1960s Makeup Look: Beauty through the Decades IV
1960's makeup look was very dramatic and the emphasis was on the eyes. It was the ultimate time for makeups. Ladies surely took some time doing their makeups and hairs because the looks were more detailed.
The Pixie Cut (made famous by Mia Farrow)
The face was almost pale. This look was achieved by using a sheer foundation and a translucent powder.
Peach cheeks were famous back in the 60's. Make sure to blend very well to achieve a barely-there, almost natural look.
So, the eyes were the star of the face during 1960's. The eye makeup should be very dramatic and it should appear bigger and rounder. The eyes have a very defined crease. Light greens and blues were used as a base all over the lids. Using an eyeliner, create a thick line (not too thick though) and make it a little higher on the outer corners of your eyes. Now, thick-looking eyelashes are a must! You can use faux lashes on the upper and lower eyelids. Apply thick coats of mascara. Drawn on lower lashes were also very popular back then. It was made famous by Twiggy that's why they were called twiggies.
No more bold, red lips! Light shades of lipstick were preferred to have a pale-looking lips. Pale pinks and peach were mostly used.
