Brigitte Bardot’s iconic beauty defined the ’50s and ’60s, and as she turns 81 years old this week, her look remains timeless. Her tousled blonde hair, signature cat eye and pillowy lips have inspired generations of women wanting to emulate the French sex kitten.

Our take on the iconic look lends itself to a little more color, a pop on the eyelids or a bolder lip. Create your liner using a gel, like MAC Cosmetics Fluidline in Blacktrack and an angled brush, flicking the liner up towards the end of your brow. Give your hair volume and get that “lived in” look with a texturing product, such as R+Co Badlands dry shampoo paste, massaging it into the roots and the mid length. Throw on your favorite curve-hugging ensemble and you’re ready to turn heads!
