Because I can’t get over my fascination with Brigitte Bardot.
I saw the picture of French actress Brigitte Bardot (above left) in a magazine article about timeless beauty looks when I was 9. I had an instant fascination with her and her cat eyes and her nude lips. Seriously, I tore the picture out and hung it up on my wall and still have it laying around somewhere. I realize the makeup doesn’t really make me look anything like her, but heck, it’s still a good look.
How-to: Apply a fleshy toned eye shadow to your lid to help hold the liner. Then smudge some brown pencil eyeliner on your lower lash line and create a wing with liquid liner on the upper lash line (tutorial for evenly winged eyeliner here). For cat eyes, you want your line to be thicker and not too long. Finish eyes with a healthy dose of mascara. For lips, apply a nude lipstick. Optional: top with peach gloss.
