Get Lauren Bacall's classic look with Ruby's top tips...

‘When recreating the 40s look is really important to remember the supplies were not as plentiful . In war time luxury luxury really meant so this is going to be a lightweight version of the 2015 classic glam look. ‘

It”s all about eyebrows

‘In the’ 40s most of the emphasis was on a good front. Keep your little fuller but very nice. With a pencil is great for this, I like Bobbi Brown Automatic Brow Pencil, £ 29.50 , which comes with a very handy brush at the end ‘.

Less defects please

‘Women held skin looking good with a compact. A modern version would Pressed Setting Powder Laura Mercier, £ 25 . ‘Slightly powder over foundation for a flawless matte finish. Go to the ladies powder your nose is actually a thing now.

Feeling Flushed

‘in 1940 was a little blush’ of a blush on the cheeks. Most of the time women rubbed a bit ‘of their lipstick on their cheeks, but unless you were lucky enough to get their hands on this, a pinch on the apples of the cheeks should have done. For 2015, I like Bourjois’ Little Round Pot Cream Blush £ 7.99 , in a shade of coral. And ‘long-term and has a powder finish, perfect for’ 40s look. ‘

Lip Service

“Lips were the focus of the ’40s. Everything from true red and blue to red corals strong and pink. Lips nude were not an option! For a retro look real long-term use as a pigment-rich lipsticks Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in bold red, £ 21 (and until May 10 £ 5 for every lipstick sold will be donated to The Royal British Legion). ‘

Bat For Lashes

‘ Mascara would be a black Max Factor mascara type cake that women would apply with a brush. We are fortunate to have so much choice now in every brand and price point, but then it was a different story. Mascara really given the length and the volume came from false eyelashes if women have been lucky enough to get hold of them. ‘

Draw The Line

‘ As well as defining the eyes, eye pencils also come help to draw the lines on the back legs to simulate the socks that were rare with everything being rationed ‘.
