Get the Look: Modern Day Bardot

Beautysets - Get The Look: Modern Day Bardot

Photographer: Artiese Studios, Makeup: Joy David-Tilberg, Hair: Emily Pike, Model: Betta (Spot 6)
Trends come, go, and come back again. I love recreating modern versions of iconic beauty looks. Brigette Bardot’s sexy kitten eyes and big bombshell hair is making a comeback thanks to musicians like Adele and TV shows like Mad Men. This is a sexy look that will work for everyone.
Be a modern day Bardot with these easy hair and makeup tricks that will work day or night! I interviewed hair expert, Emily Pike, who helped me create this look on our model Betta.
Get the Look
Makeup:
  • bdellium Tools #710: To recreate a sexy cat eye, a thin pointy liner brush is essential for a precise application. The look I created was a mix of mod 60’s and a cat eye. I love bdellium brushes and the 710 is easy to control especially if you’re lining in the crease.
  • tarte cosmetics Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner in Plum: To bring this look to modern day, I thought using a coloured liner would give it a fresher look. I love these creamy liners from tarte. They apply so smoothly and stay put all day – no creasing or fading. The shades are vibrant and pigmented. Dip your line brush into the product and start by lining your top lash line and wing it out towards your brow. Then start at the inner corner and make a line in your crease meeting with the tip of your winged liner. Leave the lid bare or apply a beige or white shadow to really accentuate the shape. Use the same liner and brush to line the bottom lash line and join it with your top liner. Use a black liner to line the waterline to give the eye more drama. To make this work for day, skip lining the crease and bottom liner.
Hair: 
  • Schwarzkopf OSiS Dust It: This style works best on hair that was previously curled a couple of days before. Brush your hair and use a dry shampoo or a mattifying powder like Dust It by Osis. This will help give you amazing volume and absorb the oils in your hair to refresh your look. Dust your product of choice at your roots and and massage at your scalp with your finger tips. Use the same motion that you would when washing/lathering your hair in the shower.
  • Teasing Comb: Become ONE with a comb – it’s time to tease, tease, tease like crazy! Once you’ve teased your hair from ear-line to hairline, smooth it all back and off your face with a light touch and a soft bristol brush. Take your time and check how it looks in the mirror as you tame the beast of frizz into the perfect shape and desired amount of volume. To make this look more modern and work appropriate just pull a small section of hair from above both sides of your ears and pin them at the back of your head. The result: a mod version of “half up-half down”  with volume and a soft wave. Gorgeous!
