1960's Makeup: Making a Comeback


Vintage makeup has been making a comeback in recent years, but most of the attention has been focused on the 1950's: vibrant red lips and thickly defined liquid eyeliner. But the 1960's are also coming back in. With Scarlet Johansson's role as Janet Leigh in Hitchcock, a biopic of the famous director, the 1960's are looking more glamorous than ever.
If you want to get a gorgeous 60's look using products that you probably already have in your makeup bag, follow my 5 easy tips:

1. Distinctive brows - The 1960s were all about bold brows, but you don't have to go OTT to get the look (let's face it, not everyone can pull off the darkest of brows!) but applying your brow pencil a little more heavily will help to make your brows really stand out, then set them in place using a brow gel to make sure they stay looking bold and beautiful all day.

2. Naturally Flawless Skin - Choose a tinted moisturiser or BB cream instead of a full coverage foundation to get a naturally glowing completion like Scarlett has in the film. Combined with a heavy duty concealer for any major imperfections. You'll be left with skin that looks naturally perfect.

3. Flushed Cheeks - Use a red stain on the cheeks and lips to give them that natural flush and bee-stung look. If you want to up the glamour stakes, add classic red lips to take the look from daytime to nighttime with ease.

4. Doll EyesAdd a little matte eyeshadow to the eyelids in neutral shades to enhance the natural contour of your eye, before taking your liquid liner just to the edge of
your lash line, not beyond. This creates an open doll-eyed look rather than the feline cat-eye more commonly associated with liquid liners. Finish off your look by curling your lashes, then add your favourite black mascara.

5. Voluminous Locks - When it comes to 60's hair, the more volume the better! If you want to go all-out with a 1960's 'do then good for you, I'll personally be sticking with just a little extra 'oomph' when it comes to the hair!

  6. Oh wow, this is such a beautiful look on you! The eye part is always the hardest part for me as well as the brows because my eyebrows are already dark and they don't do well with the whole 60's feel (at least I don't think so!) But I definitely would like to attempt this look :)

  14. I love 1960's make up especially the doll look on the eyes. I have been trying to find a good peachy coloured eyeliner for my waterline to wear with liquid eyeliner but no success so far! Can you recommend anything??

  40. It's so awesome this sort of look is making a comeback! It's got such a chicness about it, I think most pre-70's make up has. I've been drooling over the make up in Mr Selfridge, have you been watching it Fleur?

  51. It looks lovely. The make up I see some girls have is ridiculous and is either too light or too dark and looks completely fake! I think this looks great because it looks more natural which I think is a much better look.
