Panels or walls 9 and I extend forwardly from opposite side edges of the panel 8 and are disposed diagonally so that they diverge forwardly, the forward edges of the panels I and NJ being secured to or formed integral with opposite 'side edges of a panel or wall II. A lens l2 having a frame I3, is set into an opening I4 formed in the panel or partition 1 and opposite this'lens the panel or wall 9 carries a mirror IS, the angle of the wall 9 being such that when an individual is Claims.
This invention relates to a make-updemonstration apparatus for use by cosmeticians and studios, and it is an object of the invention to provide an apparatus of this character by the use of which any individual may see the effect 5 which will be produced when her face and hair are made up in a certain manner. It will thus be seen that the individual may see and approve the effect which will be produced before purchasing cosmetics for her face or hair treatment in a manner suggested by herself or the operator.

Fig. 6 is a view of a card showing a face treated treated with one type of rouge.
Fig. '7 is a card showing one type of eye-make- Fig. 8 is a card showing one style of hair dress. My improved apparatus is for use of cosmetiseated at the customers station 6, the individuals head will be reflected from the mirror through the lens l2 onto a second mirror l6 which is mounted against the wall It! and directs the refiection of the individuals head onto the rear surface of a sheet of ground or frosted glass [1. This sheet of glass is mounted against the rear surface of the panel or wall H in covering relation to an opening I8 formed therein, and the reflection If! on the glass will be in full View of the individual and the operator standing nearby. While only the head has been shown in the mirrow l5 and on the glass sheet or screen, inFig. 3 of the drawings, it will be understood that other portions of the body may also be included, a reflection of the head alone being accomplished by placing a shield of black cloth or the like across the individual below the neck, so that this shield blends into the background panel 2 and only the head and neck appear on the screen H. The individual is illuminated through the medium of an overhead light 20 which may be carried by a bracket 2! secured against the wall or panel ll it being understood that the light may be mounted in other positions where a good flood-light effect may be directed upon the individual.
The projecting lanterns 22 are of conventional construction and are of the type intended to have postcards and the like placed therein reflected against a screen or wall. These projectors or lanterns are shown mounted on a platform 23 carried by a pedestal 24, but it is to be understood that other mountings may be had for the projectors. The projectors are placed above and as close to the individuals head as possible to avoid any angle distortion by the reflecting functions of the demonstrating cards.
After the individual is seated and the reflection appears on the screen ll, the operator places cards in the projectors and pictorial matter on these cards will be thrown upon the screen. Four of the cards, indicated by the numerals 25, 26, 21 and 28, are illustrated in Figs. 5, 6, 7 and 8 of the drawings, it being understood that each represents one of a series or set of such cards.
The cards 25 are used for demonstrating the effects produced when lip sticks of various colors and hues are employed, and each has printed thereon lips 29 of one of a number of different colors and hues.
The cards 26 are for demonstrating rouge and other face tinting lotions of various colors and shades, the face portion of the head being indicated by the numeral 30 in Fig. 6, and the rest of the head by dotted lines.
The cards 21 are for demonstrating eye makeup and the cards of this set have the eyes 31 made up in various manners and shades.
The cards 28 are for demonstrating various coiffures and also for showing their adaptability to the individual. The hair is designated by the numeral 32 and other portions of the head are indicated by dotted lines.
After the cards are placed in the projectors, the projectors are adjusted so that the colored portions 29, 3!], 3|, and 32 are properly located with respect to the reflection of the individuals head on the screen l1, and the result may then be inspected by the individual as well as by the operator. If it is found that the colors do not blend properly for a good effect, or the type of hair dress is not suitable for the individual, the proper cards are removed from the projectors and others substituted until a satisfactory ccmbination is obtained.
