Look at these gorgeous women: Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich … They are all representatives of the so-called "golden age" of Hollywood. Centuries when plastic surgery was just in its infancy, and no one heard of beauty injections at all.
What secrets and tricks did these women go to to highlight their natural beauty? Some of these techniques terrify us. And what do you think?
In order to visually make her lips more plump and sensual, makeup artist Marilyn Monroe taught her a simple technique. For her lips, this gorgeous blonde used several shades of red lipstick at once. Monroe used a dark and rich red for the contour and outer corners of the lips, and filled the space in the middle with lighter ones.
Kim Kardashian and other stars who became style icons
Kim Kardashian sets the world new standards of beauty, which are instantly picked up by millions of girls from all over the world. Kim Kardashian introduced the trend for matte skin with "smeared" pores, contouring and unrealistically plump lips, as well as an hourglass figure.
In the days of Audrey Hepburn, eyelash extensions had not yet been invented, and the actress did not like to glue false eyelashes. And so she came up with her own life hack for fluffy and expressive eyelashes. After applying mascara, this Hollywood beauty "combed" each lash with a safety pin.
But it is better not to repeat this! Elizabeth Taylor, apparently having read the tales of the forever young and beautiful Egyptian queen Cleopatra, removed all the hairs from her face! It sounds creepy, but according to both beauties, after such an execution, the face looks truly radiant.
The phrase "Beauty requires sacrifice" for Marlene Dietrich is not just empty words. For crisp, bold cheekbones, this gorgeous German American woman voluntarily sacrificed multiple molars! With age, when the skin of her cheeks began to "sag", Marlene Dietrich used ordinary scotch tape … How and where she attached it is a mystery to us.
Believe it or not, the notorious "contouring" was invented much earlier than Kim Kardashian discovered it. To accentuate the cheekbones, Grace Kelly used different shades of blush: she applied light on and under the cheekbones, and with darker ones emphasized the "apples" of her cheeks.
Sophia Loren has been following her "magic" Mediterranean diet all her life. And he always keeps a bottle of olive oil close at hand. Would you like Sophia Loren's “beauty bath” recipe? It couldn't be easier: pour a bath of warm water and add a couple tablespoons of olive oil to it.
Ingrid Bergman, a fan of natural beauty, practically did not use decorative cosmetics. But she also had her own secret: to make her forehead appear "higher", the actress shaved off 1 cm from the hairline. We can safely call her the progenitor of "grooming"!
"Hollywood Wave" is a trend that we dearly fell in love with several years ago and which we are not ready to part with in the coming 2017. Do you know who was at the origin? Of course, Rita Hayworth. Luxurious curls are the hallmark of the actress. After each shampoo, Rita generously applied oil to her hair, wrapped it in a towel and walked like that for 15 minutes.
Do you know what the secret of Bette Davis' expressive eyes is? Apparently, her grandmother shared this beauty recipe with the actress: at night, Bette applied slices of fresh cucumbers on her upper eyelids, and generously lubricated the delicate skin under her eyes with ordinary petroleum jelly. No beauty injections or expensive creams with black caviar.
In her youth, the beautiful Gloria Graham was terribly complex because of her upper lip: the actress thought she was too narrow and expressionless.And Gloria found a way out: the girl put a strip of cotton wool between her lip and upper jaw. With this trick, Gloria's lips were visually plump and more sensual. Wondering what the actress did when it came to kissing?
