Simone Signoret Style

On the weekend, we rediscovered actress Simone Signoret whilst watching a double-feature of Diabolique and Games on the penultimate episode of TVO’s Saturday Night At The Movies. Inspired by the great beauty’s middle-aged look (and suffering with insomnia), I decided to play around with makeup to see if I could recreate a toned down version ofher classic, cat-eyed look.

Signoret Style Makeup

Maybe I’m still addled from lack of sleep, but I kinda like it. I basically used some makeup I had lying around to prime my canvas: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB to even out skin tone; Joe Fresh Cheek Tint in Peach; Joe Fresh Lip Duo in Ingenue to gloss the lips. Then I used Clarins Ombre Minerale 4 Couleurs to creat my feline gaze. Like Signoret I skipped the highlight and contour and used a peachy shade to cover the lid all the way up to the brows. Then I used the medium brown to draw on some arched eyebrows. And finally, I layered on the darkest brown shade to line the upper lid only. C’est tout.
