1960s get the look - Audrey Hepburn bridal beauty

1960s get the look - Audrey Hepburn bridal beauty: Image 1 Welcome to part two of our beauty time machine trip. This week, we've brought you to the 1960s to show you how to perfect Audrey Hepburn's iconic style for your big day.

1960s get the look - Audrey Hepburn bridal beauty...

There is no denying that Audrey Hepburn has left a beautifully-shaped mark in many a heart... Maybe it’s the kooky elegance portrayed in movies such as Funny Face; her sweet demeanour shown in Roman Holiday; contrasted with the feisty flower girl role in My Fair Lady or that inner strength and spirit in Breakfast at Tiffany’s... Or the real-life humanitarian that worked with children’s charities for many years? We all connect with Audrey Hepburn in one way or another, and perhaps this is one of the reasons so modern many brides-to-be opt for this pristine and elegant look for their wedding day.

Kent bridal make-up artist, Kelli Waldock, shares how you can achieve this classically elegant and pristine bridal look for your wedding:

MAKE-UP

  • Stay hydrated on the lead up to your big day, and use a light moisturiser on your face and neck.
  • Add a good quality primer all over your face as a base for the foundation.
  • An overall matte finish is required for this look, with full coverage – build up Airbase airbrushing foundation or a mineral foundation for a full coverage.
  • Apply your favourite primer to your eyelids as a base for the cream-gold or cream-silver – apply this over eye from the inside corner, and blend a light brown into the crease of the lid to create drama to this classic and sultry look.
  • Subtle liner is applied halfway along the under eye, but not on the inside, this keeps the eye wider.
  • Add a thick line of black kohl to the top lid, take it out to the edge of the eye and do not add a flick or a smudge.
  • Apply waterproof mascara to the top lashes and a light layer to the lower lashes, then apply false lashes that are defined and separate, as opposed to thick or feathered.
  • Eyebrows are defined in-keeping with this retro look.
  • Matte nude lips are a must and if the lips are dry ensure you add lip balm before applying nude lip-liner and lipstick... Mac is a favourite in this shade.
  • Lift the whole look with a delicate matte blusher blended across and up the cheekbone.
  • Brides can match nail colour with lip colour, and for a modern twist you can add delicate gems to the fingernail of the ring finger.

HAIR

A beehive style is iconic to this era, but this doesn’t have to be very high. Leave a front section of hair out, and set the back section from the crown in curlers. You can create a beehive or chignon, before clipping the front sections to the side, framing the face. Use shine spray and hairspray during styling to fix the look and to ensure a sleek finish. This elegant style elongates the neck and works with 1960s style high or square necklines.
