1. Invest in Quality Hair Care

Audrey was known for her immaculately styled hair that was impressively healthy-looking. This is because she paid good money to maintain her locks.

In 1974, she met famed stylist Philip Kingsley who then created his iconic Elasticizer with her in mind. The product is a pre-shampoo product to make the hair appear healthier and bouncier. Reports claim that  Audrey was obsessed with the product and would have multiple tubs sent to her.

2. Spend Extra Time Perfecting Your Lashes

In our Old Hollywood Beauty Hacks article, we revealed that Audrey had a special trick to achieve her iconic eyelashes. She turned to the old school safety pin to perfect her lashes.

After coating them in a nice thick layer of mascara, she would use a pin to separate every lash. While the technique is too dangerous to attempt, we can get the same effect by using a lash comb and good quality mascara.

3. Define Your Cupid’s Bow

Audrey crafted her look to be ultra-feminine. One of her favorite tricks to achieve this was by creating a dramatic Cupid’s bow.

In order to create a crisp line that defined her Cupid’s bow, she used a lip liner to outline it before applying her lipstick. To exaggerate her natural lip shape, even more, she would dip the liner a little below her natural Cupid’s bow.

Multiple sources claim that the star’s perfect skin was due to her getting a steam facial twice per week. Recently, home facial steamers rose in popularity in the beauty world and we can see why.
