I’ve been on a 60’s kick lately…but I always do that in the summer. I love a good campy, mod look. Here’s Britt Ekland on the cover of a 1966 Vogue looking absolutely stunning. Mod perfection. And before her Bond Girl fame.
FACE: There’s a nice dewiness to this look that I love. It “reads” as very modern. I applied Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream in Light Medium with my fingers. Under the eyes I applied MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC20 (*note that applying concealer under the eye doesn’t make the eye makeup steps very easy, if you can avoid this step, avoid it). I took a powder brush and applied a dusting of Coty Airspun Powder in Neutral. And then I dusted Hourglass Ambient Lighting Finishing Powder in Diffused Light with a kabuki brush. On the cheeks I applied NARS Blush in Orgasm, a peachy pink.
EYES: I filled in brows with Rimmel Professional Brow Pencil in Dark Brown and then combed. For the eyeshadow I used Physician’s Formula Matte Collection Quad in Classic Nudes. I applied the lightest shade from lash line to brow. I then applied the darkest shade in the crease. I used the matte side of Shu Uemura Eye Light Pencil on the bottom waterline and also lined the top lash line. I wet a fine liner brush and applied Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner in Soft Black to the top lashline slightly winging out. I also used this to draw in bottom lashes. I curled lashes and applied Hourglass Film Noir to top lashes only. I then applied a strip of Ardell lashes.
If I had to pair this with a fragrance, I’d do Chanel Cristalle EDP.
I like the look. I should have went longer with the bottom lashes but the concealer didn’t make that too easy. It amazes me that one can walk around with drawn on eyelashes and nobody says anything. I’ve learned that people never say anything so do whatever the hell you want.
How has your week been? Any weekend plans? It’s been an uneventful week for me (which isn’t a bad thing). I’m on track with all of my projects which is an awesome feeling. Now that it’s light for a long time, I’m finding it difficult to go to sleep. I feel like I could like I could go non-stop…maybe that is why I’m on track!
This week I’ve been:
Reading – I just started “Jacob’s Folly” by Rebecca Miller (Arthur Miller’s gorgeous daughter). I went to this book reading in March and I’m just now getting around to reading this.
Eating/Drinking – I haven’t really felt that great this week and I haven’t felt like eating. Which is a big deal for a gourmand like myself! I’ve been living on cheap prosecco. (Geez, I should write an autobiographical essay with that title).
Watching – I re-watched “Serial Mom“ for the millionth time. I mean it has Patty Hearst, L7 and Kathleen Turner all in the same movie.
Listening – Cibo Matto like it is 1997 or something.
Wearing – Mod liner and pale lips, a variation of the look in this post. I want mod hair that looks like a helmet in a Roger Vadim sci-fi flick. As far as fragrance, I’ve been craving heliotrope. And if it were up to me, I’d be covered in Jar Jarling but it’s not up to me. It’s up to my budget. So, I’ve been wearing Etro Heliotrope.
