Recently, one of my favorite beauty bloggers wrote a post about her biggest beauty inspirations (From Roses, post here). I loved reading who she admired and took inspiration from and I think it gave me a lot of insight on what she likes/looks for in products and wanted to share my top eight beauty icons. If you’re curious what 8 fabulous women shape my makeup and beauty preferences (in no particular order), keep on reading and tell me yours in the comments!
The ultimate bombshell/sex kitten, Brigitte Bardot is on my top list for her awesome smokey eyes, nude lips and effortless hair.
Carrie Underwood’s cool blonde hair is what always attracts me to her overall beauty style, but I love how well she pulls off the dramatic, dark smokey eye and glossy nude lip. Similar to Brigitte, Carrie loves to play up her eyes.
The quintessential Hollywood glam that Elizabeth Taylor had just radiated femininity. I imagine Elizabeth would be the sort of celeb these days that baths in La Mer, uses a $20,000 gold body cream and tries all of the newest treatments to keep her skin looking youthful and glowing. Plus, those brows, though…
Gisele is the type of woman who always knows when is enough when it comes to glam. Seemingly effortless, lived-in yet still ‘done,’ I love her golden complexion and perfectly pigmented natural lip color.
My favorite fellow Latina, Jennifer Lopez is ageless. She keeps just getting better and better! She’s probably the best one on my list to compare my own personal skin tone and eye color, so I know if Jennifer can rock it, I can try it out, as well. I love how she can rock any look with a perfectly complemented nude lip. Can you see a pattern here?
Italian beauty, Sophia Loren, is a stunner with those gorgeous doe-shaped eyes. She swore by a Mediterranean diet and it certainly keeps her looking as ageless as possible – even for 82 (now)! Can you see a theme here? Drama on the eyes and soft lip color…
Ever since I watched episode one of Gossip Girl, I fell in love with Serena Van Der Woodsen’s Boho California girl style. I know Serena is not Blake, but I also love Blake’s soft glamour. I mean, have you seen this girl be pregnant!? She’s stunning! I also admire her beauty looks because she has hooded lids (like me).
If there’s ONE celeb I constantly am admiring for beauty and style, it’s Jennifer Aniston. From her perfect not-too-golden, not-too-dark surfer girl, sandy-hair color and sun-kissed makeup looks… to her basic yet well-tailored casual-chic outfits, I just love everything about her. She’s my imaginary celebrity “big sister.” 😛
Who are some of your beauty icons? I’d love to know in the comments and if you’re a blogger and decide to replicate this post, please let me know! It was fun compiling my picks.
