“This is the idea of innocent, open-eyed awe,” Dubroff says of Hepburn’s classic, “demure” flick. “In the early ’60s, you would follow the socket of the eye to give it more push-back and more of a wider perspective,” she says. “Focus on the outer corner of the crease,” Brooke adds. “That’s what’s bringing [the line] out.”
“This is very much about the lashes and using a shadow to get a very subtle, beautiful line,” says Brooke. “You have to use a matte shadow that’s very finely milled, so you can take it very thick or very thin with more of a glide.” She emphasizes the need to blend the pigment into the lash line. “It’s about making the top of the lashes look dense and full,” Dubroff says, suggesting brown or grey shadow rather than the classic black for a modern update. “There’s a sense of the ladylike, so doing it with dark brown—or a dark grey if you’re very pale—would be really pretty. If you want to do a lip here, it could balance things really well.”
