Long Hair Keys Her Glamor

    JULIE LONDON'S career is in high gear these days. Her sixth record
album is about to be released and she is co-starring with Gary Cooper in "Man of the West.”

    Husky-voiced Julie has her own individual style in beauty as well as in vocalizing. No matter what the fashion, her blonde hair stays long and loose.

    “I had my hair cut short once. Nobody liked it so I let it grow," she explained with a shrug. “Men mostly like long hair. I heard this when everybody else's but mine was short. Long hair always seems more glamorous and feminine somehow."

You Get Only One Face

    Julie thinks it is a mistake to underestimate the importance of beauty care. “You only get one face, so it pays to take care of it in every way possible. That isn't vanity; it's self-respect. If only for the sake of others, you should take care of your appearance even when you're 90.

    "My mother is a bug on this," Julie continued. "She is in her fifties and she has a lovely skin. Age has nothing to do with taking care of yourself. If your skin is dry, you need to use cream even if you're a 12-year old."

    Julie cares for her skin, which happens to be dry, by the steam and cream method. "I have about 4,000 different jars of cream," she said jokingly. “I think it's good to switch products often. Your skin seems to build up a tolerance, and after a while a product is no longer effective. This is especially true of deodorants."

Uses Care with Eyes

    Her beautiful eyes are one of Julie's major assets. Recognizing this, she makes them up with great care. “I use brown mascara, but a black eyeliner. Instead of pencil, I use black cake make-up applied with a fine tipped brush. I use plain lead pencil on my eyebrows. It seems to be just the right shade. I like eye shadow, especially for evening, and I always' get it in the pencil form. It's so much easier to put on."

    “I see you like a light lipstick," I commented. “The Italian influence?”

    “No, I've always preferred light pink or coral," Julie replied. “Underplaying the mouth, makes the eyes more important."
