ugly or beautiful, or if the person meeting her be beautiful and the 

lady observed be ugly, then it is probable, that the approaching person 

may pass by inattentively, casting merely an indifferent glance; if, on 

the contrary, the woman meeting her be ugly, and the lady observed be 

beautiful, then the former will examine the latter with the severest 

scrutiny, and if she sees features and shape without defect, she will 

instantly fix her eyes on the head-dress or gown, in order to find some 

object for censure of the beautiful woman, and for consolation in her 

own ugliness. 

 

Thus he who happens to follow a female may be aided in determining 

whether it is worth his while to glance at her face in passing, or to 

devise other means of seeing it. 

 

Even when the face is seen, as in meeting in the streets or elsewhere, 

infinite deception occurs as to the degree of beauty. This operates so 

powerfully, that a correct estimate of beauty is perhaps never formed at 

first. This depends on the forms and still more on the colors of dress 

in relation to the face. For this reason, it is necessary to understand 

the principles according to which colors are employed at least by 

skilful women. 

 

When it is the fault of a face to contain too much yellow, then yellow 

around the face is used to remove it by contrast, and to cause the red 

and blue to predominate. 

 

When it is the fault of a face to contain too much red, then red around 

the face is used to remove by contrast, and to cause the yellow and blue 

to predominate. 

 

When it is the fault of a face to contain too much blue, then blue 

around the face is used to remove it by contrast, and to cause the 

yellow and red to predominate. 

 

When it is the fault of a face to contain too much yellow and red, then 

orange is used. 

 

When it is the fault of a face to contain too much red and blue, then 

purple is used. 

 

When it is the fault of a face to contain too much blue and yellow, then 

green is used. 

 

It is necessary to observe that the linings of bonnets reflect their 

color on the face, and transparent bonnets transmit that color, and 

equally tinge it. In both these cases, the color employed is no longer 

that which is placed around the face, and which acts on it by contrast, 

but the opposite. As green around the face heightens a faint red in the 

cheeks by contrast, so the pink lining of the bonnet aids it by 

reflection. 

 

Hence linings which reflect, are generally of the teint which is wanted 

in the face; and care is then taken that these linings do not come into
