EYE’S – The soft matte contouring of the socket line looks gorgeous and can be adapted to suit every eye shape and then incorporated into your everyday makeup looks.
Tip – Make sure that you have primed your eyelid, either with concealer/foundation and then powder your lid with translucent powder. Alternatively try one for my favorite products – and eye primer – I love the paint MAC paints & Paint pots. For a great 60’s neutral colour – use ‘Paintily’ (this is also great for bridal makeup) If you have darker skin go for a warmer base like ‘Bamboo’ also by MAC.
Sweep a wash of a neutral matte eyeshadow all over your lid, if your fair use a creamy colour, on my model Sophie I used ‘Brule’ by MAC. Again if your darker skin try something warmer like ‘fresco’ by Laura Mercier.
Then find the natural crease of the your eye, using a small fluffy brush and a matte taupe colour, apply the colour to the crease of your eye with a windscreen wiper action, back and forth until you have a soft well blended contour line. Stop there or repeat the action with a slightly darker brown or a tiny amount of black if you have darker skin, if you wanted to create a more dramatic look. Try Omega by MAC for a great contouring colour, and ‘Cafe au lait’ by Laura Mercier if your slightly darker skin.
Finish with Lashings of mascara.
EYELINER – to open up your eye use an off-white or cream eyeliner along the water line, this is much softer than the iconic white liner associated with 60’s makeup. This is also a great tip if you are looking a bit tired! Try MAC’s ‘Chromamatic’ pencil in nc15/nw20.
