With the 1960s makeup trend in full swing, we can’t help but gawk over the beauty look we spotted in the Marc Jacobs spring / summer 2013 show. Edie Sedgwick is a trued icon of the 60s. A socialite, heiress and actress, we best know her as Andy Warhol’s muse back in the day. In the present day, she served as the muse for Francois Nars, founder and creative director of Nars Cosmetics, giving us this 60s yet still very modern look.
This look features different shades of brown and nude skin which makes it the perfect 60s mod look for those who prefer earth and neutral tones. Despite being inspired by the Mod era, the look is still very Marc Jacobs, very chic and very New York as Nars would describe it. Strong and striking, you won’t believe how easy it is to get this spring 2013 beauty look. Check out our complete how-to right after the break.
How to: Marc Jacobs ‘Factory Girl’ makeup
Start by prepping your skin with a make up primer. This will keep your skin hydrated and will make your makeup stay on longer.
One of biggest characteristics of the 1960s make up trend of this year is nude skin. To get this, apply your foundation all over your face. This look is matte but still has a certain glow over it: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation was used to get this effect. For areas that need extra attention use a concealer like Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer.
This beauty look has really pale lips and there’s no better way to achieve this than by applying concealer over them. The best way to do this is by starting on the outline of your lips and then with your fingers, spread the concealer inwards. This will give you a natural looking pale lip.
Strong, thick and well-defined, the best way to get the eyebrows of this look is by using eye shadow. Nars used Bali and Bengali, two really dark shades to fill in the brows. Remember to draw your eyebrows square with arches that are sharp and clean to really get a graphic ’60s look.
The eyes for this look are a good mix of black and brown eye shadows. Nars used Pandora Duo Shadow, Portobello Duo Eyeshadow and Key Largo Duo Eyeshadow for the Marc Jacobs show but feel free to use similar shades. Start by applying brown eye shadow on the lower half of your lid with a brush. Then using the same color, line your lower lash line.
This look is very striking yet still is very flexible with the use of very neutral tones. You can wear it day or night and it really doesn’t matter if you’re going all out 60s mod or you just want a hint of it. Edie Sedgwick remains a style icon, someone who truly made her mark and you can be sure that when you step out wearing this make up look you’ll also make heads turn.
