Fashion & Beauty Advice: Inspired By Brooke Shields

By Maggie Malach

Brooke Shields has been known as a beauty icon for decades. Never overdone, Brooke’s make up always accents her best features. Vincent James, Director of Artistry for The Makeup Show, The Powder Group and On Makeup Magazine, shows how easy it is to achieve Brooke’s classic look:

With her fresh face looks and innocent sexiness Brooke Shields changed the world. Those eyebrows, Blue Lagoon and the uttering of the words…”nothing comes between me and my Calvins” made her one of the most famous faces in fashion of all time. To achieve the look let the eyebrow stay full and natural and fill in with soft taupe pencil and shadow for depth and dimension. Keep eyes and cheeks soft and innocent with the same shade of subtle pink. Let lips stay Lolita luscious with a peachy pink gloss to give a pop to your natural lip color and the perfect Pretty Baby pout.

Vincent James’ resume includes clients as diverse as Lady Gaga, Liv Tyler, Regina Spektor and Jane Fonda. He has been featured on numerous television shows as a beauty expert such as NBC Universal’s Home Delivery and NBC’s The Today Show. Nylon magazine and WWD have named James as a “makeup artist to watch”.

James will be at The Makeup Show NYC, May 16 & 17 at Metropolitan Pavilion.
