Another really interesting option particularly for women in the UK where makeup was far less available or for women who just couldn't afford the amount of makeup necessary was Gravy Stockings. Yes, you read that right. Gravy stockings. The technique was pretty simple. Boil down bones and left over bits of meat from dinner into a thick dark colored gravy and then paint away!
I love this picture, because the perfect black lines, seem to be drawn on by a perfect shiny gel body liner, but the photographer actually used the natural light around them, because the lines happen to be the shadows of the sun through a set of lines. It s always amazing when you can take a vision and execute it.
