Francis Dee – 1932

Never before have the eyes been so carefully studied and cared for.
With eye shadow for milady of the drawing-room, as well as for milady of the stage, came a careful study of eye effects and hundreds of instructions on how to use eye cosmetics.To bring out the “it” in your eyes so that they may fulfill that old pun, “the look that lies in a woman’s eyes – it lies, and lies, and lies !”

Francis Dee has two of the most beautiful orbs in Hollywood. Here she tells us about eye make-up, how to care for them, and how to use them ! That all important “it-ness”, don’t you think?
