1964 Beauty Tips and Trends

A few beauty tips and trends from 1964:

- A deep suntan is in style now. Ads for suntan lotions and oils occur frequently in summer magazines.

- Long fingernails become popular as women have more leisure time due to time (and nail) saving appliances. The newest nail polish shades are neutrals and rose pinks.

- Eyebrows are always neatly shaped and colored with brow make-up for drama.

- As with nails, the new lipstick shades are neutrals and rosy pinks.

- Eyeliner is drawn on wide and swept up at the ends for that cat's-eye look.

- False eyelashes supplement your own.

- Blush is relatively new and is used to hollow and contour cheeks.

- Hair is teased for day and up-swept at night.

- Pale eyeshadows complement the current pastels in your wardrobe.

- Two-toned hair with streaks or tips are a new trend in hair.

- Matte finishes rule, from powdered faces to blotted lips.
