Item details

"In this little booklet is a wealth of wisdom for women, written by a man who knows more about women's faces than anyone else in the world."

In this amazing 20-page booklet Max Factor (the famous makeup artist) can show you how to 'shine like the stars' with his tried and true makeup techniques for different face types.
The importance of the right hairstyle, roughe, eye makeup and lipstick is also shown.

Also included are three knitting patterns for designs modeled by:
Jane Russell - a Palm Beach Sweater, in bust 34-36 inches
Jean Simmons - a spider's web jumper, in bust size 34-36 inches
Ruth Roman - a cute polka-dotted cardigan, in bust size 36-38 inches

This booklet dates from the late 1940s/early 1950s, and features famous movie stars like Lucille Ball, Marelene Dietrich and Elizabeth Taylor on the cover.

This listing is for the above PDF pattern, available by Instant Download (in the Downloads section of your Etsy account). I can also email it to you instead if requested.

All my vintage patterns are out of copyright (public domain) and by purchasing a pattern, you’ve ensured that another copy exists, somewhere in the world. You’re not letting history disappear! Public domain means you can make anything from the pattern to sell (just please don't resell or pirate the PDF, thanks!).

These patterns have been pre-loved down the through the years, and original owner's names and notations may be visible on the scans.

You'll need Adobe to open the file, however I can print and post for an additional charge - just convo me if needed. Otherwise, the pattern is available in your Etsy account under ‘Downloads’ or can be emailed to you within 24-48 hours of purchase to an email address if requested.
