Mod Baby Doll

The 1960s were a time for fun makeup looks. It's an era that I draw a lot of inspiration from  when it comes to beauty -- I love the teased bouffant hairdos and the graphic eye makeup. One of my favorite looks is the infamous Twiggy makeup: black pencil in the crease with painted on lower lashes, giant false lashes, and everything else muted. 

Watch my tutorial on how to get this look and how to make it wearable!

I used two shades from The Chocolate Shop palette from Two Faced Cosmetics. This was a holiday exclusive palette from Christmas  2016, and it's one of my favorites -- it has so many great neutral colors. To set my eyes I dusted Glaze (matte nude) all over the lid, and then after applying the black liner, I added Dessert's On Me (white shimmer) to brighten the lid.

Speaking of black eyeliner, the only one I'll ever use is the Tattoo Liner by KatVon D Beauty. I use to struggle with liquid liner until I found this little guy -- it's pen-like applicator makes it easy to hold and control and the pointed tip allows for precise application.

Before applying false lashes, I curled my own lashes and added a thick layer of this Total Temptation mascara from Maybelline. This is a new product for me (I'm on a constant hunt for the best mascara) and I'm not quite sure if I love it yet... To be continued.

My favorite part of every makeup look is the lashes, and Ash Lash has some of my favorite styles of falsies. The 'Lana' are perfectly tapered and flare out on the outer corner, which helps to elongate the eye and create a feline-like shape. They are super long and luscious, which helped to complete this mod doll look. Next time I'd like to use her '1960s' style lashes, which are more rounded and would have complimented this eye look perfectly. 

 The finished look!

The finished look!
