Nicky Hilton's new makeup inspired by Elizabeth Taylor

Nicky Hilton's new beauty range is inspired by Elizabeth Taylor.

The 31-year-old fashion designer has teamed up with Smashbox cosmetics - which is owned by Estée Lauder - to create three cat eye kits themed around her three favourite cities, New York, Los Angeles and London.

Nicky - the sister of Paris Hilton - admits she turned to the makeup worn by late acting legend Taylor and other iconic actresses for ideas as she aims for that classic Hollywood look when putting her face on.

When asked who inspires her when it comes to beauty, she said: "Elizabeth Taylor, Bridget Bardot, Audrey Hepburn. They were classic beauties who all had signature makeup looks."

Nicky - who is getting married to Todd Meister in a few weeks - was personally approached by Davis Factor, who co-founded Smashbox with his brother Dean, to create a cosmetic range and she instantly came up with the idea to make products for the eyes because they are the "most striking feature".

In an interview with website XOJane.com about her new venture with the company, she said: "Davis Factor of Smashbox has been a friend of mine for many years. He knows how much I love cosmetics. Last year we met up and decided to collaborate on a makeup kit. I instantly decided on the cat eye kit. I'm obsessed with cats and I love sporting a fierce cat eye ... I think eyes are the most striking feature. They say so much about a person. They should be enhanced with beautiful makeup!"

Each cat eye kit comes with a Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio, a Photo Angle Pure Pigment Gel Liner and a tube of Full Exposure Mascara. The range is available to buy now.
