6 ICONIC FILM LOOKS (TO TRY AT HOME)
To celebrate teaming up with Max Factor, Curzon have picked 6 of the most iconic screen style looks many of us have been inspired to try over the years – something Max Factor have been experts at since 1914....
How many times have you gone to the cinema, fallen in love and tried to emulate the screen siren? It used to happen to me a lot more back in the day because a) I was young then and b) there was no internet so all we had was film. In tribute to our advertising partner Max Factor and the man who invented screen make-up here is our collection of iconic looks and (mis)adventures.
RITA HAYWORTH as GILDA
Is this just a shallow attempt to get a picture of Rita Hayworth into this blog? Yes and no. Yes because er.....obviously..... she’s Rita Hayworth. But those lips! Those eyes! Whether she's lit up in luminous black and white or glossy classic Hollywood shots you can bet your bottom dollar Gilda inspired a nation. Nobody does a red-lip like Rita 💄. (And an honourable mention goes to fellow screen goddess Marlene Dietrich's iconic eyebrows of course).
Frank T.J. Mackey a.k.a THE Sex Guru in Magnolia
Tom Cruise is many things but sexy isn’t one of them. Apart from Magnolia. Was it that fake olive tan? I rather think so. A little bit dangerous, then. Also see Interview with the Vampire where he goes for the wig-and-white-powder look.
UMA THURMAN IS MIA WALLACE IN PULP FICTION
You knew this one would be in here. How many of us didn’t rock up at college the next day in a white shirt. Some of us went as far as the black bob. But it was the nails – rouge noir. Never mind that it was tacky and that you’d find blood burgundy stains across woodwork and the bath.
FAYE DUNAWAY IN THE ORIGINAL THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR
Faye Dunaway (sighs in admiration) rocked the quintessential dark eyeliner and fake lashes look. It certainly worked for Steve McQueen.
JACK SPARROW VS CLEOPATRA'S EYELINER
Long live Jack Sparrow's sex bed eyes - inspired by Elizabeth Taylor's epic cat's eyes in Cleopatra perhaps? Women’s magazines often give step advice on how to create sultry and smoky eyes. I’d suggest just printing out his picture and sticking it near your mirror.
THE LADIES OF OCEAN'S 8
Ensemble make-up is here. As you'd expect if you've watched the trailer the new Ocean's 8 film is a masterclass in women looking great. And what's nice about this is they range in age from 29 to 52. And they are all pretty luminous on screen. This is the kind of movie you need to get your friends out for and do the whole make-up and dressing up thing with fizz before heading to the cinema. Luckily for you we've got a head start with the bag of goodies, bubbly and night out prize for offer in this blog post!
