look-alike makeups: Louise Brooks

Louise Brooks (1906–1985)

Louise Brooks (1906–1985) was an American actress and one of the most famous faces of the silent-movie era. Her distinctive bob haircut, which became eponymous, is still recognised to this day.

As an actress she is probably remembered most for her waif-like role as the doomed Lulu, who met her fate at the hands of Jack the Ripper, in Pandora’s Box.
