Modern ways to do sixties inspired makeup

 | By  |  Add comment

From flicked eyeliner to babydoll eyelashes here's how to do 60s inspired makeup without looking like you came in fancy dress.

Sixties makeup trends are making a comeback (again).

From Zac Posen to Paul Smith, models at Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 all more makeup nodding to 60s icons Twiggy and Jane Birkin, while Gucci even continued the trend at their Autumn/Winter 2014 show in Milan.

Rather than a straight copies of earlier looks however, there's a modern twist on each trend. Ready for yet another sixties reboot?

Swap 60s style heavy white eyeshadow for a thin slick of liquid liner, but keep the decade's signature flicks.

This time around, babydoll eyelashes are long but not spidery. Keep them looking luxe, groomed and glossy with falsies or mascaras that don't flake and crumble.

Winged eye makeup is still going strong, but add a modern twist by using two-tone colour and metallic textures.

Flicked eyeliner might be the biggest look of all time, but this season, team your feline flicks with lower lash liner too. Be careful not to join the lines, this look is all about going graphic.
