From Audrey Hepburn at Breakfast at Tiffany's to Emma Stone at La La Land. On BeautyHack - cult movie images with comments from makeup artists and stylists.
Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's
Audrey made the role of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's as a cult figure in the film industry. She herself has repeatedly admitted that she considers "the role of a girl with a pure heart and not entirely pure dreams - the best in her career."
A high bun, cropped bangs, fluffy eyelashes and nude lipstick - the image of the heroine Audrey turned 57 this year!
Audrey Hepburn, "Funny Face"
From this shot, the girls' love for midi-length wedding dresses began. The film "Funny Face" was released in 1957, a couple of years ago brides chose "heavy" closed dresses with flowing skirts made of impractical materials (in the 40s, for example, parachute silk was used). Audrey's wedding dress is the result of one of the first and longest collaborations between the star and the brand. The satin and tulle dress was created by the founder of the Givenchy fashion house, Hubert de Givenchy.
But not only the dress is remarkable in this film. Audrey removed her hair as much as possible, styling it with gel, and opened her face, showing wide natural eyebrows and bright lips (in the 60s, girls from Hollywood's A-list adored carrot lipstick). Another innovation of Audrey - a veil pinned like a hood!
Marion Cotillard, Allies
Good work of dressers and make-up artists is one of the first things people say about the Allies. They drew on the experience of colleagues from the movie "Casablanca".
The main make-up artist of the melodrama is Christophe Danshaud, who has been working with Cotillard for more than ten years on the set, on carpets and in advertising (for example, Dior bags). He was inspired by the American actresses of the Golden Age of Hollywood, Katharine Hepburn and Gene Tierney.
"Refined glamor" - this is how the makeup artist described the image he created. Its main ingredients, according to Christophe, are "red lips, perfect but very pale skin and a black liner." Read about how to repeat the makeup here.
Kim Basinger, Los Angeles Secrets
The role brought Kim an Oscar and a Golden Globe. Despite the fact that the star here is not the most righteous role (she plays a "call girl"), the image turned out to be very beautiful, and stylists have been taking an example from the Hollywood wave like "Lynn Margaret Braiken" for 20 years.
Stylist Evgeny Nasanovich recommends repeating the hairstyle with a large diameter curling iron (on average 32 mm). “Let the finished curls cool, comb through them with your hands or with a wide-toothed comb and sprinkle with medium hold varnish. If you want a Kim-like effect, use a hair gloss. The main thing is to comb the waves well so that they do not look like "icicles".
Monica Bellucci, Malena
Initially, Sophia Loren claimed the role of Malena. But the actress refused to shoot, and the project was postponed for five years until Monica Bellucci appeared in it. Her hairstyle in the movie looks perfect with a tight, sexy suit or a feminine dress (don't forget to wear red lipstick). An important part in this image is Monica's gaze.
“The square, slightly shortened at the face, is the basic shape that is relevant at all times. The most important thing is to properly curl your hair with a large curling iron. Twist the strands in different directions, due to this, the curls are tangled and very interesting. In order for the curl to start from the middle of the hair length, it must be combed out carefully,”explains top stylist Ivan Anisimov.
Miranda Priestley, The Devil Wears Prada
Meryl Streep brilliantly played the role of the editor-in-chief of the glossy magazine Miranda Priestley. The prototype of this character is Anna Wintour, who has been the head of Vogue since 1988!
Top stylist Ivan Anisimov comments on the image: “I recently watched this film and wondered if Meryl’s haircut is relevant now? The gray shade goes well with darkened temples. I even tried a similar coloring: I used a cool shade on top and dark blue for contrasting temples. To be honest, this haircut is very difficult to style."
Mia Farrow, Rosemary's Baby
Mia Farrow's hairstyle in the thriller by Roman Polanski was invented by stylist Vidal Sassoon, the author of the signature haircut Twiggy and the five-pointed bob Grace Coddington. But in an interview with the New York Times in 2013, Mia said that she had cut her hair with nail scissors before filming, and Vidal only brought her hair to perfection!
Uma Thurman, Pulp Fiction
The main accent of Uma's image in Pulp Fiction is geometric bangs. And now it is relevant again! The main thing is to think about whether it will suit your type of face. “Do you want to repeat the same haircut? Ask the master to make a classic "grown" square with elaborate ends, "advises Ivan Anisimov.
Julia Roberts, Pretty Woman
The image of a girl of easy virtue Vivienne with her perm created a revolution. Silver, blue, blue shades of shadows are in fashion, and lip gloss practically replaces lipstick in cosmetic bags. By the end of the 90s, the emphasis is shifting towards brown shadows of varying degrees of saturation.
“I am ready to cut such curly hair all day long! This expressive texture attracts attention with its naturalness and lightness. A hairstyle like Julia's, I advise girls with a natural curly texture. If your hair is very frizzy, you need light styling,”stylist Viktor Komsky comments on the look.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex and the City
Sarah Jessica Parker's hairstyle became her brand back in the 90s, so the actress does not experiment with styling until now. Curly blonde with medium length hair and light makeup (and more often without it) - this is how we will forever remember Carrie, whom Sarah Jessica played at the age of 33. Read more facts about the show here.
Jane Birkin, "I Love You, I Love You"
Jane Birkin is a trend. “I love that French minimalism, bangs that go straight into the eyes. They do not flip to one side, but they climb into the eyes! I am for simplicity. My motto is: "The simpler, the sexier." Jane must have thought the same way,”Viktor Komsky comments on the image.
Emma Stone, La La Land
Makeup artist Torsten Witt worked on Emma's makeup. The master's regular clients include Jodie Foster, Meryl Streep and Matt Damon. For Emma Stone in La La Land, Torsten created several looks to show the evolution of the heroine from a barista girl to a Hollywood star. In each case, the makeup artist focused on the lips and perfect skin, bypassing the rich eye makeup, which, according to the master, greatly changed the star.
Gwyneth Paltrow, The Tenenbaum Family
In the film by Wes Anderson, Paltrow's character always attaches an accessory to her hair - it creates an accent. If you think accessories are a thing of the past, check out our selection of trendy hairpins, headbands, bows and elastic bands!
This hairstyle will suit girls with medium hair. It is important that your hair is not very thin.
Leighton Meester, "Gossip Girl"
The show featured many successful preppy looks for brunettes and blondes. Layton's styling is a good example of how to wear hair accessories. “The red ribbon can always be replaced with a simpler one. In combination with bangs and strands released at the temples, it will turn out great,”explains stylist Evgeny Nasanovich.
Brigitte Bardot, "Contempt"
Brigitte always said that the main adornment of a woman is posture. Her first husband Roger Vadim admitted that he first fell in love with becoming a Bardot, and only then with everything else.
The actress never considered herself a canonical beauty and encourages all women not to be afraid to be imperfect, but to learn to love their flaws, as she herself once fell in love with lips of an unusual shape, which she owes to an incorrect bite. Brigitte boldly emphasized them with a nude pencil, and also always made arrows, visually lengthening her eyes.
Courteney Cox, Friends
The episode where Monica and Chandler finally got married was released in 2001, and the style of the bride's dress is still devoted to boards on Pinterest. It's about the minimalist design that House of Bianchi came up with.
The heroine of Courtney - Monica - has a very natural makeup and hairstyle that reveals her face. All attention is paid to tone. This kind of makeup can be done in everyday life, but the make-up artists of Friends chose it for one of the iconic episodes of the series.
Meryl Streep, Manhattan
A very simple look for every day, which in the case of Meryl Streep has become a cult. “A natural light brown shade works here,” explains stylist Yevgeny Nasanovich. "But if you want to look the same, remember that your hair must be very well-groomed: regularly update the ends, and if there is not enough volume, do the side parting."
Helen Hunt, "What Do Women Want?"
The charming Nike project manager Darcy McGuire, whose thoughts were read throughout the film by Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson), was played by Helen Hunt. Sweet on the outside, "iron" on the inside - this is how you can describe Hunt's heroine: nude makeup, classic styling, soft smile, but steel character!
Audrey Tautou, "Amelie"
Paris, short bob, scarlet lipstick, Jan Tiersen tunes, a scooter and a handsome guy with an expressive French nose. The images of touching introverts Amelie and Nino are back in fashion! The French couple would have loved XL blazers, Kandinsky-print sweaters and extremely short haircuts.
Marion Cotillard, Midnight in Paris
Woody Allen was able to convey the atmosphere of the "Roaring Twenties" in the world of the Parisian beau monde. This is largely the merit of Marion Cotillard - her elegant bob is laid in a smooth wave, her eyebrows are subtly plucked in the manner of Louise Brooks and Paula Negri. At the time, matte skin without a hint of radiance was in vogue - in the film, the actress does not even use blush.
Elena Yakovleva, "Intergirl"
The 80s are high and lush hairstyles, arrows of neon colors, blush, shaded in a wide stripe on the cheekbones. It is customary to buy foundations 1-2 tones lighter to make the shadows and lipstick look even brighter. In the West, the trends were set by Madonna and Michelle Pfeiffer, while in Russia the image was successfully embodied by Elena Yakovleva in Pyotr Todorovsky's Intergirl.
Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde
Typical noughties fashion can be seen in Legally Blonde: Reese Witherspoon wears blonde curls, uses pink lip gloss and matching blush. Some heroines of the tape do highlighting, which was the most fashionable type of coloring. In the 2000s, an abundance of beauty products and services was cultivated, and the image of a woman was unified to the capacious word "glamor".
Jean Seberg, "In Last Breath"
We wrote about the pixie haircut, graphic arrows and the plump lips of Jean Seberg more than once. If you're not already in love with this actress, you haven't seen the kissing scene from Jean-Luc Godard's movie!
“I like the haircut of the French arthouse star Jean Seberg because it's short! The hairstyle is simple, tousled. Hair of the same length - I love this "perfection" - says Viktor Komsky. The stylist advises girls with thick hair to take Jean's photo to the master - they will not need styling. Slightly curly hair will create a natural texture.
Grace Kelly, Courtyard Window
The painting "Window to the Courtyard" by Alfred Hitchcock was released in 1954. In it, Grace got one of the main roles - she played the girlfriend of photographer LB Jeffries Lisa Fremont. On the set, Kelly was consistently good - a romantic Hollywood wave with a low bun (a really complex hairstyle that only a professional stylist can do), fluffy eyebrows and carrot-colored lipstick are Grace's favorite tricks! It was in this way that the actress received an Oscar in 1955, and a year later she married the Prince of Monaco, confidently saying goodbye to her acting career.
Michelle Pfeiffer, "Scarface"
During the filming of the film in 1983, Michelle Pfeiffer was practically unknown, but the role of the drug dealer's wife Elvira changed everything. Then the actress was 25 years old, and along with her acting talent, the actress was glorified by her branded bob with bangs and expressive nude makeup.
Sienna Miller, "The Factory Girl"
In the film, Sienna played Edie Sedgwick, the star of Andy Warhol's Factory. Hair and makeup - all from the 60s!
Eddie's image was copied by "multimillion-dollar copies": a haircut for a boy, a cold blond, arrows and false eyelashes - this is how the most fashionable girls in New York looked in those years. Sedgwick had an insane amount of makeup. Warhol wrote: “50 pairs of fake eyelashes sorted by size, 50 bottles of mascara, every shade of eyeshadow ever released by Revlon - pearlescent and regular, matte and shiny, 20 boxes of Max Factor blush … She sat for hours on her cosmetic cases, on all gluing labels, wiped and polished bottles and boxes”.
Catherine Zeta-Jones, Chicago
For this work, Katherine received an Oscar in 2003 for Best Supporting Actress. At first, the actress was offered the lead role of Roxy Hart, which was eventually played by Renee Zellweger, but Jones refused, and insisted on her own version of her character, Valma Kelly, with a short bob haircut. Indeed, the look in the style of the 20s, complemented by doll eyelashes and the irrepressible energy of the actress, remains cult even 15 years later.
Mila Jovovich, The Fifth Element
Mila starred in the famous film in 1997. Since then, she has inspired thousands of girls for beauty experiments. The last successful remake of the image happened this year - Natalia Vodianova tried a new shade of hair in the style of Lilu (see the photo of the model at the link).
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
Makeup for the "dark side" of Natalie Portman's heroine was done by the MAC team Whatever they say about the film itself, the makeup artists coped with their task - just look at the number of tutorials and boards on Pinterest, inspired mainly by the painting.
The head of the film's makeup team, Maggie Durand, says that the biggest challenge was redoing the makeup several times a day: “First we had 'Black Swan', then 'White', then 'Black' again. And we always had to adjust the makeup, because we had a lot of close-ups during the dance numbers."
Carey Mulligan, The Great Gatsby
In The Great Gatsby, Carey looks very stylish - in the spirit of Baz Luhrmann's film. The hairstyle is light, but with the key details of the 20s - bangs and an accessory on the head.
Carey feels this hairstyle and presents it masterfully. Stylist Viktor Komsky advises to repeat the haircut for girls with thick and straight hair.
