FOTD: 60s inspired look!

I’ve recently become a little obsessed with 60s makeup and have been experimenting with different ways of wearing makeup to emphasize my eyes.  One of the most classic and obvious ways to make the eyes appear bigger and brighter is to apply a white kohl pencil on your water line.  Taking this as inspiration, I created the look below.  I’d call it 60s makeup with a peachy modern twist!




L’Oreal Infallible Foundation in Porcelain
Collection 2000 Long Lasting Perfecting Concealer in Fair
Lily Lolo’s Mineral Foundation in Porcelain
MACs Melba Blusher

Sleek’s Au Natural I-Divine Palette (Nougat)
HD Brows Brow Palette (used as eyeshadow, eyeliner & to fill the brows in).
Sleek’s Lash Out Mascara
MAC’s Blacktrack Fluidline
Miss Sporty Mini-Me Eye Liner in Snow (on waterline)
Fake lashes (from eBay)

MAC’s Kinda Sexy Lipstick
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in Peach Passion #13

I decided to also wear my hair up for this look to add a bit of glamour and sophistication, which you can see below.  I only have one image of my eyes closed wearing this look (which is unfortunately bad quality as I took it on my ipod), but I’ll put it below also, so you can see where the eyeshadow was applied. 

I really love, love, love this makeup look so I’ll definitely be wearing it more often – although I would say this looks 10x better when worn with false lashes (which I don’t want to be wearing daily) but it’s nice to add some glamour to everyday life!

  14. 60' is probably my favourite makeup look and you've made me fall in love with it all over again!

  15. OH, I wear white eyeliner every day. I am bit stuck in the routine. I've been trying black the same way you wear it, but I am still not brave enough to leave the house. Even thought I absolutely love it on you! It just looks to raccoon eyes on me. Love the look you created with the falsies. My white eyeliner is from Sephora. It's probably my 5th!! That's how stuck I am!! hi hi I adore your hair!

  16. I love wearing white on my waterline! It would be great to see a 20's flapper inspired look!

  17. Your makeup is so pretty!! How do you like Mac's Kinda Sexy lippy? I can't decide on whether to buy it or not. :)

  18. Great make-up, I definitely have to try this some time :) I also love wearing white on the waterline, I'm just having a problem with finding a liner that would stay there and not disappear too soon...
    Well, you could always do 80's make-up, or for making emphasizing your eyes Twiggy's make-up would work well I think :)

  19. Your eyes are stunning! That lipstick is also gorgeous, I'll have to go and check it out at my local MAC soon x

  20. You look so pretty x

  21. This is so pretty, I just still, can't get a nice straight line when doing black eyeliner on my top lid D:
    I wear white eyeliner in the inner corner of my eyes most days though!

  28. Wow this is gorgeous! Do you have the link for the ebay lashes? I would like to see a neon lip look if you get the chance xx

  29. Wow love that eye make up, definitely going to be giving that a go! xx

  30. hello! This look is beyond beautiful!! I am the same exact shade as you in foundation, you look as wonderfully fair as I :] so I've gotta know where did you get that loreal foundation in porcelain? I've scoured the net to no avail and still can't find a place to purchase it :[ must not be in the USA I guess :[ any info would be gr8! Also, I wanted to say that writing that post about your scoliosis struggle was so inspiring for me as I too am a young woman with scoliosis, just about the same curve degree as you took mine was caught at about the same age as yours was but when I was evaluated no surgery or brace was done/used. I'm 24 now and married and I notice the effects of having a curve a little everyday, sore knees, and just overall feeling of being curved and imbalanced, I'm sure you knew the feeling. I'm so glad to hear you made it thru such a trying surgery and recovery! You're so brave! I'm extremely blessed to not have the scolio effect me in my everyday life! Anyways, just wanted to say thank you for writing that post, I'm sure its helped so many already!

  31. I totally love this look ! It is perfect and fits for everyone ! Looks sooo beautiful on you :)

    Great choice !

  33. Very nice make up!! Thanks for sharing this post!
