Style Me Vintage
A key 1960s look was that of the child-like innocence epitomised by Twiggy. Essential elements were: mini skirts and flat shoes, short neat little bobs, perfect natural complexion, nude glossy lips, and round doll- like eyes with huge eyelashes top and bottom. Although colours and flowers featured heavily towards the end of the sixties, it is the combina- tion of monochrome clothing and heavily made-up eyes that truly embodies the ‘Swinging Sixties’.

Take your socket brush and, with a very dark grey or black eyeshadow, shade in the socket. If you tilt your head down slightly, you will find it easier to find the correct place to shade. You can blend this a little, but a really defined and arched socket line was very sixties. You can even use an eyeliner pencil if you want a really authentic look.
Take a good liquid, gel or cream eyeliner, and with a fine-pointed brush, apply a line along the eyelashes of your upper lid from the inner to the outer corner. You can build this up gradually, but make sure it is thinner at the inner corner and goes to a point at the other end. Add the classic flick (see page 98) at the outer corners, but make it longer, much thicker and more pronounced for this look.
