How to Do Your Makeup and Hair Like Brigitte Bardot

Brigitte Bardot Makeup and Hairstyle
French sex kitten Brigitte Bardot had one of the most memorable come-hither looks of her time (famed designer Robert Cavalli found inspiration in her makeup for his spring 2009 runway show, featuring the work of cosmetics guru Pat McGrath). Not all of us were born blonde, but you can create a Bardot-inspired mood by using the right makeup and wearing your hair in loose, luscious curls. Herein, a crash course in totally retro—but still relevant—Brigitte Bardot makeup. Try it on in our virtual makeup studio.

Brigitte Bardot achieved sexy bedroom eyes by way of black eyeliner and dark eye shadow smudged all over the lid. Use an angled eyeliner brush with a pointed tip to paint your upper and lower lashes in luxe noir color. Apply several layers to increase the intensity, making sure to extend the outer corners of the eye upward and outward in a cat-like style. As a finishing touch, secure a full strip of false eyelashes to the upper lid with lash glue.

Brigitte was blonde, so her brows were fair. Make dark, smoky eyes the focal point of your look by keeping brows nude. If you're a brunette who aspires to look like Brigitte Bardot, use an eyebrow pencil a shade lighter than your natural brow color and brush them upward with a brow gel that's tinted blond or caramel.

Nude lips with subtle apricot undertones are Brigitte Bardot's signature. Use a nude lip liner pencil to outline your pout, then slick on concealer to tone down the natural color in your lips. Apply nude lipstick with your fingertip and layer the color until you achieve your desired effect. Skip the gloss to get a Bardot-inspired matte finish .

Brigitte Bardot is the queen of tousled hairstyles. Cultivate Bardot's sexy boudoir mood (regardless of whether or not you have long hair) by wearing it down. Create undulating waves with large Velcro rollers and try a deep side part or style long bangs over one eye in Jessica Rabbit fashion. You can also channel Brigitte Bardot by curling your hair and wearing a half up, half down hairstyle with spilled tendrils. --Stephanie Simons

You can try using velcro rollers to get the waves (better than using an iron...which can tend to curl the hair wayyyy to much). This comment has been removed.
