I’ve always been jealous of Audrey’s unique beauty; and I get annoyed in ‘Funny Face’ when her face gets called funny! Still, Funny Face is a brilliant film – you should watch it if your into films with musical numbers!
I thought I’d include a little segment in between outfits to show my own version of her look!
My favorite feature of her would have to be the eyebrows – they just shape her face so elegantly. I tried to recreate the shape of her eyebrows as best as I could – but as everyone’s natural eyebrow shape is different no one can be exactly the same!
In this tutorial, I use only two items. Eyebrow kit by Sleek – which includes the wax and powder. Benefit also do a good one; however the Sleek one is almost identical, and it saves a few pennies!
I also finish it off by using brown eyeshadow by Natural Collection. This gives the eyebrows a more natural colour, especially for me as my hair is quite red and need the right shade for my eyebrows to match!
My natural eyebrow shape are quite narrow – however I have quite prominent arches so I could get a good shape by following the natural line!
I began by using the wax to make a line where I will fill later! It felt really weird to make my eyebrows so wide – but I felt more comfortable as I began to fill the whole space with wax.
After carefully putting the wax within the space and on my real eyebrows, I then covered it with the Sleek eyeshadow. I noticed when comparing the two pictures together that my descending line was too vertical – as Audrey’s is more horizontal. I recovered it by making it into a nice flick, something different which I hadn’t tried before.
I tided up the smudges using a cotton wool bud. I then used the eye shadow just to gloss over the eyebrows to merge the two shades to both my skin tone and hair colour. I felt alot better with this look as I added eyeliner, as my eyeliner wing looks nice and vintage below the eyebrow flick! I know Audrey didn’t always wear eyeliner with a flick but this is my kind of trademark! 😀
In future I would probably make sure the lines are more horizontal, which would give off a more Audrey look!
So this is my Audrey Hepburn inspired eyebrow tutorial! Hope you like, Megan :)xx
