With Halloween right around the corner, you might be contemplating an Audrey Hepburn themed costume. It’s easy enough to dress like Audrey from, say, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but maybe you’re a bit lost when it comes to getting that classic Audrey makeup look. Fear not! I’ve done the research to let you get it just right.
Audrey’s makeup, by and large, was predominantly classic 1950s and 1960s style. Her looks featured a bold lip with what would be come the classic cat eye. Her foundation wasn’t ever overdone, like we’re used to seeing today. Rather the skin was left more natural.
Lisa Eldridge’s Audrey Hepburn Makeup Tutorials
When it comes to learning about makeup in general, there is no better online teacher than Lisa Eldridge, who is a celebrity makeup artist and master YouTuber. Her looks are impeccable. And, lucky us! She’s done not one but TWO Audrey Hepburn themed tutorials. There are tons more on YouTube, but Lisa is the only person I trust to get it right. She’s not only a makeup artist, but also somewhat of a makeup historian, so this is as close and you’re going to get to the actual look without the brouhaha of modern makeup. I highly recommend both of these tutorials not just for Halloween, but for every day life!
