ST. JOHNS REVIEW
St. Johns ideal Place

ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1921.
Camouflage and Pretty Faces
unmouflaKC was supposed to
be an invention of the late war,
but camouflage women always
existed ever since the- days of
Adam, when Eve very probably
tooK the shine oil her nose by din
ping it into elderberry blooms,
or squeezed n few rose petals on
her cheeks when sho was feeling
n bit olF color. And there's no
doubt 81M kept her lord and
master waning moro man was
good for his temper while she
got up with the lark to bathe her
face in the early dews, when Bhe
Bhnuld have been getting Adam's
breakfast, but this sort of cam
oullage was very different from
tnac existing today. Jn mo year
ot nineteen twenty.one all beau
ty seems to come out of the
earth. And whut is infinitely
worse, it is put on in public.
Eve, I'm sure, would have
blushed for shame if any one
had cuught her in the act of
camouflaging down at the river
brink. Now nobody blushes un
less it is with the rabbit's foot.
It is quite impossible to go about
without coming across some
girl or other redecorating her
self in full view of the public.
Not a modern lass seems to have
the slightest objection to taking
every one into her conflilenco
about the real quality of her
punch-like bloom, her languish
ing eyelashes, the composition
of her Cupid ips and the shine
on her eyebrows. It's moat ir
ritating business to tho onlook
er. You can't tako tea in u bun
shop or got into a street car
without sitting opposite some
femalo who at any moment will
dust her face with a powder puff
the size of the family sponge.
Girls blacken their eyelashes
whonover they fool tho need for
it, and all this so-called beauti
fying process is conducted with
tin aplomb and self nbsortion
that is positively amazing. I've
often wondered what tho men
really think about it, all tho nico
men. I watched a nice man tho
other day. Ho came into tho
smart little tea shop in tho wake
of his companion, who was an
exceedingly good looking girl,
though already a bit camouflag
ed. They had tea; ho paid tho
. bill; another couplo hovorcd ex
pectantly for their table, but
they had to wait. Tho girl
wasn't quito ready. Out of her
bag sho produced one ot those
little powdor boxes with glasses
and puffs complete. This sho
held nose high while Bho dabbed
her face and neck. Tho man
with her got a bit red; then out
camo the silver lip salvo reoep
tacle. A pair of quito nico lips
immediately became redder than
the cherry. Tho man well, he,
loo, got rodder than tho chorry.
After that she ran a wot finger
over her eyelashes and oyobrows.
Then sho put on her gloves and
looked exceedingly pleased with
herself. Now this was all within
eyesight of at least two waiters,
tho managor of tho place, tho
waiting couple and sovoral
amused tea drinkers nearby. No
wonder tho poor man, redder
than a beet root at tho finish,
bundled her out as auioklv as ho
could. Judging from tho loo
in his eyo I could imagine that
was the last chance sho over cot
or making a public exhibition
of herself and htm. And tho
funny part about it was sho ob
viously thought she was being
very smart and up to dato. It
was evident sho thought sho was
very beautiful, but sho looked
perfect sight by tho time she
had finished messing about wit
all that absurd makeup. And
so ao tho girls who camouflage
whether they do it in public or
n tho privacy of tho dressing
room. Mo sensib o person ob
jects to n judiciously wielded
powder pulf, but when it Ib ac
companicd by lin salvo rouirh
sticks nnd eyebrow pencils, the
result is not only objectionable,
but highly vulgar. If girls only
remembered that camouflage of
this description adds years to
their age, and in a good many
cases makes them look exceed
ngly common and cheap, they'
give it up. No amount of mako
up over made any girl pretty
when nnturo had forgotten to
endow her with good looks.
And what overy woman ought
to realizo is that it decoives no
one. Certainly not tho man; and
men pimply hnto it. So would
you if you had to kiss a glr
whoso faco powder got all over
your coat front and whoso lip
tasted or scented candlo grcaso.
You can't beat honest old soap
and not water liberally applied
twico daily. They beat all tho
cosmatics over invented, and al
lied with sound health should
givo ovory girl tho sort of cheek
a man iovta to taucb and kiss.
