When I think Burberry® I think Holly Golightly running after Cat, in the rain, in her classic trench coat. What better way to showcase Burberry makeup than recreating Holly’s 1960s Socialite makeup look? Huge thanks to Burberry for spoiling me with some of their gorgeous makeup to try out!

To create the classic 1960s face shape, draw a sharp V starting at the hollow of the cheekbones, and connecting under the chin. Use a cream color under your foundation to draw the V, and blend well. After foundation and setting powder, use a powder a few shades darker than your natural skin tone to trace back over the V shape, further defining the cheek bones. We are not “contouring” so much as using shadows to create the impression of sunken cheeks, and bigger eyes. Use neutral browns and nude shade eye shadows to give the illusion of a deeper set eye. Dramatize the cheek bones with a cream highlighter under your foundation and then a powder highlighter after. Keep the blush to a very light flush of powder, tracing just above the hollow of the cheek bones and avoiding the center apple of the cheek. Give yourself heavy, slightly messy, angular brows that compliment the impression of wide cheek bones. Finish with a dramatic cat eye liner and long, defined lashes. The more spidery the lashes, the better! Choose a nude, light pink or mauve lip color to complete the look and dust with finishing spray to set.

    Is it sad that I didn’t even know they had makeup? I only knew of their clothes and accessories! This is so awesome! Love the lips!

      I honestly have seen very little advertisement for Burberry makeup, so that’s not crazy to hear! It’s SO luxurious though — I was honestly impressed with the quality! It’s up there with Estee Lauder and Chanel makeup for sure!

    This is one of my favorite styles of makeup. I genuinely just love the 60’s in general, but the style and makeup takes the cake for me.
