Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.
This week for VIP Beauty Tues, I have been inspired by Katharine the Great–aka Katharine Hepburn.
Katharine Hepburn is best known for her menswear style in the fashion world; however, there is not a lot of chit-chat about her makeup. The VIP decided that needed to change *wink* Katharine’s minimal makeup look is one that I see becoming an everyday favorite of mine because it is simple, quick, and the products are pretty basic. *yay* There is nothing I love more than makeup that is short, sweet, and to the point.
Get the details below + a few makeup tips and share your “Inspired by Katharine Hepburn” makeup look with me on Facebook here or by mentioning @AbbyHathorn on Twitter and IG.
One thing I have noticed from stalking Katharine Hepburn’s style is that she focused a lot on contouring–especially at the cheeks. So, I used Lancome’s Blush Subtil Palette in 359 Framboise Flirt to help achieve that Katharine-Hepburn-inspired look.
Basic Contouring Tip: DO NOT USE THE SAME BRUSH FOR EACH COLOR–major no no. Invest in good contouring brushes–Sephora actually has a special brush set here.
Keep the eyes simple.
I used Make Up For Ever’s Pinky Beige (Iridescent) shadow all over and added a bit of emphasis to the outer crease of the lid with Too Faced’s Innocent. For liner, I took Laura Mercier’s Stormy Grey Kohl Eye Pencil and created a subtle line right at the edge of my lashes. Basic Tip: If you have light eyes like me, this helps to “open up the eyes” giving a fresh-face look. Also, I finished off the eyes with Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara.
Last but not least–LIPS!
Y’all know how crazy I am about lip color *wink* So, I added a small punch of coral to this makeup look using Fleur De Feu from Guerlain.
TAH DAH! A VIP makeup look inspired by one of my favorite actresses and style icons, Katharine Hepburn! Be sure to come back tomorrow to see my twist on Katharine the Great’s fabulous menswear ensembles *wink*
