Watching old movies is one of my favorite past times I can draw so much inspiration from the classics such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Gentlemen prefer Blondes. Icons such as Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, and of course Marilyn Monroe have all inspired the beauty industry for years. As I watch I get drawn into all the aspects of the film such as the color, style for the time period, and of course the makeup. The 50’s and the 60’s were such an important time for women and beauty.
Thick lashes framed beautiful eyes, pouts were made noticeable with bright lips, and better yet groomed bold eyebrows with winged eyeliner were all the craze. They say beauty is always a changing thing, older trends are becoming new again. I personally love a bright lip and winged liner to this day. Who is your icon for inspiration?
