Audrey Hepburn Beauty Icon

Bella Donna: Audrey Hepburn

It's almost clichéd to love Audrey Hepburn, but it's almost impossible not to. One of the biggest icons in film history, she's still often cited as one of the world's most beautiful women — even though she didn't always view herself that way. She disliked her crooked teeth, large feet, and flat chest — "I never thought I'd land in pictures with a face like mine," she once said — but those so-called flaws made her even more likeable.

Nearly 80 years after Hepburn's birth, her simply chic style is still inspiring photo shoots and women all over the world. Hepburn often drew thick brows that extended over her natural pair, but for real life, brushing the thick part of your brows upward should do the trick. Lipstick in a pastel pink, light rose, or classic red will give you that Hepburn lip, but don't get too shiny — matte is best. Don't worry about concealing your under-eye circles completely; Hepburn often had the hint of them, which gave her a slightly vulnerable look. For Audrey literalists, you might want to know that she was a fan of Erno Laszlo and Estée Lauder skin care — though if you can't afford a $39 bar of soap, read these beauty tips, said to be among her favorites, instead.
