Well, don't do it. There may be a few who can have a rouge
especially prepared that is the exact tint that harmonizes with the skin,
the hair, the eyes, and can apply it so carefully as to look "natural."
But ordinarily the deception is evident, and rouge in conjunction with
liquid washes and penciled eyes and brows, suggest the aids employed by
women of the demi-monde.
If any rouge is used, let it be the "Spanish lady's rouge" or
crepons--bits of white woolen crepe dyed with an ammoniacal solution of
carmine. These are gently rubbed on the skin to produce the required glow.
