How Beauty Procedures Looked In The 1930s-40s [x]

^ One of many great things to direct someone to anytime they start going off about how “real beauty” was appreciated back in the good ol’ glamorous retro days.

More info on that weird head vice created by Max Factor: It was called the “beauty micrometer,” originally created for the application of makeup on film actors, and didn’t really correct the application of makeup so much as pinpoint the exact places where makeup needed to be applied to ensure the actor’s face measured up to symmetrical, perfectly-proportioned beauty standards as much as possible.

Pictured above is the world’s largest indoor farm illuminated by LEDs, which opened this month in Japan. Inside, 18 cultivation racks reach 15 levels high, and are outfitted with 17,500 GE LED light fixtures developed specifically for this facility. The indoor farm can grow lettuce two-and-a-half times faster than an outdoor farm, and is already producing 10,000 heads of it per day.
