Brigitte Bardot’s sultry smokey eyes and pretty pale pout is one of the most desirable and most iconic looks of all time.  So who better to show you how to recreate her sex bomb look other than Mary Greenwell,  the godmother of all make-up artists (Lisa Eldridge and Charlotte Tilbury both learnt their trade under her expert tuition).

Using Chanel make-up, Mary not only shows us how to recreate a bombshell Bardot  feel, but shows us how to do it in a modern, fresh, youthful way. This means out with caked foundation and a powdery 1960s mouth; the new way to go Bardot is with luminous skin and modern, light textures.
