Audrey Hepburn Inspired Hair and Make-Up

"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."

.... or failing that, a bit of make-up will do the trick.

You know the people you look back on and think - 'they don't make them like that anymore' - and Audrey Hepburn was certainly one of them. I was privileged, if not a little nervous, to recreate her classic look.

Now, Audrey did keep her look relatively classic - but she didn't play around with it a little - so you only have to really worry about two things when it comes to Audrey's look.

1. Make sure the brows are full and thick. I know that in the video below I have probably done them a little too bold for most people's liking.. you honestly don't have to go that bold if you don't want to. :)

2. The liner on the top lash line - keep it fairly thick, particularly on the outer half of your eyelid and flick it out but don't go too far outside your lid.

...the rest can really be up to you.
