Date September 5, 2019 15:00

Jackie Kennedy Onassis is often cited as one of the most elegant first ladies of all time. And it's no mystery why: Her style and ethos were a study in how to toe the line between classic and remarkable. We looked back at her legacy and the enduring beauty lessons that can be gleaned from it.

Here are some beauty lessons by the former first lady:

  • Lipstick can be an accessory.

Despite preferring the more minimalist makeup look, Jackie always matched her lipstick to her outfit.

  • Maintain your hair as you sleep with a silk pillowcase

Kennedy often slept on a silk pillowcase or with her hair in an elegant silk scarf to help maintain her blowouts.

  • Try dead sea mud soap

The woman particularly loved Erno Lazlo's Dead Sea Mud Soap. Rich in minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium. These are all very good for your skin.

  • Use a single, signature perfume so everyone can recognize you by smell.

Jackie's pick? Lovely Patchouli 55 by House of Krigler.

  • Take good care of your eyebrows.

Long before the Brooke Shields and the Cara Delevingnes of the wold, Jackie Kennedy knew how to pull off statement eyebrows. Her secret? Simple: she drew and filled them in with an eyebrow pencil.

  • Master the lazy-day look.

Even Jackie's perfectly polished looks had a touch of comfort and 'lightness.' She achieved this through tricks like a scarf around her head on those bad hair days, or big sunglasses to disguise the days when she had a little less rest.

And the last but not the least...

  • Invest in face creams!

Despite her bad smoking habit, Jackie aged gracefully trusting her skin in Erno Laszlo's Phormula 3-9 Repair cream. Likewise, the woman used facial oils. The oil + cream combo was the recipe for the First Lady's ever-moisturized skin.

Use these simple rules every day to look like a goddess, because no one turned heads quite like the former first lady!
