The Blonde and The Brunette has been scouting the the sixties trend all over the runway (as seen at Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Dsquared and Jean Paul Gaultier) and we can’t help but reflect the look in our makeup. Its time to channel your inner Brigitte Bardot, Diana Rigg, Mia Farrow and Twiggy!
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS COVET WATERPROOF EYELINER
Once set, Anastasia’s velvety Covet Waterproof Eye Liners are the holy grail of smudge, tear and panda-eye-resistant pencils encased in the most ergonomically useful . These strongly pigmented, twist-up eyeliners are available in five smouldering shades; Noir (jet black), Azure (deepest navy blue), Vert (glittering golden green), Steel (metallic charcoal) and Astral (shimmering dove grey), so there’s a colour for every occasion.
Tips: Apply liner as near to the lashes as possible for a vibrant eye. When creating dramatic eye make up looks, apply liner and mascara before your base, so you can neaten any wiggles or smudges without having to re-do your entire face.
Eylure Strip Lashes £4.94
False eyelashes were responsible for creating the iconic eyes of Twiggy, Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra and Jane Fonda in Barbarella. These fake eye lashes bring you an affordable way to inject some old-school glamour into your lives.
Tip: Once you glue on these bad boys let them dry and then use one coat of mascara to blend your real lashes into the strips.
DJV Beautenizer £18.00 is one of the top selling mascara brands in Japan – one of the most notoriously difficult to please & fickle of beauty markets. Aptly named, Volume Lash does for your lashes what donuts do for your arse. It is so refined that instead of looking like you’ve got two spiders cellotaped to your face, this lash enhancer just gives the look of the genetically blessed. Name a potential mascara fault and this genius product solves it.
And finally top off your 60’s look with a nude lip!
