She is the epitome of the sex kitten bombshell. She continues to have a slew of imitators. She is the one and only, Brigitte Bardot. I adore her and think she was the epitome of feminine glamour. I've put together a small list of goodies that convey that "sex kitten" look.
Firstly, you need a good, thick, smudgey black eye. Brigitte never went without it and even added a feline twist to it by flicking the eyeliner upward for a cat's eye. The best black eyeliner I know is Benefit Bad Gal.
A sleepy and smudgey eye needs a nice balanced lip. Brigitte's color of choice was usually nude. I found that Revlon's Super Lustrious Creme Lipstick in Nude Velvet is a good universal nude.
Last but not least, you need the roughed up bedhead hair. John Freida's Luxurious Volume mousse is perfect if you massage it into roots. Follow that up with a nice thick curling iron. Big sunnies, a bathing suit and Brigitte's favorite perfume (Jicky by Guerlain) are optional.
