Today we have everything to do beautiful makeup and hair styling. Every month, beauty brands offer innovative products that, without a beautician, will create the effect of plump lips and clear cheekbones, as well as smoothen curly hair without a stylist, or, conversely, help create curls. But before the girls (especially famous all over the world) had a difficult time. But they did not despair and came up with life hacks, which we still use in an already improved form.
Vivien Leigh: Lip Augmentation
Previously, there could be no question of any beauty injections, but thin lips were in fashion for a long time. But the actress Vivien Leigh was not sure of the symmetry of her lips, so when she brought her lower lip, she went out of her contour with a liner. Surprisingly, many makeup artists and bloggers are now using this technique!
Marilyn Monroe: plump lip effect
Marilyn naturally had rather plump lips, but she wanted them to look even more voluminous. These days, we would use gloss or lipstick with a push up effect in this case, but at that time Monroe asked the make-up artist to apply at least five shades of lipstick. Darker tones were painted on the outer corners of her lips, and lighter ones - in the middle.
Audrey Hepburn: creating lush eyelashes
Lush thick eyelashes were the main feature of Audrey Hepburn. But for their sake, the makeup artist of the actress Alberto de Rossi had to separate each eyelash with a pin after mascara. In our time, such a thing is difficult to imagine, but it is dangerous to repeat. To make the lashes look perfect, we choose the right brush or use special attachments for combing and separating the lashes.
Grace Kelly: Face Strobing
The Princess of Monaco invented strobing long before Kim Kardashian introduced it into fashion. Grace often used several shades of powder and blush: she applied lighter shades to her cheekbones, and brighter shades to the apples of her cheeks.
Carol Lombard: nose alignment
Carol Lombard injured her nose after a car accident, so it didn't look very flat. To hide this flaw, the celebrity applied a light powder to the bridge of the nose. Now every girl knows this secret, she only uses a highlighter.
Elizabeth Taylor: facial hair removal
Elizabeth Taylor, as her acquaintances said, was concerned with perfect skin. To do this, she removed blonde facial hair with a razor. Fortunately, now we have at our disposal products for epilation of any area of the face and body, which are also completely safe.
Dorothy Dandridge: her own lipstick shade
Many celebrities today release beauty collections with shades that they like. But this option was not available many years ago. However, Dorothy Dandridge still created the lipstick of her dreams, mixing two shades (red and orange), she got an unusual coral tone.
Mae West: coconut oil for skin hydration
Only recently has coconut oil become a must-have product of all the stars and bloggers. At the same time, many years ago, Mae West adored him. And she, like us now, applied oil to her face and body to moisturize her skin.
Katharine Hepburn: Facial Cleansing
Katharine Hepbrn once invented home cleaning. She mixed sugar and lemon and massaged it onto her face. As a result, her skin was always smooth and even. But we recommend repeating the actress only after consulting a dermatologist.
Brigitte Bardot: fixing curls
Bridget is said to have adored curly hair. To get the curl, she twisted the strand around her finger, and used her own saliva to secure the curl. Lifehack Bardo sounds a little strange these days, it's good that we have a lot of tools for both creating curls and fixing them.
