Vintage Beauty: Face Shapes

Earlier I blogged about this fab 1947 beauty book I picked up.  I mentioned I would be sharing some of book’s tips and tricks, so are you ready for the first entry into the world of vintage beauty?

The following pages from Erin & Bud Westmore’s book Beauty, Glamour and Personality offer up images of the five face shapes, which include oval, round, square, oblong and triangular, followed by dos and don’ts for each! The last pages in this entry regard the use of rouge.  Click the images for larger, readable pictures.





So, what’s your face shape?

Next up, dos and don’ts regarding hair!

  1. None of those are me at all – boo! I’m a heart shape I think – I thought the triangle one would work but it’s upside down 😉
    Cute article though isn’t it!
