My Ultimate Beauty Icon

If someone were to ask you who your ultimate beauty icon is, who would be the first person to pop into your mind? It could be anyone from a celebrity, to a blogger, to your friend or even a random girl at work that always has impeccable make up. (If the latter relates to you, please ask her how she gets her make up so perfect with so little time in the morning because that is a skill in itself and I need it!)

Well House of Fraser is asking this question to everyone who would like to be in for the chance to become their ambassador for the next 12 months. You can follow this link here to read up on all the details and apply for this amazing opportunity.

When I read this question, I knew who my ultimate beauty icon would be. She was known for her sultry looks and distinctive voice. Her name is Lauren Bacall and ever since I was a little girl, she has been my beauty icon. I was first introduced to Lauren Bacall by my nanna, when she gave me Lauren Bacall's biography to read, after the first page I was hooked. 

Aside from her sultry looks and distinctive voice, Lauren Bacall was also known for the 'Hollywood look' which entailed the bold red lip and defined eyebrows, accompanied with the smoldering stare.

To perfect the Lauren Bacall Hollywood look, I would use;

NARS Cosmetics lip liner in Jungle Red

MAC lipstick in Ruby Woo

Benefit Gimme brow

Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil 

I also have eyebrow stencils which I purchased off eBay for 99p, you get 4 in a pack and one of the stencils within the pack creates the perfect 'Lauren Bacall' eyebrow shape.

Who would you pick as your ultimate beauty icon?
