Watch This Woman Transform Herself Into Audrey Hepburn With Makeup

"Taking beauty tips from Audrey Hepburn seems like a no-brainer — after all, she is often cited as one of the most elegant and stunning actresses in history. Makeup artist Kandee Johnson took it one step further by actually transforming herself into Audrey Hepburn using expertly-honed beauty techniques."

Marilyn Monroe Make-up Tutorial – 1950s Makeup Look

"Marilyn Monroe’s makeup is Hollywood Glamor at its finest, ever since the 1950s.

This Is How You Can Get Selena's Amor Prohíbido Look Using Her MAC Collection

"When I heard MAC had partnered with Suzette Quintanilla to launch a collection inspired by Selena's most iconic beauty looks, I could barely contain my excitement. All I could think about was re-creating her gorgeous brows and superpigmented lips from the Amor Prohíbido album cover — my favorite Selena album as a child — and a few days before all 13 products in the highly anticipated collection hit maccosmetics.com, I got the chance to do it."
