Audrey Hepburn inspired photo shoot...

Audrey Hepburn is probably one of the most famous cinema icons out there. She's been in such movies as Breakfast at Tiffanys and My Fair Lady, to name a few. Growing up, I went through a phase where I was obsessed with music and film from the 50's and 60's. I just wanted to live back in that time where girls wore poodle skirts and hung out at the soda fountain. I think it would have been so much fun living back except for the racism, lol.

Here are a few pics of the screen legend:

My model was also petite, fair skinned and had the same dark hair as Audrey. We were going for a minimal makeup look shot outdoors. Ms. Hepburn was known for barely there makeup--mainly long lashes, pale cheeks and lips, and heavy eyebrows. I went with a lighter look, but modernized it a bit. A good rule of thumb is to only apply as much makeup as a model needs...I know it's fun sometimes to do the whole shebang, but it's best to apply makeup on an individual as needed bases.

I used the following products:
-smashbox photofinish primer
-cinema secrets foundation
-green correcting powder from everyday minerals
-graftobian creme blush (great for creating a natural looking flush)

-rimmel professional brow pencil
-ardell lashes
-max factor 2000 calorie mascara
-MAC paint in bare canvas
-llama e/s
-cork e/s
-Revlon Colorstay liquid liner in blackest black

-covergirl plumping lipstick in pillow pink
-milani bubblegum pink lipgloss

Here's a tip...don't forget the ears! My model had brightly flushed ears. I brushed on a bit of green correcting powder and voila, red is gone!

And of course, a before and after: the look is subtle but definitely makes her more polished.
