Timeless beauty from Woman's Day Magazine

Hi lovely ladies,
Woman's Day magazine has been posting helpful beauty tips for the past 75 years.  Following are a list of them and the year that they were posted.  When you look at some of the dates that they were posted you see how timeless they actually are!  I will post more of these tips tomorrow. (it's a long list)

Gorgeous Hair

Camouflage roots by zigzaging your part rather than making it straight.  Feb 1981

Brush hair from roots to ends nightly.  This distributes natural oils throughout the shaft and gives hair a healthy sheen.  Oct. 2005

Be direct when telling your hairstylist what you want, and bring photos from magazines of styles you like.  April 1971

Doing your color yourself?  Don't make too drastic a change.  Stay within one or two shades of your natural color.  October 1955

Comb wet hair like the pros:  Hold a handful at a time and work from center to ends, then scalp to center.  March 1963

Never let a stylist interfere with the natural hairline on your neck.  The hair there is cowlicklike and will stick out when it grows.  February 1976

Always rinse out conditioner with cold water to seal the cuticle and promote shine.  September 2009

Protect hair from sun damage with a scarf or hat.  June 1938

Keep a blowout lasting days longer by sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase.  September 2009

Change your part to boost body and volume.  April 2010

Avoid frizz:  Use only a widetooth comb, especially when hair is dry.  January 1940

If you color your hair, look for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, which don't contain harsh detergents.  September 2009

Stop flyaway hair!  Spray Static Guard on your comb or brush.  Or smooth an antistatic dryer sheet along your head.  February 1990

Beautiful Brows

Soften skin before tweezing by dabbing with a cotton ball soaked in warm water or cream.  April 1963

Tweeze in the direction the hair grows.  April 1971

Don't change the place where your brows peak and never pencil the whole brow.  Instead, only fill in holes.  November 1976

Use only the side of a sharpened brow pencil-not the pointed tip-so as not to draw a hard line.  Jan 1938

For unruly brows, apply hairspray to an old toothbrush, then brush brows upward and outward.  September 1992

Bright eyes

Treat your eye area gently.  This is the most delicate part of your face.  Cleanse with care; blot, never
rub.  September 1961

Reduce puffy eyes by splashing with cold water or applying a cold compress (ice cubes in a washcloth): 15 seconds on, 15 seconds off.  October 1987

When you put on mascara, don't lower your chin-that's how mascara gets on our lid.  April 1971

Get eyeshadow to stay in place by priming lids with moisturizer and foundation.
 October 2011
Always use your ring finger to apply moisturizer or concealer to the eye area.  
  It puts the least amount of pressure on the skin.  November 1990
Never put mascara on lower lashes; it casts a shadow on your undereye, making 
the area look darker.  March 1968
Open up eyes: Apply a light eyeshadow (like ivory or gold) just above the
 lashline and along inner corners of your eyes.  March 2010
Stop pencil eyeliner from smudging by applying powder shadow (in a matching
 or slightly darker shade) over the pencil.  November 1992
Switch to brown mascara for a softer look for day.  February 2010
