The Jackie O Glow

In Face Of An Icon on September 16, 2008 at 2:17 am

Jackie O’s iconic minimalist doe-eyed look of the 1960s works for today too.

Start by evening out your skin-tone. Jackie reportedly has a ruddy complexion and used Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Foundation to create her perfect skin. For long wear and a beautiful finish, set with translucent loose powder.

Prep the eyelids with a little bit of concealer or eyeshadow primer. Pat and layer on a matte eye shadow similar to your skin tone all over the lids. Contour you eyes by sweeping a matte neutral shadow that is 2 or 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone into the crease.

Line the eyes with a precise line. Use black pencil or, if you are practiced, use black liquid liner to create an even more precise line. TIP:  shu uemura’s Liquid Eyeliner Pen is notoriously wonderful.

Keep your brows full, but keep them groomed.  Anastasia Brow Gel offers great hold with a natural look.

For cheeks, choose a rosey shade of blush just to the apples of your cheeks to create a radiant glow from within. According to “An Inspired Guide To Distinctive Living,  What Would Jackie Do?” Jackie used Erno Laszlo pink cream blush.

For the lips, pick a nude, pink shade. Adrien Arpel Perfect Pink Lipstick was Jackie’s favorite.  For a similar look, try Elizabeth Arden’s Color Intrigue Effects Lipstick in Pink Honey Pearl.
