How to: Audrey Hepburn Makeup Look



When creating this Audrey Hepburn inspired makeup look I went for super bold brows, doe-eyed makeup, and red lips.

Main parts of her look:

  • Brows: I couldn’t get my brows exactly the same shape as hers since mine are so highly arched.  Her brows were super thick but very straight, with almost no arch.
  • Eye makeup: I tried to keep my eyes very wide-eyed by skipping out on black liner along my waterline.  The key to making my eyes appear larger like hers was using a nude pencil on my waterline.  Also, the winged liner and lashes helped to achieve her flirty looking eyes.
  • Lips: In many of the pictures I came across of Audrey, she had full-looking red lips.  I could tell hers were slightly overdrawn but I decided I would line my lips normally.

Below is the complete Audrey Hepburn inspired makeup tutorial.

Steps to achieve this look:

  1. I first applied a layer of BB cream all over my face.  I used one from Tarte.
  2. Next, I sketched out the eye sockets with Anastasia Beverly Hills Crème Color in Jet and started to shade them in.
  3. After that, I applied Maybelline Color Tatttoo in Fuchsia Fever all over my eye area and blended it into the black.
  4. Next, I applied Iris over the color tattoo and blended Noir from the Tamanna Palette around the outer part of the eye sockets.
  5. Then, I lined my upper lash line with the Crème Color in Jet and lined my lower lash line with Noir.  I also blended Noir into the crease of my eye.
  6. I then applied my lashes and applied Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara to my lower lashes.
  7. Next, I sketched out my nasal cavity with the Crème Color in Jet and filled it in.
  8. After that, I applied NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk to my face using a buffing brush and a small precise eye shadow brush for smaller areas like around my nose and between my eyebrows.
  9. Then I drew flower petals around my right eye and applied glitter to the center of each petal.
  10. After, I drew lines along my cheeks extending from the corners of my mouth to my ears blending Noir underneath the line and then adding a touch of Iris as well.
  11. Next, I shaded the center of my lips with the Crème Color in Jet and applied Twilight lipstick to the remaining part of my lips
  12. Then, I drew stitches with the Crème Color in Jet.
  13. Finally, I set the white parts of my face with a white highlighting powder–you can use translucent if that’s all you have.


Tutorial: Creating an Ombre Lip

Ombre lips are very trendy especially for Fall.  I often get questions about how to achieve this look and it’s honestly not that complicated.  Below I’ve inserted a pictorial and listed the steps.

  1. First, you should exfoliate your lips to remove any dead skin.  You can either use a lip scrub or a soft-bristled tooth brush.  This will also make your lips appear more plump because, as stated in an online article, you will increase the blood circulation to your lips.
  2. Next, you’re going to want to outline your bottom lip with your lipstick.  You may even want to use a lip liner if you’re using a dark colored lipstick just because that can help prevent the lipstick from feathering and bleeding outside your lip line.
  3. After that, go ahead and outline your upper lip with your lipstick.
  4. Next, use either a lip brush or your finger to blend the lipstick into the center of your lips.
  5. Finally, apply a lighter colored lipstick to the center of your lips to create contrast.

This dark, vampy lip combo is absolutely perfect for Fall and Winter.  Pair these lips with a simple neutral cat eye and you’ll be good to go.

This ombre technique is useful in making your lips appear fuller.

Remember, there are no rules when it comes to makeup so get creative with your ombre lips! You can apply a lighter color around the outside of your lips and a darker shade in the center.  You can even start with either a lighter shade or darker shade on one corner of your mouth and have it fade to dark or light.

Here are a few other ombre lip looks I’ve done in the past:

How to: Smokey Look Using the New Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia Palette and Tamanna Palette

Recently I’ve received Anastasia Beverly Hills’ new beauty blogger palettes–the Maya Mia Palette and Tamanna Palette–and have been playing around with a bunch of different looks ranging from simple everyday looks to full on dramatic ones.  I’m really impressed with the quality of the shadows in each palette.  They’re super pigmented and easy to blend.

Here is a look I created using both of the palettes.  It’s perfect for going out at night.  It’s an almost all matte look with some shimmer in the inner corners of the eyes.



I used the @anastasiabeverlyhills Maya Mia and Tamanna Palettes, ABH Waterproof Crème Color in Jet, # 415 Black lashes by @elegantlashes, @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow in Dark Brown, and @hairandmakeupaddiction brushes.

2.) Apply Fresh all over your lid with a flat shader brush.
3.) Blend Caramel into your crease using a fluffy blending brush.
4.) Deepen your crease with Deep Brown using a crease brush.
5.) Line your upper lash line with the Waterproof Crème Color in Jet and smudge Noir over top.
6.) Line your lower lash line with Noir and blend out with Caramel.
7.) Line your waterline with Tarte Cosmetics Skinny SmolderEYES in Onyx.
