• Short Summary

    A work-weary woman is made over at a beauty salon.

  • Description

    Titles read: "HOW TO MAKE UP".

    London.

    A work-weary woman arrives in a beauty salon treatment room. The beautician helps her to take off her blouse and the woman lies down on a coach, wearing her slip, bra and skirt.

    The woman has a cloth put over her hair. C/U of a trolley full of cosmetics. The beautician puts cold cream all over her face and massages her skin with a 'roll-patting movement'. The cream is wiped off, then cream foundation is applied, followed by mascara and eyebrow colour. Finally, lipstick is applied with a brush.

    The finished effect is seen on the fully-dressed woman, who adjusts her hair, smiles her thanks and leaves the salon.

    Note: this is a great story, but slightly spoilt by the quality of the print. May need adjusting in telecine suite.
