Hello my lovely readers 🙂 How’s everything going?
Today I want to share with you a very special make up tutorial. As you can already tell from my profile picture I really love Audrey Hepburn: her style, her make up, her personality… So today I’m going to make a Breakfast at Tiffany’s inspired make up.
First step: Skin
I applied the Bourjois 123 perfect CC cream in the colour light beige all over my face and I blend it with my beauty blender. This CC cream really helps to hide my redness and imperfections without being too heavy. In the movie you can see she has flawless skin but it looks very natural. As a concealer I used the Lancome Effeacernes Longue Tenue because it has a great coverage and it last a lot.
Second step: Contour
When I do my make up I usually never contour but in this case, since I wanted to look more similar to Audrey, I did it. I used my Deliplus highlighter to highlight some areas like my under eyes, the cupids bow and the centre of my nose. Then I used the lightest brown colour from the Essence Hello Autumn eyebrow set to contour, I like to use this product because it has an ashy brown that’s perfect for contouring. I applied it on the sides of my nose (make sure to make a thin line) under my cheek bones and on my jaw line. In the fist picture it looks pretty scary but once you blend it it looks natural. For blending I used the fluffy brush you can see in the picture below.
Third step: Eyeshadows
Before applying the eyeshadow I put a little bit of concealer on my eyelid, so it work as a primer. For my eyeshadows I used again Essence Hello Autumn eyebrow set in the eye crease, first I used the lighter brow and then on the outer corner I used a bit of the darker colour . I applied the cream colour you can see in the picture all over my eyelid, on my inner corner and on the brow bone.
Third step: Eyeliner and Mascara
Of course I had to make her signature cat eye eyeliner, they way I like to do it, is this: First I draw a very thin line on my top lashes, using the Deliplus eyeliner, I do a flick the side of my eye, pointing towards the end of my eyebrow, and I join it with the previous line. I also used the white Esence kajal pencil on my water line in order to make the eye look bigger.
Finally I applied two coats of mascara on my top lashes and a little bit on my bottom lashes. I used the Essence Get Big lashes mascara, I really like the thick brush of this mascara.
Last step: Blusher and lipstick
On my apple cheeks I used this beautiful light pink blush, in the picture looks like I’ve put a lot but you just need to put a little bit. Then for my lips I used the Essence All about cupcake lipstick which is a beautiful light pink shade.
I hope you liked this look and if you try it at home you can share you results with me through instagram or twitter, I’d love to see them. Anyway you should always remember that there isn’t a better make up look than you own smile, so try to wear it most of the time.
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 – Audrey Hepburn
