Modernised Famous Portraits With Current Beauty Trends

Modernised Famous Portraits With Current Beauty Trends

Posted on by Jenny Ho

Our beauty experts and designers have reimagined what famous women in famous portraits would look like if they were to abide by current beauty trends and live in modern society. From lip and cheek filler and a variety of shades of lipstick, through to daring eyeliner and a mix of false eyelashes, some of the women definitely suit the latest beauty trends.

Mona Lisa 

Mona Lisa (before and after)

(Before and after)

We’ve reimagined The Mona Lisa to have a more prominent jaw line and cheek bones, thanks to the use of contouring and highlighter. She’s been given tanned skin and thicker, more defined eyebrows, as well as a more defined nose, thicker lips with pink lipstick and a soft necklace with the initial M for her name.

Mona’s false lashes are inspired by the Ardell Wispies.

Girl with a Pearl Earring

(Before and after)

The Girl with a Pearl Earring portrait has been recreated with a more glam look; fake tan, a bling earring and a silver nose stud complement her face. We’ve also imagined her to follow the trend of having her eyebrows micro bladed, largely for more definition and visibility, along with bigger, more prominent lips.

Her eyelashes are inspired by the Kiss Magnetic Eyelashes & Lash kit.

American Gothic

American Gothic (before and after)

(Before and after)

The lady in the American Gothic piece of artwork has been modernised to be exactly that - a little more gothic. We’ve given her thicker lips, drawn on for a fuller effect, and a more defined cupids bow, accentuated with a splash of dark purple lipstick. Her make-up is more full-coverage, with heavy foundation and blusher to add a touch more colour to her skin.

The Lady’s false eyelashes are inspired by the Red Cherry Demi Lashes (Jane).

Anne Boleyn

(Before and after)

Anne Boleyn has been modernised with higher, more prominent cheek bones to draw attention to top of her face, especially her laminated eyebrows, while a brighter lip colour with a touch of lip filler helps to complete her look. She’s also been given a daring septum piercing to add to her clear love for jewellery.

Anne’s eyelashes are inspired by the Boldface Lashes Star Power.

Catherine of Aragon

(Before and after)

Here, Catherine of Aragon has been given a thinner, more defined facial structure. There is an element of bronzer on her cheek bones and forehead, with added dark eyeshadow to make her eyes pop and a peachy lip to complement her skin tone. When it comes to her eyebrows, we have kept them thin but more defined as though she has gone over them herself with an eyebrow pencil darker than her usual shade.

Catherine’s eyelashes are inspired by Eylure Fluttery Light lashes.

Frida Kahlo

(Before and after)

Frida Kahlo has been reimagined without her monobrow, with so many women keen on grooming and eyebrow perfection these days, but her brows themselves remain thick, daring and noticeable - a key trait of Frida’s. Adding to the allure, she has been given a dramatic swoosh of winged eyeliner and even thicker lips than the ones she has to sit alongside her other prominent features. The addition of highlighter across her cheekbones helps to fade out the redness in her cheeks.

Frida’s eyelashes are inspired by the Taylor Doll Beauty lashes.
