I’m really into watching vintage adverts and films and can spend hours on youtube watching old adverts or informational films.
I’m especially interested in the old skincare ads and beauty guides put together to help women look their best so when I stumbled across this video I was really excited.
This short films shows the 20s and 30s Hollywood star Constance Bennett doing her morning routine whilst she gives the watcher valuable grooming and makeup tips.
Not only is this a fascinating watch but I still think it’s core message has value even today. Ok so this may not be completely relevant in 2016, most of us don’t have maids running our baths or access to the skin products she uses let alone knowing exactly what a facial stimulant cream or glow base is but the emphasis of having pride in your appearance and taking care of yourself can still be applied today.
As Constance says herself:
“Feeling beautiful and natural is the birthright of every woman.”
Let me know in the comment if you watch the video, if you found that interesting Youtube channel Glamourdaze many more vintage beauty videos to explore.
