More 1960’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Jane Fonda

Oh, Jane Fonda, one of my favorite blondes. This is a simple look really. Just remember it is all about the eyes.This is a look that works well with most pale/light to medium complexions with the products mentioned below:

FACE: Apply concealer where needed. For me, this is applied under the eyes and I like Prescriptives Site Unseen Brightening Concealer. Apply a matte foundation like Estee Lauder Fresh Air Makeup Up Base if you like liquid or Maybelline Pure Stay Powder Foundation (not pictured) if you prefer a powder. Cheeks are super sheer with the faintest hint of a flush. Use a tiny bit of Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Frosting. I love this color and formula for a faintly flushed look.

EYES: Fill in brows with an easy-blending powder and brush into place with a wax. Urban Decay Brow Box is a great product for this. The colors in Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Eyeshadow Quad in Suede Browns are nice for this eye. Take the lightest shade, a pale beige, and apply all over the eye lid from lash line to brow. Take the medium brown shade and apply from lash  line to crease. In the crease, apply the darkest espresso brown shade and blend with a nice blending brush. Take this same dark shade and apply it to the bottom lash line with a fine brush. Apply more of this shade to the crease and go as dramatic as you feel comfortable with. Next apply a liquid liner such as MAC Liquid Liner in Boot Black. Apply a thick line and wing out slightly. Curl lashes and apply mascara but to get the real deal look, apply a strip of false lashes like Ardell. Coat bottom lashes with mascara.

LIPS: The lips are super nude and almost look like concealer applied over the lips with a balm added. You could use a color like NYX Round Lipstick in Iced Honey or Chambord for a beige-ish nude color or B-52 if you want a little more pink, OK much more pink but still have that 60’s nude lip. Sorry, I have no pic of these but they are in my own collection and I love them for these kind of looks.

I really think that this looks needs a fresh, green, citrus scent such as Prescriptives Calyx. I really need to pick up a new one of these, almost out.

UPDATE – This is an old post, so a lot of these shades are no longer available.

  1. I had a chance to get to know the bride’s two maids of honor in this past year when I shot a booudir session for one and a baby/family session for the other, so Joel and I felt very much at home and welcome
