Beauty tips from Audrey Hepburn...

Whilst most girls may look up to Paris Hilton or the latest WAG I'm really old fashioned. My two idols are Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. In particular I think Audrey Hepburn had a very powerful way with words. This is seen perfectly in 'The 21st Century Beauty Bible' by Sarah Stacey and Josephine Fairly which I came across recently. The beauty tips Audrey shares may disappoint some...in that she doesn't tell you how she achieves that infamous eyeliner look, but for most these tips are far more powerful. We all love a good beauty tip, I'm not going to pretend I don't, but there is something very moving about how Audrey suggests beauty is more than skin deep. She's a truly inspirational lady and I really hope you are all equally moved by her amazingness.

"For lovely lips, speak words of kindness"

"For lovely eyes, seek 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 knowledge you'll never walk alone"

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

"True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows. And the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows"
