There’s truly something about vintage that we all love. Over the years, the looks of yesterday have provided designers a great source of inspiration. The runways today are filled with decade inspired collections that are given contemporary twists to better suit the woman of today. Nowadays, vintage not only inspires clothes but it also serves as a reference for makeup. More and more people are looking up the vintage ways of putting on makeup and the result oozes with gorgeousness and empowered beauty.
As a stylist, Rachel Zoe was always outspoken for her love of vintage and now that she has conquered the runways with her own line of clothes, she paid homage to this love of hers. The ‘Rachel Zoe fall 2012 collection featured pieces right out of the 60s and ‘70s and of course, Maybelline New York makeup artist, Charlotte Willer, made sure that her beauty look tied up with the entire collection. As the models walked down the runway, they all looked very ‘Rachel Zoe’ sporting strong feline-rock inspired eyes that were an ode to the London rock scene of the ’60s and ’70s much like the entire collection and the folk-rock hairstyle were.

How to: mod rock inspired makeup
As with any beauty look, it is important that you start with a priming routine to keep your skin moisturized and healthy. The best way to do this is by using a makeup primer that has moisturizing and SPF capabilities. Apply it all over your face right after washing and patting it dry.
For well-defined and strong looking cheekbones, take a bronzer and apply it just below your jawline using a good powder/blush brush. Make sure you blend it well for a natural looking contour.
This look features very strong feline like eyes and to get this, the first thing you need to be armed with is gel eyeliner. Using an eyeliner brush, apply eyeliner on your lash line starting from the corner or your eye and gradually getting thicker as you reach the outer corners.
Having really strong eyes means that you don’t really need a strong lip colour. All you need is a good beige coloured
lipstick and you’re all set.
