Actress Marilyn Monroe’s valorous crimson lips are the most classic beauty trend of all time with the erotic smoky eye following nearly behind.
Beauty and health retailer, Superdrug conducted the study on its 50th anniversary and 2000 women took part in the poll.
Monroe exhibited the dazzling radiant pout during the 1950s and 1960s, but most prominently in her 1955 film ‘The Seven Year Itch’. Her look was later imitated by musician Robert Palmer’s backing singers in the 1980’s video “Addicted to love” and is preferred these days by superstars like Paloma Faith, Gwen Stefani and Rita Ora, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The classic and timeless dark smoky eyes are the second most iconic look. It is loved by socialite Kim Kardashiyan and singer Cheryl Cole.
The look that first gain trendiness in the 1960s is false lashes. It is a must-have look which is still very popular and the third most iconic beauty trend. It is now worn daily by the likes of TV personality Sam Faiers.
Designer Victoria Beckham’s mastered good looking fake tan bronzed effect is the fourth most stylish beauty trend of all time.
The very well-known heavy eyeliner is another most elegant and everlasting look. It was made popular by “Twiggy” in the 1960’s and still as famous today as it was then.
Superdrug’s buying director, Simon Comins said: “In the latest history there have been some really iconic beauty trends. The fact that some trends have come and gone, and then come back shows that beauty trends are as cyclical fashion, and they have all been shown off by the popular faces of the day.”
The study discovered that one in five women has emulated an iconic look from a star and closely half said popular faces were where makeup-trends emerged from.
Most of the women wish they would be enough brave when it comes to experience new and latest beauty trends. The typical woman just tries out three of the iconic beauty trends during her whole lifetime.
Comin also said: “The result also shows that the power of a splendid red lip remains one of the women’s favourite and the most sensational look.”
