Just a bit of Makeup history for our fellow viZionaires...in the 1920's eyeshadow as we know it today had not been perfected at that time (although the Egyptians really had a grasp on the whole makeup thing) anyway, here in the United States women took their makeup and hair que's from the celebrities of the day i.e. Jean Harlow, Greta Garbo etc., etc. Well, those women used petrolium as eyeshadow along with the natural color of the skin on the eyelid. The gloss left from the petroleum left a glorious sheen creating a look of color and glamour.
Also, one man who's sister inspired him to create the first branded mascara was named Maybel and what this "mascara" was concocted of was wax and coal mixed and, was used with a stick across the eyelashes, to create fuller and darker lashes. It became all the rage along with newly invented "eyeliner" and he began to mass market this idea and named the product Maybellene after his beloved muse sister Maybel.
To answer the question: *Glossy Eyelids (learned it from Grandma who was a young woman in the 20's). Instead of petroleum aka. Vaseline, I use Rosebud Salve created in 1908 and still sold in the old fashioned tims they once came in. You can find it at Sephora. This solves the wrinkles around the eyes dilemma. Grandma died at 99 and had very little wrinkles believe it or not! ;-*
Vaseline has many fantastic uses. My favorite is helping me with my shoe game. If you have on heels that maybe a little uncomfortable, like the 4 1/2 inches I like to wear, just slick you foot down with Vaseline and it will help the leather expand and make the shoe a heck of a lot more comfortable.
It is also great to use when you run long distances in your sneakers to stop chaffing.
