When it came to skincare, it definitely was nowhere near as complex as it is today. For the average woman, a face towel, warm water and moisturiser was all that you needed. We all know that few could work a camera like the one and only Marilyn Monroe and she credited her subtle glow and photogenic reputation to wearing a reflective moisturiser as a base under her make-up which always caught the light just perfectly.
For make-up removal a woman of the 50’s would apply cold cream to her face in gentle spiral motions and wipe this off with cotton wool. We have adapted this classic slightly all in favour of a simpler beauty routine. Our make-up melts will gently remove your make-up without any need to reach for the cold cream! Just add water. Once all the old make-up is removed, gently flush the face with cool water to minimise pores and seal in that much needed moisture.
Last but not least no 50's look was ever complete without a sultry red lip. Marilyn Monroe did this best by always accentuating her lips with a lovely glossy red. In her own words - "A smile is the best make-up any girl can wear". We couldn't agree more.
