This fall, we’re inspired by French women and their fuss-free approach to beauty. Their secret? It’s all about balance and simplicity.
Taking cue from Brigitte Bardot’s signature bold cat eyes from the ’60s, line your top and bottom lash line and waterline with a black eyeliner pencil and wing it out and upwards to form a pronounced cat flick. The trick is to draw the line slightly thicker towards the outer corners, to make the eyes appear more almond-shaped like Brigitte’s. Then, take a pencil brush dipped in dark brown eyeshadow and smudge it all along your lower lash line to create a smokey and sultry effect. Apply a smidgen of that same brown shade onto the crease for some definition and complete your look with a touch of apricot on the lips and cheeks.
