60s makeup tutorial

My sweet neighbor Jill loves to do makeup.  She mentioned a while ago that she wanted to do my makeup for some of my outfit photos.  She did it in this post, and we decided to find some looks we wanted to recreate.  This week we went with this look from this Richard Avedon Harper's Bazaar cover.

Here is how she did it!

60s makeup tutorial

1. Start by sweeping Clinique foundation all over face. Next, prepare the eyes by applying NARS Smudge Proof eyeshadow base all over the lid. Mattify the lid with MAC's Brulee, a nice matte neutral color. Over this, apply MAC Shroom.

2. With a pointed pencil brush (I used a MAC 219) apply the MAC Chocolate brown pigment (wet) in a strong line where the crease is. You may choose to blend this out with a fluffy brush like I did, or leave the line strong (5).
3. Next, line the upper lashline with MAC Blacktrack fluidline. I chose to add a little liner wing to this look, but it is not required. To fill in your brows, select a complimentary shade. For Mallory, I chose MAC's Wedge eyeshadow. Apply this within the natural brow shape to enhance the brows.

4. Now, onto the cheeks. Sweep Clinique Peony All Over Face Colour onto the tops of the cheekbones for the sculpted look. I also chose to add a highlight with Benefit's High Beam on top.
6. Next, prepare your lashes. You may use any that you wish, but we used self-adhesive lashes that Mallory had. Once you have them applied, apply mascara and curl them. Apply mascara liberally, the lashes in this look are intense.
7. For the lips, Apply MAC's In Synch lipliner as a base for the lipstick. On top, use a frosty pink like Urban Decay's peroxide to finish.

This look is straight out of the 60's but can easily be modernized!
