A strong-willed actress, Katherine Hepburn had very much her own style – natural, minimalist and slightly androgynous. This meant a lot of neutral tones and flawless skin that allowed her to wear sheer, natural make-up and still look radiant. To keep her complexion in tip-top condition, she would exfoliate regularly. She would use a mixture of sugar, a tiny amount of warm water and a squeeze of lemon juice massaged into the skin and followed up with a splash of ice-cold water.
Forget the lemon juice our treatments here at Beauty Elite will keep your complexion looking flawless.
American actress Joan Crawford didn’t use fancy products to keep her legendary face smooth and taut – she chewed gum in the belief that it firmed up her jaw and help to drain the toxins out from under her chin. She was also religious about her cleansing regime, and would splash her face 25 times with ice cold water after every wash.
If you want a firm jaw, we can achieve that so throw away the gum.
The secret to Jane Russell’s sexy signature style was simple – she always matched her lipstick to her nail polish. The idea of co-ordinating the two was actually only developed in 1939. Legend has it that Revlon founder Charles Revlon was dining in a posh restaurant when he noticed a woman dabbing her mouth with a napkin. He saw that her nail colour jarred with the shade of her lips and a new beauty concept was born.

German actress Marlene Dietrich is considered to be one of the greatest actresses of all time, but was also highly prized for her sculptured glamour. She believed in accentuating the natural lines of her face with shading, shaping and contouring. One of her most startling features were her perfectly shaped brows. She achieved this look by shaving them off and drawing them on with kohl, as was the fashion in the 1930s. She also never used mascara on her lower lashes, as she believed it cast a shadow and made her look tired.
