The great female Hollywood icons are a huge inspiration to me as a make-up artist. The timeless beauty of actresses such as Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Maureen O’Hara and Marylin Monroe still influence the beauty and fashion industry today. I adore everything about their style from the strong brows, the beautifully defined eye’s and lips, their flawless skin. I would have loved to lived in this era. With the amazing fashion and women weren’t afraid to embrace their curves and play up their best features. They were so glamourous and feminine, love it!
In the September/October Heroes issue of V Magazine, Kate Winslet pays tribute to legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor, shot by well known celebrity photographer Mario Testino. I love Kate, she is a real woman who knows herself and a true hollywood star. She’s so striking, which is probably why she’s the face of Lancome but in these shots, with the darkened brows and defined eyeliner I think she’s even more stunning. Styled by Carine Roitfeld, she looks very like Liz, especially in the first shot which is my favourite, it’s just so beautiful and a fitting tribute to the late actress.
