The Strict Chic Look

The strict chic look

Take inspiration from flawless vintage style with strict chic. Find out how to get this elegant look, which stands the test of time.

Sleek hair, bold colour and a smooth flawless finish: that’s the heart of the strict chic look. We’ve been inspired by the elegant styles of the 1960s for these make-up ideas and we’ve added a few touches to bring it right up to date. Check out our guide below on how to get a look of timeless beauty.

Make-up how to…

Get flawless skin: It all starts with that flawless finish, so begin by prepping your face with a moisturiser such as Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Complex to make a smooth canvas for your masterpiece. Follow up with a high-coverage liquid foundation: work the formula into the skin and blend it seamlessly with your fingertips for an immaculate, natural-looking finish. Then add a touch of cream blusher, blended on the apples of your cheeks for a warm glow.

Add definition to eyes: Apply a liquid eyeliner along the upper and lower lash lines. To really nail the look, you’ll want a line that is thinner towards the inner corner of the eye and wider as it goes outwards. The pros recommend using a kohl pencil first to trace the shape and ensure a symmetrical look. Then fill it in with the intense liquid liner.

Volumise your eyelashes: Get alluring lashes with an ultra-volumising mascara. Don’t be shy: strict chic is all about bold, dramatic eyes, so feel free to layer the formula repeatedly to build up to the intense effect you want.

Finish with a bold lip Nothing says timeless elegance better than a perfect red lipstick. Pick one with moisturising ingredients to keep your lips looking luscious and go for a strong, deep shade of red such as crimson or even mulberry.

Hair how to…

There’s a strict chic look for every hair preference: you can let your classic Sixties bob hang freely or pile up longer hair in an up-do. Whatever you choose, start by prepping with Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner for ultra-smooth and glossy locks.

To style down: Lightly mist your hair with Pantene Pro-V Protect & Style Hairspray to prevent damage from styling. Then divide your hair into sections and work your way through them with hair straighteners, smoothing out your tresses.

To style up: Make a loose ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Then add an extra touch of elegance by taking a strand of hair from the back of the ponytail and wrapping it around the band. Secure it with a neutral-coloured hairpin. Then spray Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Hairspray to create a glossy, flawless finish.

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
