Just having awoken in the morning, actress Constance Bennett demonstrates to the viewer her morning facial skin care ritual. She starts with a cleansing cream - one specific to her skin type - to start off with a "clean" slate. The next step is a stimulating cream, which should only be left on for a few minutes to start the stimulation process. This is followed by application of a complexion mask for deep circulation. The mask needs to be left on for the duration of a bath - Constance's morning ritual - or whatever one's own morning ritual is that lasts that long. The next step is application of a glow base so that the make-up can stay on. Cream rouge and powder are the next steps, the powder optional if one wants a more matte finish. The final touch is lipstick. Using a lipstick that stays on one's lips rather than what those lips touch is important. Written by
As Constance Bennett says "Remember - to be beautiful and natural is the birthright of every woman". Hmmm - well, her beauty routine may have left her beautiful but it didn't exactly leave her "natural" looking to me.
In this short film, actress Constance Bennett (as herself) climbs out of bed in glamorous nightgown, face already caked with full make-up job including loads of red lipstick, mascara, eye shadow, and rouge. She proceeds to demonstrate her morning "beauty ritual" applying layer after layer of creams to her face including what seems to be her favorite - her beloved "glow base", after which she applies her cream rouge (even though she already has some on), her lipstick (even though she already has some on), and is free to choose whether she wants to add on a layer of powder (sometimes she chooses to go without and have that healthy, natural glow given by her "glow base"). Okey-dokey. All the while her maid is pressing her that it's almost 8 O'clock (time to leave for the studio, eh?).
This short is filmed in color, and is actually kind of interesting/amusing for some reason. She says you need to start out with a "clean face", so it looks a little weird when she is washing up and applying her face scrubs, etc. with all that lipstick on. But hey, Constance recommends a great cold cream - it grows no fuzz! Fun to watch.
