How To Do 1950s Retro Make-Up Like Audrey Hepburn

Make-up artist Jo Reid shows you how to do the iconic retro look as made famous by Audrey Hepburn, Scarlett Johansson and Gwen Stefani.

Eyebrows should be thick, lift slightly at the arch and taper towards the end.

Prime the eyelids with primer, foundation and translucent powder.

Apply a matte, sable eyeshadow to the eyelid from the base of lashes up into the socket.

Apply the same colour underneath as an eyeliner to make your eyes look larger.

Use a gel eyeliner along the top lashes, taking the line up and out, and increase the pressure as you move to the outer edge of the eye to get a thicker line. Blend the edge of the line with a blending brush to thicken further.

Use a thickening mascara on the top lashes, wiggling the wand from side to side to coat each lash. Use the tip of the wand to apply mascara to the lower lashes.

Apply under eye concealer and blend down and out.

Create a matte complexion with translucent powder.

Contour the cheekbones with a matt contouring powder, and apply it with an angled brush, starting at the highest point of the dip in the cheek. Start at your hairline and work forward. Finish the cheeks with a natural powder blush, brushing downwards onto the cheekbones

Line the lips using a lip brush and a red / tangerine lipstick.
