Looking Back…

Last week I sat drafting a post on style inspiration; from Fifties icons to Modern Day, from hair and make up to fashion and style. There was so much to say I realised it’s something that needs to be split up in several posts!

When I started the beauty section, my research went straight to the 1960s: my favourite decade. As I assembled my Sixties icons I realised there was a similar vein that ran through each of their looks…. and my own!

Excuse the Instagram selfie – but this is the make up I wear everyday. It’s pretty simple (partly because I am very lazy).

Now, when I compare this to the images I chose for the Inspiration post…


L-R:  Brigitte Bardot, Francoise Hardy, Jane Birkin and Audrey Hepburn

They all seem to share large defined dark eyes (including winged eyeliner and big eyelashes), nude/pink lips, pink cheeks and a blunt fringe!

This completely sums up my simplistic approach to make up – clearly my Sixites icons influenced my style more than I realised! As I stared at Francoise Hardy I also realised we have the same hair – no matter how hard I try to be Brigitte, my hair remains stubbornly straight, flat and brunette!

Who are your favourite beauty icons?
