Beauty Icons 101: Brooke Shields

HerCanberra Team

WHO DOESN’T DREAM OF POSSESSING THE LOOK OF THEIR FAVOURITE SCREEN SIREN?

From Audrey Hepburn’s doe-eyed lashes to Monica Bellucci’s waves, everyone has a beauty icon they dream of emulating – and it’s not unattainable. This week it’s Brooke Shields circa The Blue Lagoon.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT BASE, ‘BOUT THAT BASE

Prepping your skin is one step you don’t want to skip. A moisturiser onto clean skin followed by a primer depending on your skin type is non-negotiable — they’ll rescue your face from the ravages of the weather and give you longer wear.

For a soft-focus glow and the perfect canvas, pair BECCA Backlight Filtering Primer all over the face with their Under Eye Brightening Corrector then follow with their latest flawless finish foundation, Aqua Luminous. All can be applied with a brush, fingers or a damp blending sponge.

GET CHEEKY

Keep the glow going with a cream or liquid based blush for that fresh, dewy flush. We love BECCA Beach Tint cheek and lip stain in Guava. This gorgeous product guarantees smudge-proof wear, buildable pigment payoff and that fresh, soft-gloss finish.

Follow by sweeping BECCA’s signature Shimmering Skin Perfector from the highest point of your cheekbone to the outer arch of your brow. This will give you subtle highlights, lift and radiance.

BROWS ON FLEEK

When filling your brows always remember less is more – if you don’t require fill then don’t. Swap colour for gel and a soft, matte under brow highlight to define your lines.

We recommend starting with your favourite brow, tracing along your bottom line from the beginning to your arch then down through your tail in one continuous line (then follow and repeat on the second brow).

If that’s all you need then just brush through and
 voila! If you need more fill throughout the brow, softly enhance sparse areas then brush through with a brow brush or spoolie to mimic natural hair growth.

If you find that your lines are asymmetrical and messy after fill and brushing (because you were never great at colouring inside the lines), never fear! Simply take your matte highlight or concealer and an angled brush or cotton tip and clean up around your desired shape.

TOUSLED WAVES

You’ll need Wella’s EIMI Sugar Lift Spray and Ocean Spritz Salt Spray, a blow dryer, a Cloud Nine Wand and Paddle Brush.

To start, spray hair down with water and follow with generous amounts of Sugar Lift at the roots and Ocean Spritz on the mid-ends.

Dry the hair, make sure it’s 100 percent dry by rubbing the roots in circular motions and ends in a twisting motion. Lightly brush out ends, if knotted too much.

Separate the hair into three equal horizontal and six vertical sections and wrap the hair around the wand starting at mid-lengths and leaving out ends. Hold your finger on the hair until it’s too hot to keep there and let it drop.

Let the hair cool for 10 minutes – if you can leave it longer (up to 30 minutes), it will add to longevity of the style. Use a paddle brush to lightly brush ends out until you’ve achieved a natural looking shape – it doesn’t need to be perfect!n
