A Rigorous Nighttime Routine
Titled "Beauty For Young Marrieds: Here Is Your Routine For Good Grooming!", the 1952 article in the herald advised women to apply "complexion milk" aka cold cream at bedtime to wake up with supple, wrinkle-free skin.
In Midge Maisel’s timeline, housewives were always expected to be "fresh-looking" around their husbands. And fresh meant done up and pretty from the moment they wake up to the moment they go to bed (hence the semi-infamous sneaking out of the bed after Joel goes to sleep).
But you don’t have to be a housewife to look flawless. A night cream, or a face mask before bed (or an overnight mask) can give you all the hydration you need as an update on the cold creams.

A “No-Makeup” Makeup Glow
The key is to stick to the bare essentials (primer, foundation, setting powder) but add a twist: some shine.
Whether it’s a facial oil or a highlighter, a bit of sparkle is key for a ‘glow from within’ look.

If heatless curls (which can in some cases be healthier for your hair) aren’t your thing, then a hair curler is your next best go-to.
Just keep in mind that your hair should look perfectly in place, so a hold spray and a high-quality hair straightener will be your next best friends.
