If you’ve never seen yourself like this, see yourself now… in a cellophane sheen, warmer, milkier, and pearlier than plain gloss. For the softest effect of all, here, a judicious use of rosy mauves and mother of pearl behind a shadow of pale veiling. The make-up is Gala’s: Barely There foundation in Honey, dusted with Translucent Light Powder. Pink Dazzle Lipstick used to make rosy shadows above and around the eyes, the gloss dusted away with Marshmallow Eye Shadow, and on the eyes, above and below, Shiny Apricot Liqui Tint pearled with Barely Frosted Highlighter. Liqui Lash Brownish/Black Mascara, and Burning Shimmer Super-smooth Lipstick. Imagine Gala’s Affair Perfume Oil Concentrate in the air. The head is wrapped in amethyst with pink veiling and pinned with pearly mauve flowers made in Italy by Ugo Correani.
Revlon’s make-up. Creamy Ivory Touch & Glow Liquid Make-up, and Frosty Sienna Blush-On so that it shows. Touch & Glow Translucent Powder dusted on and dusted of again. Eyes outlined with Midnight Blue Liquid Eyeliner. Black Super Rich Mascara for lashes. Lemon Frost merged into Meadow Green Super Rich Eye Shadows. Charcoal Grey Fineline Pencil for brows. Copper Coral Lipstick, brush-outlined for cut-out clear edges.

Leslie Caron looking fantastic in a dress of aquamarine chiffon by Pablo & Delia, to order at Browns. For her hair, here by John at Leonard, she eats thirty yeast tablets a day; as skinfood, she uses the contents of Vitamin E capsules. She wears Robert Piguet Fracas, mostly Estee Lauder and Lancome make-up. And she’s just finished filming Leon Uris’s “QB VII”.
Naturally mouse hair is usually limp so it needs extra life, extra lift, extra bounce. All this can be achieved by very, very fine highlighting. Keep away from obvious streaks, let your hair look instead as if it’s just come out of the sun. An expert will know exactly which colours to choose for you, exactly the right depth and contrast of highlighting. You can have water-rinse streaks or permanent; you can have your own hair coloured, or your hairpiece. The subtly streaked hair, left, is controlled at the top, combed into waves, then frizzed into a soft cloud at the shoulders. The make-up has the same romantic, pre-Raphaelite look with Orlane’s Satilane beige no. 4 with brush-on rouge no. 3. Eyes: cream pearl shadow in Bleu Perle, Bleu Marine roll-on mascara. Lipstick: beige-pink Paprika. Necklace: an eagle from the Purple Shop, Chelsea Antique Market. Hair colour, here, and in the picture, above, by Daniel, styling by Leonard, both from the House of Leonard.
