LASHES UPON LASHES

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - ADVERTORIAL -

Back­combed hair, ex­ag­ger­ated liner and barely there lips are the el­e­ments that de­fined beauty of the 1960s: think Twiggy, Jean Shrimp­ton and Nancy Si­na­tra. Six­ties make-up marked the start of a cool, ex­per­i­men­tal move­ment where the pretty cat-eyes of the 50s were wiped off in favour of a more graphic, re­bel­lious look – and lashes took the spot­light. Make-up artist Selina Spit­tler says, ‘Ap­ply a creamy kohl liner in jet black around the eye and smudge it in, blend­ing across the eye line to soften it.’ You can also use a cream shadow with a matte fin­ish to give the look a more cur­rent edge. Fin­ish with falsies or sim­ply add lash­ings of mascara. An­other way to cre­ate that doe-eyed ef­fect is to work your eye pen­cil along the socket line, just below the brow bone. Swap your kohl pen­cil for a liq­uid liner and draw in ex­ag­ger­ated an­gles for an in­stant and run­way-wor­thy up­date.
