Today I thought I'd share one of my beauty inspirations.

As a noob to the beauty industry I've only just been learning new techniques and new styles. I have always loved looking but never doing.

One of my biggest inspirations are Audrey Hepburn.

Now I know she had a team of people doing her makeup, but to be honest, her style is very easy to recreate.

“My look is attainable. Women can look like Audrey Hepburn by flipping out their hair, buying the large sunglasses, and the little sleeveless dresses.” - Audrey Hepburn

From what I can see, the stereotypical Audrey look is the black liquid eye linered lid.

The lightly red lips.

The boofed up and back hair.

The big sunnies.

And... The little Black Dress

I'm working on getting the eyes and hair right, and I'm working on the figure as well. Even still, her elegance, her attitude, her life, it's something that we can all admire. It wasn't just outer beauty that she had.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;
For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;
and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
