FOTD Inspired by Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's

After watching and looking at pictures of Holly Golightly's makeup in Breakfast at Tiffany's, I knew I wanted to attempt to recreate the look. Obviously I have features extremely different from Audrey Hepburn (most importantly, my eyes do not have such a large crease) so it looks quite different on me than on her. If you haven't seen my post already, click here to view screenshots of her amazing makeup!

I think the key components of her makeup look are:
  • Thick, slightly unruly brows
  • A light taupe eyeshadow all over the lid
  • Long, luscious, and fluttery lashes
  • A thin, slightly smudge line of winged eyeliner
  • Soft pink blush
  • and of course the perfect pale peachy pink lipstick

 My version:

 Products I used:
Face: MUFE F&B foundation, Bobbi Brown corrector, TheBalm Frat Boy blush, Revlon Vintage Lace matte eyeshadow to highlight cheeks, Fyrinnae Center Stage highlighter to highlight forehead and nose
Eyes: UDPP, NYX Sahara, WnW Nutty, MAC Copperplate, Clinique creme liner smudged, CG Lashexact waterproof, WnW Creme Liner to fill in brows (I was too lazy to apply false lashes)
Lips: foundation to tone down my natural lip color, Revlon Pink in the Afternoon lipstick
