One of the many things that Audrey Hepburn continues to inspire among her fans is her classic eye makeup. I’ve long been a proponent of dramatic eye makeup – it’s a simple way to look polished with just stroke of eyeliner and mascara. To get the look, opt for a liquid eyeliner instead of pencil. I like to use Dior’s Style Liner (although it can be difficult to open sometimes!). For the past few years I’ve been using drugstore brand mascaras, specifically, Maybelline and Rimmel; these brands, in my experience, work just as well as more expensive brands.
As the mantra dictates, if you go heavy on the eyes, go light on the lips, and vice versa. Audrey’s lips are a soft baby pink that solidly completes her look without appearing overdone. For a similar look, apply ModelCo’s Party Proof Lipstick in “Kitty” and layer with MAC “Raspberry Swirl” Cremesheen.
Before Cara Delevingne, Audrey Hepburn was the queen of eyebrows. If you’re coveting thicker eyebrows like Audrey, check out my post on how to get thicker, fuller eyebrows.
