With Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn being used in a recent adverts and an Elizabeth Taylor biopic hitting the small screen never has old school Hollywood glamour been more on trend. There is something about this classic look that exudes sophistication and style and if you have a full diary of events this summer now is the perfect time to unleash your inner siren and dazzle with this timeless look. So here is Shumaila’s guide to how to be the ultimate Hollywood glamour puss.
When it comes to hair it’s all about sexy volume alongside perfect red carpet waves. So think Katherine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Veronica Lake when it comes to styling your hair. They all famously opted for loose flowing waves – a look that oozes glamour. However, if you want to achieve gorgeous red carpet worthy hair you need to make sure your hair is in the best possible condition to achieve the desired results. Therefore, before attempting the look book in for a trim and a deep conditioning treatment so your hair looks amazing. From there either get your stylist to set your hair or put it in heated rollers to achieve a curl and then brush it out for a sleek slightly loose look and you will be able to turn your summer party into a red carpet event.
For that perfect Marilyn Monroe sex kitten look it’s all about the red pout. She simply oozed glamour and sex appeal with her red kissable lips so if there is one makeup look to try out for a party it has to be this one. The key to this style is to make your lips the focal point of your makeup. So opt for a dewy pearlescent foundation with a simple blush. It is also important to keep your eye makeup paired down if you are trying this look so just go for a subtle sophisticated look and let your lips stand out.
However, if you are more of an Audrey Hepburn fan than a Marilyn Monroe girl then instead make your eyes the focal point of your look and stick to a slick of pink lip gloss. Hepburn pioneered the baby doll look so to get the style make your eyes really pop with a slick of Kohl eyeliner and perfectly groomed brows.
When it comes to your manicure the best way to channel your inner glamour puss is with uber sexy red talons or for a subtle take on the trend the ever versatile French manicure. Whatever you opt for make sure your nails are immaculate at all times as no star on the red carpet would be seen dead with chipped nail polish so make sure your nails are in tip-top condition and worthy of any Hollywood star. While for a true Hollywood tip follow Jane Russell’s lead and make sure your lipstick matches your nail polish for a really polished look.
