Background: Glamour is on the curriculum these days for over 20,000 girls at Swedish schools. With an eye to the fact that most schoolgirls between 12-15 years-of-age use cosmetics - and usually fairly badly - Stockholm teachers were seen guiding them to beauty with hints on the correct use of lipstick, eye-black and other make-up.
The fair-complexioned Scandinavian girls often need a minimum of help from powder and paint, and they are shown how a little in the right direction will accentuate their best points.
Any wrongly-applied make-up is discussed between teacher and pupil and put right. One teacher said; "There is no such thing as pretty or ugly these days - a girl can always make herself pretty."
