Claire Avery addresses the issue of faux beauty mark placement in this illustration, which appeared in the April 15, 1923, Vogue. A woman looks in the mirror, presumably contemplating this matter of much artistic concern. Her hairstyle is extremely chic for the time, with flat, curled bangs, clusters over the ears, and a high chignon in back. The subject matter may be unusual to a modern audience, but this work captures a historical beauty regime that was highly regarded at the time.
