60’s Makeup Lesson – Do’s and Don’t 1969
1. Painted-on eyebrows with over-loaded eye-shadow? – Better do something different, like a soft pencil line. Nut not too thin! Oh, and try those soft pale eye shade colors – they’re the grooviest little things.
2. Don’t tell me a pretty gal like you is still wasting all that cool with heavy, obvious eye-liner! Wow… wake up baby! Thin that line down!
3.Leave off the false lashes, honey. They’re great if you know how to apply them, but please practice first!
4.The looks on the lips is light and tawny! If yours still look like Bloody Mary’s – the kissing ain’t gonna be much fun !
5.Be as natural as possible pussy cat! Sure, use lots of make-up – because it helps to obtain that look! But make sure you’re using it right! Right?!
That’s all !
