History always repeats itself, even in the makeup world! The past few decades have brought us tons of revolutionary looks and we always look to emulate them. Starting this week, we are going to bring you iconic looks from each decade. The ’60s was all about the eyes and the most famous model from this generation was undoubtedly, Twiggy! Her doe eyes, bold makeup, and retro style turned heads wherever she went. Follow the steps below to get her famous look.

Step One

Prep your eye lids with a primer. Emphasise the crease of your lid by applying a dark brown or black shadow. Choose a matte formula over a shimmery one.

Step Two

Use a liquid liner to draw a cat eye. Let the line thicken as you go outwards.

Step Three

This look is all about the lashes! Opt for high drama by stacking two pairs of false lashes, one on top of the other, and glue them to your upper lash line.

Step Four

Grab your blackest, lengthening mascara, and bond your natural lashes to the falsies. Exaggerate the lower lashes by applying a coat of mascara.
