Beauty Trend Spotting 60’s Inspired Makeup

You may find it difficult to modernize bell-bottoms or a crushed velvet blazer, but with a perfectly winged eye and a naturally pale lip, anyone can channel the beauty trends of the 1960’s. Stars such as Kelly Rowland, Zoey Deutch, Mélanie Laurent, and Bella Thorne have all went retro during their recent red carpet appearances. Here’s how to make the trend your own in a few easy steps.

After completing your usual foundation routine, line upper lashes using black gel eyeliner. Celebrity makeup artists love the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. The creamy texture gives you more control for creating straight lines and tend to stay put longer, minimizing smudging. As you work your way to the outer corners drag the fine tip brush lightly upward to create the winged effect. Continue this motion working slightly over the line you’ve created until you get the desired thickness. No 60’s look is complete without intense lashes, so get Twiggy with it and layer on the mascara.

The trick to flawless lips is exfoliation. The pros tackle chapped lips by dabbing their finger in oil and sugar to create a natural scrub. Once your canvas is smooth pat on liquid foundation to even discoloration. Choosing the perfect nude can be a daunting task, but just remember these key things when picking the right shade. Light complexions should opt for nudes with a peach base, as they add warmth to your face. Nudes on the rosy side help to illuminate olive or medium toned skin and a hint of gold makes darker skin glow. Mirror Brigitte Bardot’s creamy lips with NYX Butter Gloss, which has a shade for every complexion.
