I love the looks of the 60’s. I always have. There’s nothing that screams MOD louder then a thickly lined upper lash line with a flick at the end! I mean, Audrey Hepburn did it best-what a look! If you are looking for a feminine “doe eyed” look with a bit of an edge, you’ll like this look! Unfortunately, it is not the easiest makeup trend to re-create! It takes a bit of practice but the good thing is, the black line can be thick so perfecting it is doable.
For a typical “cat eye”, you apply the black line to the middle to outer 1/2 of the bottom lashes. Because I’m always looking to make my eyes look bigger, I left out the liner on the bottom and just used mascara to define my lower lashes. So, let’s dig right in-there’s little to say so I’m hoping my pictures give you the visual you need to recreate this look on yourself!
- Black liner (find it HERE)
- Nude liner (find it HERE)
- Primer (find it HERE)
- Eye Shadow (find it HERE)
- Blush (find it HERE)
- Foundation (find it HERE)
- Lipstick (find Angelic Nude HERE)
- Mascara (find it HERE)
- I applied a primer to my lids because I want this look to stay put and I love how smooth my shadow goes on on top. This is totally optional. Honestly, Tarte sent me a sample of their face primer so I decided to use it for this tutorial. I really like it and have been using it all over-It “blurs” imperfections!!
- Apply a nude shadow over the lid to help further set you liner and shadow then apply eye shadow as usual. Go HERE and HERE for a couple of eye shadow tutorials.
- Draw a line starting from the outer corner of your eye, focusing upwards. Go out as far as you want your “wing” to be.
- Line the upper lid, starting at the inner corner and working your way out. Connect the line to the end of the original line (wing).
- Fill in between the 2 lines.
- Finish up with a THICK coat of mascara or falsies to complete the look!
>>>Optional-If you really want to go for a 60’s look-“twig” out your bottom lashes without leaving a black line in your lash line. I also use a nude liner on my bottom tear line to make my eyes brighter and bigger!<<<
This look can be tricky if you have a hooded eye. Unless you like to accentuate your hooded eye, be sure to shadow over the brow bone to recede the “hood”. Also, this look can be created using a small angled brush and a dark shadow for a softer look! You also can create a softer look with an eye pencil rather then a liquid liner. A regular eye liner pencil can be smudged with a q-tip for less harsh look!
