This documentary celebrates the courageous stories of Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein, immigrant women who founded competing cosmetics empires in an age when business was dominated by men and makeup was considered vulgar. Though intense rivals, together Arden and Rubinstein literally changed the face of America -- and amassed impressive personal wealth and power along the way. Ann Carol Grossman and Arnie Reisman direct.
