Rita Hayworth beauty tips.

Rita Hayworth was a top glamour girl in the 1940s. She was a pin-up girl for military servicemen and a beauty icon for women. At 5'6" she was tall for women of her time and her height was a concern to her movie star dancing partners like Fred Astaire.

Hayworth got her motion picture break because she was willing to change her hair color. She changed her hair color eight times in eight movies.

Hayworth had a unique beauty style. When she became a celebrity she had naturally long nails. "I take care of my nails myself," she said. "I find my cuticle never tears and my nails don't break if I rub cream into them every night." She was once the cover girl of "Nails magazine". In 1940 she started a manicure trend. Hers nails were oval than pointed, and fully covered with hot pink polish. (Previously there was no polish covering the moon of the nail or the tip.)

In 1949 Hayworth's lips were voted best in the world by the Artists League of America. She had a modeling contract with Max Factor to promote its Tru-Color lipsticks and Pan-Stik make-up.
