There’s always something about the ’60s that makes it a great source of inspiration. From the mod movement to the hippies, this decade has truly left a mark. This is probably why 1960s fashion is so huge as a trend this year, and stemming from that trend: false eye lashes. These nifty little things allow us to bring out our inner vintage vixens without going through too much trouble, as the Moschino spring 2013 beauty look proved.
“60’s meets Lana Del Rey” is how Tom Pecheux (for MAC Cosmetics) described the look he created for the Moschino show. To truly get the mod look, he used false eyelashes on the upper and lower lash lines over stark white eye shadow. This look is quick and easy to do and we’ve got the how-to right after the break.
How to: Moschino’s mod beauty look
Before anything else, it’s important to prepare your face for the application of make up. It needs to be well hydrated and you can do this by spritzing on MAC Fix+. Once you’ve done this, apply primer all over your face. For the Moschino show, MAC Prep + Prime Moisture Infusion was used to keep the face moist and fresh.
The eyes are the highlight of this look and to get this start by lining your water line with white eyeliner like MAC Eye Kohl in Fascinating.
Define and give your brows a more straigh ’60s look by thickly filling them with eyebrow pencil like MAC Luxe Brow Powder Pencil in Brunette or Deep Dark Brunette.
Finish this beauty look by putting on MAC Lipstick in Morange on your lips and then giving them shine with a coat of clear lip gloss like MAC Clear Lipglass.
Going for a vintage or mod look is simple yet high impact as proven by Tom Pecheux’s look for Moschino. If you want to go all out, pair the beauty look with a 1960’s inspired hairstyle.
