Catherine Zeta JonesHollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is inspired by 1940s styling and the way women managed to look good on a limited budget."In the 1940s, it was a wartime, and women had to make best of what they had, whether it be using super-red lipstick or throwing an eyeliner pencil up the back up the leg for the nylon. They had limited resources, and they made the best of themselves," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her.

The brunette star, who has been the face of cosmetic brand Elizabeth Arden for eight years, however, admits she doesn’t need to economise with her beauty regime, much to the unhappiness of her husband Michael Douglas.“I’m still a fiend for Arden. I can’t get enough. Every time my husband sees anyone from Arden, he’s like, ‘How much more do we have to put in the bathroom?’ I’m like, ‘Excuse me, it’s my job. I need to test everything’,” she said.

Zeta-Jones has also teamed up with Arden to create a limited-edition charity lipstick in aid of Look Good... Feel Better, an organisation, which boosts self-esteem of people undergoing cancer treatment.
