Questions about 1930s NY

I'm working on an original story and need some info ...

Did the average working woman (not a sex worker, or actress, or singer) wear any kind of make-up? The character is a widow who works as a low status journalist. I know that make-up had social meaning related to sexual availibility and so forth, would a 'good girl' wear any?

Any names of NY newspapers of the 1930s?
