The Swinging Sixties

So, I was a little stuck on what to post about today so I was searching around the internet for some inspiration and although my set topic is fashion I've decided upon a more beauty- themed topic. The make up/ beauty side is mainly done in a more couture fashion style than prĂȘt- a- porter. Therefore I feel it still falls under fashion. Just to ensure there's no confusion!

As I mentioned in my "Time to spring clean your wardrobe!" article, sixties fashion is very much on trend this Spring/Summer therefore I have attempted to create some sixties style make up looks for you, inspired by
the Autumn/Winter catwalk shows over the last few weeks.

Note: Excuse my dotty dressing gown!

Firstly, remove all your make up and begin by using a moisturiser such as Simple moisturise so ensure that foundation will smooth over with a satin-like feel. Then add a little powder to matte the foundation. Try to match the foundation and power well, which is why the Fit Me Maybelline foundation and powder matching system works so well!

 Add a little bronzer on the cheeks under the cheekbone to emphasise them! Then use a white/ very light cream eyeshadow in the arch of the eyebrow and create a gradient of creams and browns down to the edge of the eyelid with a palette such as by Revlon. Then begin to use gel liner to line the crease of the eye and flick it out. Emphasise by adding a little white eyeliner under the line. Flick the stereotypical eyelashes out with the gel liner on the bottom corners. Then use the white eyeliner to brighten the eyes.

Finish with a Chanel Rouge lip stick and accessorise with sixties style hoops and boat- neck, monochrome dress.

Et Voila! A sixties make-up look!
