Tutorial: Brigitte Bardot

 A long while ago I made a Brigitte Bardot video, and I've always wanted to revisit it because Bardot's iconic look is one of my favorites! She exudes a sexy, feminine confidence without it being too contrived. It probably helps that she was an absolute stunner in her youth! She was one of the few European film actresses of her time to garner worldwide fame, not only for her acting but also due to her ravishing beauty.

What made her makeup look so flattering is that she wore mostly warm-toned neutral colors, and played up her natural features very perfectly. Darkly lined eyes, full lashes, and a sensuous, pouty mouth were her trademarks. This look continues to be an inspiration for many celebrities today - when you think about Adele or Lana Del Rey, they definitely channel some of Bardot's earlier style.

Here is how I translated Bardot's look...
