Happy birthday, dear Audrey!

2 Comments 05 May 2011

If you didn’t already know, today is Audrey Hepburn’s birthday! If she was still with us she would have been 82 years old today, but you know what? Audrey is still very much with us. Her influence is as strong as ever, she’s as popular as ever, and everyone still wants to be her.

To celebrate the fairest lady’s birthday, WatchMojo put together a video tutorial on how to get Audrey’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s look in makeup:

So if you would like to celebrate Audrey’s birthday but don’t quite know what to do, why not give yourself a little makeover and pop in one of her films? To make it extra Audrey, indulge with a piece of chocolate, Audrey’s favourite treat. Remember a lovely person by making yourself feel beautiful.

Special thanks to Stephanie for sharing this link with us.

hello again

No Comments 30 March 2008

I can’t thank you enough for your ongoing patience with all this! My computer is fixed, I’m just waiting on acquiring Photoshop and GoLive again so I can fix pictures and webpages, but I’ve still being working two jobs and prepping for a move. So after the move next month, the dust should settle and we should be back to normal.

To make up for my extended absences, here’s a little something for the ladies: an Audrey Hepburn 50s makeup guide, complete with an elfin Audrey look-alike model! Enjoy, and be sure to try it out on yourself sometime soon. Thick black eyeliner’s back in, ya know. 🙂

How to be Audrey Hepburn/Holly Golightly for Halloween

6 Comments 24 September 2007

It’s that time of year again … Halloween! And I’ve noticed that a lot of people have been searching for an Audrey Hepburn costume, so here’s everything you need all in one convenient post. Since most women tend to do Holly Golightly as an easily recognizable Audrey costume, most of these tips are Breakfast at Tiffany’s oriented. The film was recently voted the most stylish film of all time, so it’s hard to go wrong as Holly Golightly!

How to look like Holly Golightly; Audrey interview from 1990

No Comments 28 August 2007

A few days ago I got a message from askmemakeup on You Tube, telling me about a new makeup video she’s done instructing women on how to get the Holly Golightly look in makeup. I watched it last night, and wow! It’s really good. I’ve always had a difficult time with false eyelashes (maybe due to my real eyelashes — they’ve been likened to giraffe eyelashes), but after watching this video I really want to try it again, and I have a good feeling I’d finally get it right. Watch for yourself, then try for yourself!

House of Givenchy still inspired by Audrey Hepburn

No Comments 03 July 2007

It’s been over 50 years since Audrey Hepburn and Hubert de Givenchy met, changing the course of fashion forever. While it may be ancient history to some people, it’s nice to see that even now Audrey is influencing Givenchy, though in a slightly different way. This fall, the Givenchy 2007 makeup collection will feature subtle nods to the one and only Audrey. For example, the 9-colour eyeshadow collection to the left features an Audrey mantra, “Style for Life,” etched into the mirror. There are other goodies that also feature Audrey quotes, along with two shades of lipstick that I’m fairly sure are Audrey-inspired or worn (they’re called Interdit, and her personal perfume was called L’Interdit), but I’ll let you peruse for yourself at Makeup Bag, where I found all of this fantastic stuff.

Sometimes it pays to be a girl, doesn’t it, ladies? 🙂

Audrey Hepburn film screenings near you; give Audrey a makeover

No Comments 12 January 2007

There’s a few new Audrey film screenings coming up that you might want to know about! First up is the British Film Festival, taking place in Tel Aviv. I know it’s a bit of a commute, but the film festival runs from January 18-27. The Ambassador’s Choice film for this year is none other than Two For the Road. I’m extremely jealous, because Two For the Road just might be my favourite Audrey film ever, and it’s not exactly one you see screened very often. Tom Phillips, the British ambassador to Israel, says he chose the film because of Audrey, firstly, and because it’s just such a fantastic relationship film overall. To learn more about the film festival, go here.
