Face Of The Day - Breakfast At Tiffany's, My Interpretation

Some of you may know I recently attended a Breakfast At Tiffany's themed Hen Do.

Dress code was a black dress and pearls. Now I am the first to admit I don't have Audrey Hepburn's figure or facial looks in any way,shape or form but I was willing to embrace her 'look' and after watching Lisa Eldridge's video tutorial I set to work on my own interpretation of Holly Golightly's make-up....

The key things I learnt and followed from Lisa's video -

Use a flesh coloured pencil in the waterline to give more of a wide-eyed look - I used Une Skin Glow Pencil Q01 . Honestly this is one of the best tips I have ever learnt and I now do this quite often, it instantly wakes the eyes up. I used to use a white pencil in the inner corners of my eyes but I love this far more, it looks really natural.

I used a black liquid pen liner to create the girly flick which seems to disappear when I put my eyes in normal position!

Lisa said not to use any bronzer or gloss, the look was to be fresh and flawless so I just used a foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear) and blush (Nars Deep Throat) and used the centre of Mac Semi Precious Rose Quartz MSF to highlight.

The lips

I lined my lips with a nude coloured pencil and then mixed two lipsticks - MeMeMe Ava a dusty rose shade (review coming soon) and Lancome's Rouge Mars peachy/pink tone to get a really nice, pretty shade.

What do you think ?


  1. You look gorgeous I love the lipstick x

  2. I really like this on you - I think that it makes your eyes stand out. I do sympathise about the eyeliner flick think, my eyelids are like tent awnings and any flick just disappears into the folds, but when I bother it does give a done look to my face. Thanks for this. Jan x

  3. The blusher looks great on you- made me want to buy it!

  4. I love using a lighter pencil in my waterline too! Which one do you like? <3 Your eye color is really pretty by the way :)
