A few days ago I stumbled upon this post, saying that House of Fraser is on the search for their Beauty Ambassador. Considering how much I love beauty and blogging, I think I would be perfect for the role, so here I am with my entry! 🙂
They asked us bloggers to create a post inspired by our ultimate beauty icon. When I hear the phrase ‘beauty icon’, my mind immediately goes to Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Their looks are iconic and I’m sure they’ll keep inspiring women from all around the globe for decades to come, but my personal favourite has always been Grace Kelly. She had this sophisticated elegance and kindness radiating from inside out, and to me that’s the epitome of timeless beauty.
Now, you may wonder why I’m even mentioning Grace Kelly when my post clearly has Scarlett Johansson in the title. Well, if you’ve been following my blog for at least a year, you’ll know that I already did a Grace Kelly inspired makeup tutorial. It’s the tutorial I’m most proud of, since a lot of research went into it and you guys seemed to have loved it as well! If you still haven’t seen it, you can watch the video here.
With all that in mind, I decided to pick who I think is the modern version of the Old Hollywood movie star this time around, which is where Scarlett Johansson comes into play. She too is captivating but down to earth, fun but classy, and her red carpet looks are always amazing, whether they’re edgy, glamorous, natural-looking or have a twist to them.
I’ve been meaning to create something colourful, and her 2011 Academy Awards red carpet makeup look was exactly what I was looking for – fun but wearable, perfect for a night out on your long-awaited summer break. To see how I created the look, watch the video below, and don’t forget to tell me who your beauty icon is or where you would wear this look!
