If you want to be an icon, it’s worth checking out the history of iconic make up looks. I’m not talking about just any old look; we’re talking about iconic here—those who have made a lasting impact on popular culture through their signature style or beauty choices. From Cleopatra to Marilyn Monroe and beyond, there have been many famous faces that have defined the image of beauty over time (and inspired plenty more). If you’re looking for inspiration for your latest look or just want to learn more about these incredible women, this post is for you!

Cleopatra

Cleopatra was an Egyptian pharaoh and the last active ruler of Egypt. She was a descendant of the Ptolemaic dynasty, who ruled Egypt from 305 BC to 30 BC. Cleopatra was born in Alexandria, Egypt, as Cleopatra VII Philopator on June 23rd, 69 BC to Ptolemy XII Auletes (also known as Auletes) and Cleopatra V Tryphaena. She became queen at the age of 17 when her father died suddenly in 51 BC; she reigned for 21 years until she committed suicide by allowing an asp snake to bite her during Caesar’s triumphal procession through Rome in 44 BC

Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor was a Hollywood icon. Her beauty, talent, and charisma made her a household name.

She was known for her iconic roles in Cleopatra (1963) and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966).

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe was known for her blonde hair and red lips, but she was also a talented actress. She was a bombshell who had curves and voluptuous body, but she wasn’t afraid to show it off on screen. She became the first woman to be on the cover of Playboy in 1953 at age 26 (when Hugh Hefner was just 27).

Her makeup look consisted of bright red lipstick that emphasized her sensual lips and high cheekbones. Her eyebrows were plucked into thin arches above blue eyeshadowed lids with false eyelashes applied above them in order to give her face shape as well as enhance her eyes’ size–a technique still used today by many women around the world!

Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn was a British actress and humanitarian. She was known for her style, elegance and sophistication.

Audrey Hepburn’s look has been described as elegant and understated; she favored simple dresses with clean lines that suited her slender figure well, often in light pastel shades such as pink or yellow. She often wore jewelry onscreen (especially when playing Holly Golightly), but offscreen she preferred not to wear any at all since she thought it made her look older than she actually was (she was only 38 years old when she died). Her hairstyle varied depending on the role that she played–it could be styled straight or curly depending on whether it was supposed to be more youthful or sophisticated–but it always looked elegant no matter what style Audrey chose!

Twiggy

Twiggy was the first supermodel, known for her skinny frame and boyish look. She was a British model who became famous in the 1960s.

Twiggy’s makeup look was very simple–she wore black eyeliner on her upper lid, blush on her cheeks and red lipstick. Her hair was styled into short, feathery bangs that framed her face perfectly.

Jackie Kennedy

Jackie Kennedy’s iconic look was a result of her natural beauty, her desire to age gracefully and her personal style. She was known for wearing classic pieces that were flattering but not flashy or ostentatious. Her makeup was minimal and natural, with just enough color to accentuate her features without overwhelming them.

Jackie Kennedy inspired many women around the world with her ability to wear age gracefully while still looking beautiful at every stage of life–from teenager through retirement! Her look has become synonymous with elegance and sophistication in fashion circles around the globe ever since she first stepped out onto national television screens as First Lady during John F Kennedy’s 1961 inauguration parade (you might recognize this famous photo).

All these iconic looks have inspired women throughout history.

In the 1800s, makeup was used to cover up freckles and blemishes. By the 1900s, it had become a part of everyday life for both men and women. Women wore face powder and lipstick as well as eyeliner and mascara–all considered essential in order to look your best!

Today, people still use makeup to enhance their natural features or cover up flaws they don’t like about themselves (like acne). It’s also used as an artistic medium or tool by artists who want their paintings or sculptures to look realistic. In addition, many celebrities have become famous just because of how beautiful their face looks without any help from other people!

Conclusion

All these iconic looks have inspired women throughout history.
