Wallander would never forget the sound Martinsson made, the way he wimpered like a child in front of the inexplicable thing before him on the floor. […] Wallander realised that Martinsson was close to tears. […] He saw that Martinsson was shaking. He wondered what he looked like himself. [One Step Behind]

How Beauty Procedures Looked In The 1930s-40s [x]
^ One of many great things to direct someone to anytime they start going off about how “real beauty” was appreciated back in the good ol’ glamorous retro days.
More info on that weird head vice created by Max Factor: It was called the “beauty micrometer,” originally created for the application of makeup on film actors, and didn’t really correct the application of makeup so much as pinpoint the exact places where makeup needed to be applied to ensure the actor’s face measured up to symmetrical, perfectly-proportioned beauty standards as much as possible.
it should be noted that a good many of these things werent popular or widely used though (with i think the exception of the hair waver).
But weird beauty practices go back ages. In the 1600 and 1700s women would have their blood let to remain pale and use belladonna, a poison, to obtain larger pupils. Also many beauty products until the early 1900s had uring and arsenic as major ingredients.
