A stylish and informative guide to beauty from the golden age of Hollywood glamour, Vintage Secrets: Hollywood Beauty teaches readers how to recreate a wide variety of iconic looks ? from the pencil-thin, arched eyebrows and kohl-rimmed eyes made famous by silent-film starlet Clara Bow, to Rita Hayworth’s luxuriant locks and Marilyn Monroe’s ?blonde all over’ glow.

Inside, you’ll find a wealth of tips and tricks used by icons of the silver screen ? and learn just how far some of them were prepared to go to obtain their famous looks. Packed with instructions, illustrations and classic photographs, as well as timeless advice from fashion figureheads such as legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland and iconic designer Coco Chanel, Vintage Secrets: Hollywood Beauty is the go-to beauty guide for film fans and fashionistas alike.


Step-by-step tutorials to recreate vintage hairstyles with minimum effort ? from a Brigitte Bardot bouffant to a Veronica Lake peek-a-boo.
Simple make-up tricks from the days before plastic surgery ? from Carole Lombard’s non-surgical nose-job to Marilyn Monroe’s pre-collagen pout.
How Rita Hayworth and Sophia Loren used olive oil to enhance their looks and the ice-cold beauty secret shared by Marlene Dietrich and Jean Harlow.
The shocking extremes some stars went to in their quest for silver-screen perfection.

Vintage recipes for miracle face masks made from all natural ingredients ? such as nutmeg, honey and cinnamon.
The beauty products favoured by the stars ? from Elizabeth Arden’s Eight-Hour Cream, to Smith’s Rosebud Salve, and Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser. They were popular ? but did they work?

Packed with timeless Hollywood glamour and inspiration, Vintage Secrets: Hollywood Beauty shows us why true style never goes out of fashion.
