My 2020 New Year’s Promise
It's Time to Try Something New!
By Estel Day
My obsession with the
“Brigitte Bardot Look” began New Year’s Eve, 2017, when I first got my hands on JAFRA’s Inkwell Eyeliner, a product I had never tried before. It was sitting in my drawer for some time because I wasn’t sure how to use it, until… I decided to throw a NYE Costume Ball at my house in Malibu. Up until the last minute, I didn't know what to wear. Frantically trying to find a costume in my closet an hour before my party, I caught sight of a dress that I had never worn before with a polka dot bowtie attached. On a whim, I tore off the bow, wrapped it around my neck and thought "BARDOT! Of Course!". So, my transformation began. I grabbed JAFRA’s Inkwell Eyeliner and began painting around my eyes. My eyes looked 10 times bigger when I was done giving myself Bardot's Cat Eyes. I then took JAFRA's Nude Lipliner in "Kate" and drew a line way outside of my lip-line so that my lips would look full and pouty. After throwing on some nude lipstick, I used JAFRA's White Soufflé highlighter to lighten the lipstick towards the inside of my lips to make them look fuller. I teased my hair (which was still yellow from my neon yellow hair dye) and VOILA! I was Bardot!

That New Year's Eve inspired me to try new JAFRA products and those products not only gave me my “signature look #2,” but also became must-haves that I carry in my purse at all times! I probably would have never thought to continue this look after New Year's Eve except that everyone at my party was telling me how stunned they were, that I had never looked more beautiful, and that this was the look for me! And then I thought about it, everyone throughout my life that I met who was rocking that Brigitte Bardot style did, in fact, look gorgeous! So, it began... my year-long journey of Bardot Beauty would carry on into 2018 and 2019. Now I alternate between the “Bardot Look” and my “Old Hollywood Glamour Look.”
From that point forward I vowed that every New Year I would try a JAFRA Product I have never tried before. Now I find myself at the beginning of 2020 and it is time to try something new! The brow pomade is calling my name…
