2. Grace Kelly’s iconic beauty look
Grace never believed in following a particular trend. She instead preferred a more understated and timeless beauty. She was a bit coy and alluring when it came to makeup and liked to keep it more classic. Her signature look included flawless creamy skin, neutral eyes, a pop of blush, and berry-stained lips. Grace has also been known for her perfectly looking blush. She preferred using two different shades for a sculpted look that included a lighter colour on the cheekbones and a darker one beneath it. Her raspberry coloured pout is still mimicked and she liked to have a satin to a creamy finish.
3. Fifties glam
Grace Kelly was also known for her iconic classic curls. She loved keeping her hair glamorous and perfectly finished in finger-style curls. This look was an epitome from the fifties and we can’t stop admiring her style and looks. Inspired by her fifties look, here’s how you can recreate the look as well.
Step 1: Take a hair curler with medium sized tongs and start to curl your hair.
Step 2: Wrap section by section towards your face and not away from it.
Step 3: Make sure that you don’t wrap them tightly or you’ll end up with having spirals or tight curls.
Step 4: Our goal is to achieve loose curls so take your own time in creating them.
Step 5: Once you’re done, take your brush and gently brush out the curls.
Step 6: Also, if you want the typical look of Grace, you can go all out and create a faux bob.
Step 7: This is such a classic vintage glam that is still followed by many even today.
