November's Beauty Icon: Bo Derek

I have decided to choose a Beauty Icon every month. It can be anyone: actress, celebrity, model, writer or a person I work with.
This month I looked at the list of famous people who were born in November.

November's Beauty Icon - Bo Derek
Her story was classical for Hollywood - romance with a actor/director/cinematographer and photographer John Derek that made her his muse and later his wife.
Best-know for her role in film "10", the scene of her running in one-piece bikini made her a sex symbol of 1980s. 

Bo played the ideal woman - a perfect 10! Beautiful skin, blue eyes, amazing body and cornroad hair helped create that fantasy woman look. That braided hairstyle became iconic! Even now, 30 years later you can still go to the beach and get your hair done like Bo's. 

Bo Derek, 55 still stunning and in perfect shape. She maintains her age-defying physique and wholesome good looks with a vegetarian diet and an active, outdoorsy lifestyle. Instead of workouts she does horseback riding and caring for her 10-acre ranch in Santa Ynez, California. 

Bo doesn't spend a lot of time worrying about aging and won't to go 'under knife' yet. "When you look at women who had plastic surgery, they have lost something - usually an expression, something unique to their face."

Bo doesn't have many anti-aging secrets other than exfoliating her face every day and wearing hair pieces to camouflage her thinning hair. Her only beauty regret is that she spent way too much time in the sun when younger and also suffering sun burns that did long term damage to her skin. 

Bo always looks stunning. Her makeup and hair decisions are always simple and elegant. For her Red Carpet events she often chooses classical looks. 

How to get Bo's Signature Look?

1. Beautiful fresh skin. U can achieve that look using light foundation or tinted moisturizer and cream blush in pink or peach color depends on the skin color. Apply blush only on the apple of the cheeks.
2. Grey smokey eyes. Use black pencil really close to the lash line + blend line out with grey matt eyeshadow. Keep application light and only on the lid. Apply grey shadow along lower lashes all the way to the inner corner.
3. Groomed eyebrows. Make sure your eyebrows are in perfect shape and nicely brushed. Fill them in only if needed. 
4. Light lips. Bo's choice - light pink lipgloss that makes her look young and fresh.
