Wartime beauty aids (WWII)

I'm trying to get some examples of ways in which women manage to primp and keep themselves pretty during wartime. Specifically, the Second World War. Things I've already heard about:

- stain your legs with tea, then draw a line up the back of your leg, to mimic wearing stockings
- use burnt matches to darken your eyebrows

I'm looking for a range of such things, so it doesn't have to be from a particular country - the Home Front or the occupied countries or even Nazi Germany itself are all fine.

Many thanks.
