Britt Ekland - Bombshell next Door

1. For a natural look use a tinted moisturizer instead of a foundation.
2. Apply a beige creamy eyeshadow along the lashline , then apply a light brown with a touch of bronze from the eyelid crease to the browbone.
Now draw a big line with a liner  along your lashline. Don't forget to drag out the line a little bit , which is the key to "cateyes."
Furthermore draw a line with a white khol along the inner lashline of your lower lid.
For a magical look use a lot of mascara.
3. Instead of blush use a bronzer to accentuate your cheekbones.
4. Use  a colourless gloss for the lips.

Mia Farrow in The Great Gatsby

Altough she's rahter a natural type of woman , I think the more sophisticated make-up looks incerdible too.

Teint: Because of her pretty freckels this look rather need a very light powder than a thick foundation.
           Now add some pink blush on the cheekbone.
Eyes: Apply a light brown eyeshadow on the lid and blur it to the outside.
          Now use a khol in a darker brown to draw a line along the lashlines.
          Only use a bit of mascara for the upper lashes.
          Also use an eyebrow pencil , it will give your  face more contour.
Lips: Apply a transparent gloss on yout lips.

The Look of Grace Kelly

Unforgetable Hollywood legend also known as Her Serene Highness the Princess of Monaco.
One of the many people who had to die much to early.

Ho to do :
Important for the look is the pure teint. So you first hide your flaws with a concealer and the cover your face with a good foundation in a way , that your skin still looks natural. Now fix everything with some powder.
The eyes are emphasized only slightly. You only have to use a little bit of a light brown eyeshadow and mascara  for the upper lashline.
At this look the focus is one the lips. First you surround and fill the lips with a tomato red lipliner. Afterwards put some gloss on your lips in exact the same colour as your lipliner is.

Beauty Icon : Jean Shrimpton

Back in the 60's Jean Shrimpton was a hot shot. Known as the "Symbol of Swinging London" , she helped to launch the miniskirt in Australia , while wearing it at the Victoria Derby in Melbourne. In beauty history she'll be rembered for her wide doe-eyes , long wispy eyelashes , arched brows and pouty lips.

How to create her look
Add silver or icy blue eyeshadow on the lower lid and on the movable lid. Use black eyeshadow (e.g. "Barocco Trio Fards à Paupières" by Clarins) to accentuate the crease. Now , draw a very thin line with eyeliner (e.g "Penultimate Eyeliner" by MAC) close to the lashes. Apply a white kohl  on the inner lid. Mascara all lashes several times .

For having Jean's Eyebrows , draw fine lines with an eyebrow pencil  between your own.
Use blush  to accentuate your cheekbones.
For the lips , use a glossy pastel pink lipstick .
