Audrey Hepburn's Beauty Tips

My entire life I have adored Audrey Hepburn.  I remember watching her movies as a young girl and being completely enamored by her beauty and grace.  She was everything a woman should be.  One christmas when I was very young, my mother bought me two huge books on Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn.  I would sit on the floor and study their makeup and hair, and try to recreate it as best as I could on my own face.  Both are huge influences in my life, and while possessing very different beauties, both are amazing.  Over time I'm sure you'll notice how often I reference them and bring up their style!


I really don't know how many people know Audrey Hepburn's "beauty tips" poem.  It is one of the most beautiful and honest things I have ever read.  I thought I'd include it in a post... 

Enjoy.  Every woman has something to learn from Audrey.

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.  

For lovely eyes, see
k out the good in people. 

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. 

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. 

For poise, walk with the know
ledge that you never walk alone. 

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone. 

Remember, if you ever need a helping h
and, you'll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. 

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her e
yes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. 

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows. 

The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.

keep it classy, Y Ariel
