Audrey Hepburn was arguably one of the most beautiful women to grace this earth and graceful she was. She was timeless elegance and never so much as when she appeared in the cult classic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. Her eyes were simply stunning, large and bright and always the focal point of her makeup. If Cary Grant knew how to wear a suit well, it was Audrey Hepburn who new how to wear false lashes well. And she never looked “over-done”. Despite wearing layers of eyeliner and mascara Audrey always looked polish and refined. How did she do it? Her trick was to apply minimal product to the lower lid and lashes, effectively lifting the eye. Her perfectly shaped brows gave the additional lift that made this lady look alert and sophistocated.
Brigitte Bardot was on the other hand a sex kitten. Her look was more sunkissed and windswept. It was Brigitte who made a more translucent skin with a suntan fashionable, for which she paid greatly for in later life. The Brigitte Bardot look is all about sexiness. The eyes are heavily shadowed and a softer less polished eyeliner literally blackens the eye surrounds with exagerrated lashes finishing the look. The end result? Eyes that look sultry and seductive. Avoid this look if you are tired though, its too heavy and will accentuate shadows and lines.
Twiggy was the most courageus style icon of the sixties in my opinion. Her tomboy look was balanced with the ultra-feminine eye makeup which is synonymous with the sixties. Colours were applied richly to the creases of the eye, often wet to appear stronger and never blended and the lower lashes were exaggerated, often with pencil strokes as in the case with this pic. While most of us would feel and possibly look like a ragdoll if we did this, the point is to apply copious amounts of mascara to the lower lashes for an ultra feminine edge.
