A mix of monochrome, thick deckchair stripes, giraffe prints, were what stood out for me at this show – a real strong collection!

Make – up 

To me this shouts 60’s an era I just adore.

1960's makeup

The iconic Edie Sedgwick was the inspiration for the make-up.

1960's makeup tips

The skin was kept fair, and the design was kept with Edie in mind but updated and fresher making the eyes more subtle but keeping them defined and taking a little inspiration from Greta Garbo for the softness.

1960's makeup advice

The crease was defined with black liner but kept a lot thinner and cleaner.

My key tips to recreate this look are as follows:

Eyes

– Prime with a neutral cream shadow over the lid of the eye

– Define the crease of the eye with a black or dark taupe liner or if you are doing for the first time, I would suggest using an eyeshadow to mark out the socket where you want to use the liner

– Add a bold but clean black liner close to the lash liner, taking it out slightly wider

– Finish with full set of lashes

Brows

– Define the brows using an eyeshadow 1-2 shades darker than your natural hair colour, use and angle brush to get the strong angler shape. You want them to be bold and frame the eye

Skin

– Keep skin light and matt – Chanel Mat Lumiere is good as is matt but light reflecting

Cheeks

– Keep barely there, a slight flush is good but don’t go to rosy

Lips

– You want to keep these nude and matt, there are some great nude lip colours out there and the key is only going again 1-2 shades lighter than your lip colour alternatively you could use a concealer

– But remember with matt colours on your lips, you need to make sure they are prepped and there is no trace of dryness

– Try making your own lip scrub beforehand to get rid of any dead skin and get the lips plumped – mix sugar, some olive oil and some peppermint essence

Now get creating 🙂
