Vintage Makeup Video From the 1930s

Get Your Makeup Advice From 1938

"Lady, do you know where to place the accent, so far as your facial appearance is concerned?" this amazing vintage beauty tutorial asks. Modern gentlewomen take heed: these long-ago beauty gurus know a thing or two about outlining eyebrows to "provide a pleasing and artistic frame for the liquid orbs," making gray hair "an asset instead of a liability," and even wearing the right color glasses.

Not all the advice is stuff we'd endorse today, but it's all pretty charming regardless. If you love old movies and the styling of bygone eras, this ancestor to the modern YouTube video will make your day.

Is it me but in the first model, did they add some false lashes? If so, how deceptive.
