60’s Makeup Lesson – Do’s and Don’t 1969

60's makeup - eye shadows
Soft pale eye shadows

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.

60's makeup - eye liner
Make those lines thin

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!

60's makeup - lashes
False lashes are the in thing. But leave them unless you know how to apply correctly.

3.Leave off the false lashes, honey. They’re great if you know how to apply them, but please practice first!

60's makeup - lipstick
The 60s lipstick look is pale. The emphasis must be on the eyes.

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 !
