What connects me with Audrey? Why her?
I've been in love with Audrey since I saw the Breakfast at Tiffany's movie. Gradually, she added more and more of her films, in which she shone. I was not only attracted by her acting talent, but also by her versatility. Ballet and singing are a pleasant diversion that goes hand in hand with art. She really surprised me with her soft, velvety fragile voice in Breakfast at Tiffany's. It soothed my soul. Sentimental, and yet so beautiful! It is a pity that we cannot do a duet together, that would be the experience of a lifetime. I think we have a lot in common.
"I was born with an enormous need for affection and a terrible need to give it." Audrey Hepburn
Is the scene from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's, as Audrey is getting out of a taxi and heads towards the luxurious Tiffany & Co house. He pulls pastry and coffee from a paper bag, casually bites into it and looks at the gorgeous pieces she can only dream of. She looks dreamy, probably longing to live life differently...
For many, Audrey is a symbol of elegance, charm, refinement, exceptionality, and charisma. That's why I chose her, too!
"As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others." Audrey Hepburn
I like the fact that her rapidly growing fame did not overshadow who she really was. She had a big heart for the people. In the last years of her life, she worked mainly for humanitarian organizations.

Luxurious makeup according to Audrey Hepburn step by step:
Audrey Hepburn, like the entire 1950s era, is characterized by light skin, a distinctive eyebrow, and a distinctive eyeliner. Audrey had an amazing doe look. Here we go!
Step 1: Apply concealer with a brush to your creamed face as light as the complexion of your neck and chest will allow.
Step 2: Brush your eyebrows up and apply eyeliner to it first from the top and then from the bottom, as if you were adding a series of hairs around your eyebrows – they must be wider!
Step 3: Powder you eyelid and apply a light brown eye shadow to the fold of the eyelid – this will deepen the eye.
Step 4: Apply the liner from the outer corner of the eye inwards. To make the lines of both eyes end in the same place, first mark with a pencil where they should end.
Step 5: Apply mascara only to the upper lashes, in several layers. They should create an impression of artificial lashes.
Step 6: Finish off the Audrey Hepburn look with a beautiful red lipstick.
A manual for the perfect hairstyle with which you will look like a true Audrey!
Step 1: Divide the hair into 2 parts: Upper part – (the so-called hat line leading from the temple across the crown of the head and the hair twist back to the second temple). The lower part – described below.
Step 2: Attach the upper part to the top of the head with a clip.
Step 3: Start combing the lower part by separating vertical strands of hair about 3 cm wide and backcombing them. We then move from one side forward, and do the same on the other side. In this hairstyle, we continuously spray the hair with a lighter spray as necessary and according to the fineness or density of the hair.
Step 4: We smooth the backcombed strands back with a brush.
Step 5: After smoothing one side, pull the hair to the head and pin it firmly. We pin it vertically in the center of the head away from the hair twist to the neck.
Step 6: We brush the other section back over the first smoothed hair section, and before attaching it to the base, we twist it around the pin so as to cover it a get a loose strand at the top. When twisting this strand, we use hairpins that are discreet and hold the hair in place perfectly.
Step 7: We backcomb the remaining strand, smooth it and attach it to the hair twist.
Step 8: We loosen hat line, divide the hair from right to left (about 5 triangles from ear to ear).
Step 9: We backcomb each triangle, smoothen it and gradually roll and place over the top of the head. We must not forget to attach them individually with a pin or hairpin.
Step 10: From the back to the front we gradually lay and twist the hair to fill the top of the hairstyle. We do not tighten it too much; the hairstyle must be higher in this case.
Step 11: Smooth the last strand by your face and comb it backwards, we don't insert the hair tip into the hair and we do not hide it like the other strands, but pull it out over the forehead.
Step 12: Finally, check the hairstyle and add hairpins as needed.
Step 13: Fix the hair with hairspray and use a product to enhance shine.
