1960’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Anouk Aimee

Makeup look of Anouk Aimee

Pink maribou! False eyelashes! What isn’t there to love? Here’s what I did to get a flirty 1960’s look inspired by the lovely French actress, Anouk Aimée.

EYES: Being a look that is all about the eyes, I started there. First I applied, e.l.f. Essentials Eyelid Primer as an eye makeup foundation. While that is drying, I applied Alima Pure Satin Matte Eyeshadow in Raven, a dark brown, to brows with a hard, slanted brow brush. For this look, I’m using Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette in Lust and Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Optic, a pale dove gray shimmer. With a medium sized shadow brush, I applied Lancome Color Design Eyeshadow in Optic from lash line to crease. With another medium sized brush, I applied the nude mauve matte in the Wet n Wild Lust palette. I brushed this on under the brows, above the crease, and closer to the inner corner of the eye. In an exaggerated “v” motion in the outer corner and the crease, I applied with a smaller shadow brush, the shimmering smoke shade in the Wet n Wild Lust palette. And I blended outward. I took this shade and lined/smudged the bottom lash line. With a slanted liner brush, I applied Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Cream Eyeliner in Black. I lined thickly, getting thicker towards the outer corners. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Mally Volumizing Mascara to top and bottom lashes. I then applied Ardell Fashion Lashes.

FACE: Under the eyes with a concealer brush, I applied e.l.f. All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige. With a wet sponge, I applied Lancôme Dual Finish Powder in Matte Ecru all over the face. With a blush brush, I applied Physician’s Formula Solar Powder Bronzer in Light Bronze, a matte bronzer, directly under my cheek bones.

LIPS: Lips are sheer and pretty. Directly from the tube, I applied Lancôme Juicy Tubes Lip Gloss in Fruity Pop, a sheer powder pink with pink shimmer.

I want a “pink” juice to complete this makeup look. And that is why I’d love to complete this look with the flirty-cosmetic fragrance, L’Artisan Parfumeur Drôle de Rose. It really goes with the pink maribou.

I really like this look for those with blue or gray eyes. It works for Anouk’s beautiful brown eyes too 😉

I hope everyone has a great first weekend of June. Finally, the weather here is forecasted to be clear and 77. I’m declaring this a regional holiday in the Pacific Northwest. I’m not doing anything but enjoying the sunshine (slathered in SPF, of course). Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Awe, thank you. I think I was “feeling” this one and that is why it worked. Been in a very 60’s “stag mag” mood. My hair is growing out and I’m finally able to curl it so it will get big so I can get closer to the heavens. I love big hair, love it. I used to wear it in a beehive back in the day.

      1. Oh, and I’m wearing that Mally mascara (thank you). Check out my bottom lashes. BAM! Looks like falsies.

  1. V, you are breathtaking.

    I remember Drew Barrymore tried a similar look a couple of years ago. She looked good, but missed the mark and was torn apart by the press. She should have hired you to be her stylist!

    1. Awe, thank you.

      I don’t remember Drew doing this. She has had a career of hit and misses. I really thought she looked awful on the Covergirl ads. She’s the kind of gal that looks better without heavy eye makeup. But, she keeps trying it.

  2. Holy cow! You are very beautiful. Thank you for the step by step instructions. I love AA. She is the reason I tried AG Tubereuse, which is one of my favorite fragrances ever.

    1. Awe, thank you.

      AG Tubereuse is good. The warmer it gets outside, the more I want to wear a tuberose perfume.
