Austrian born actress (and engineer!) Hedy Lamarr is this week's beauty inspiration for me:
She acted in pre-war movies in Germany, later in the U.S. (under the MGM label) but also also co-invented an early form of spread spectrum communications technology, a key to modern wireless communication! Don't you love a beauty with brains?
Anyhow, this week I chose her as my beauty inspiration for her full lips and classic late 30s / 40s make up.
Have a look at the necklace she is wearing! Not unlike the bib necklaces which have been cropping up all over the place over the past few months.
Watch out for some vintage make up tutorials I will be posting over the next few weeks.
