EOTD - Swinging Sixties

Sixties make up is hottttt!
I seriously wish everyone wore their make up like this nowadays.. such a gorgeous look.
I thought I'd try and recreate it, it's not my best work, but it's all fun at the end of the day :)


My Interpretation

Products used;
Natural Collection eyeshadow 'Sea Shell' - All over eye
Sleek Bad Girl 'Noir' - Crease
Eyeko Graffiti Liner 'Jet Black'
Benefit Eye Bright pencil - Waterline & under lower lash line
ELF Dramatic Lash Kit
MAC Penultimate Brow Marker

The idea of the Sixties make up is to focus purely on the eyes. Skin is matte, without blush, lips are always a soft nude colour and eyes are dramatised.
Idealy you want to use matte eyeshadow for the eyes, my base colour has a slight pearlescent to it but it was the best I could use at the time :)
Hope you enjoy this post as much as I did creating it!

wow, that make-up looks great, I love the strip of black eyeshadow & the blending. What brushes do you use, I'm on the lookout for some new ones but just don't know which to go with! Thanx

I love this post! The sixties were my favorite era ever and that look is just so lovely.

Thank you for the comments. In this post I used my MAC 239 to place the base eyeshadow and then for the crease I used a MAC soft angled brush, the number has rubbed off though.. Can't remember what one it was lol.
