Brigitte Bardot Makeup

Brigitte Bardot Makeup

Brigitte Bardot Makeup was sexy. Very sexy. This gorgeous French model turned icon Brigitte Bardot was the height of sexy in those swingin’ sixties.

With tousled hair and those come hither eyes, her look defined – and still defines – the irresistible bedroom chic that is so wildly sought after still today.

Just take a look at bombshells like Kim Kardashian, Adele, Scarlett Johansson, and Beyonce to catch a glimpse of the modern Brigitte Bardot makeup influence.

Bedroom eyes begin with a swipe of crease proof eye shadow base, like Urban Decay’s Primer Potion. Apply just a dab with your ring finger to keep your eyes as fresh as when first applied.

Ms. Bardot used a basic black shadow to smoke out her eyes, and Sugarpill Bulletproof is a great one. Using a small shadow brush, tap off the excess and lightly apply your dark shadow all over the lid.

Focus most of the application closest to the lash line and blending out just to the crease of the eye. When working with strong pigments, a little goes a long way, so be sure to add just a bit of color and build to desired intensity.

Continue to blend and extend shadow past the outer corner of the eye to lend even more of a cat eye shape – ideally splitting the difference between a coy pin-up and Cleopatra.

Next go in with your liquid liner to line the upper lid, again extending beyond the outer corner of the eye and adding a bit of that cat-eyed flick at the end.

Finish off those bedroom eyes with many coats of a high-on-drama mascara like Dior Show Mascara, or Benefit’s Bad Gal Lash.

But wait – there’s more to this look than just a smokin’ hot eye to get Brigitte Bardot makeup.

Brigitte Bardot had bone structure for days, so play yours up with a swipe of warm apricot blush, like NARS Luster or the slightly more peachy cult-favorite Orgasm applied right along your cheekbones.

Finish the look with a pale, fleshy pout. Begin by applying a bit of foundation to tone down some of the natural color in your lips, and then add some shape with a nude liner, like MAC Oak.

Warm shades like NARS Barbarella are satiny and sheer, but you can kick up the sex appeal with something a bit glossier, like MAC C-Thru or NARS Turkish Delight (a favorite of the aforementioned Miss Kardashian). And there you have it!

This is a look that can easily be adapted to suit burgeoning sex kittens of all style levels – try swapping the basic black shadow for deep shades of plum, navy, chocolate or olive.
