Rainbow eyes are the latest fad in Cinema City today

Hollywood and Grapevine: Rush for the paint pots, gals, and get your rainbow eyes!

It’s the latest fad with movie belles, according to facial expert Aida Grey, who started it and says: “It’s wonderful for women over 30 to replace the coloring and highlights that fade as she grows older.”

War paint, says Aida, belongs around the peepers and nowhere else. The trick is to find just what colors nature has put into the eyes, and then repeat the hues starting from the eyelashes up.
