is the most important part of your beauty.
Marilyn Monroe used five different lipstick shades to achieve the desired color on her lips. The dark shades were for the edges of the lips, and in the middle she put the bright lipstick, most often Vaseline. They say it took more than an hour to achieve the desired look of her lipsticks and we can clearly conclude that Monroe had a lot of time available.
She slept with a bra on because she was convinced that it was the only way to keep her breasts in shape. She used several types of creams for her face because she was obsessed with the youthful look and refused to remove the facial hair from her face because she claimed they were the reason for her shiny look.
Marlene Dietrich was once one of the highest-paid Hollywood stars, a sex symbol, openly talking about her bisexuality which was taboo at the time. Dietrich was known for her demands on film sets, especially when it was about her wigs. She had very weak hair and few knew about it. For this reason, Dietrich used to hire the leading firm at the time, that in turn worked for Max Factor. On her wigs it was added a real gold dust to mimic the shine. Golden dust at that time coasted $ 60, which is equal to today's $ 842. Max Factor did not like to spend a lot on the gold dust, so the hairdresser used to combed the wigs after being used and thus save half of the gold.
Audrey Hepburn’s make-up artist, Alberto De Rossi, applied mascara on her lashes and then separated them with sharp knife very carefully. That way, for every shot or movie shooting, her eyes seemed bigger. After the death of her make-up artist, Audrey announced that it would be easier if she quit her film career than to have a new make-up artist.
