Make Up Routine

This promotional EP for Du Barry Cosmetics calls for a lot of suspension of disbelief. It's hard to take an audio recording of a makeover seriously. But listen to that piano, you can tell they tried their damnedest to convey the sheer glamour and elegance involved in the Du Barry make up routine.

The liner notes offer these helpful hints on what to do with the record once you've committed the routine to memory:

"Why not share the benefits of this album with friends? It's a gift of beauty that will win you many 'thank-you's.'"

"Also recommended for use in schoolrooms."

No child left behind... without eyeliner and crhme blush.
