More 1960’s Fashion – Get the Makeup Look of Nancy Sinatra

Nancy Sinatra

One day this week I woke up wanting to wear Nancy Sinatra makeup. Go figure. I don’t really consider this “everyday” makeup, but it’s fun. And don’t you think that Nancy Sinatra looks like Lady Gaga in this pic? Here’s what I did to get this Nancy Sinatra inspired makeup look. Go-go boots are not included but highly recommended

FACE: I applied Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation in Clair Beige. Under the eyes with a concealer brush, I blended Neutrogena Healthy Skin Smoothing Stick in Fair. With the sponge provided, I applied Lancôme Precise Match Pressed Powder in Medium 10. With a darker contour powder, I contoured down the nose and in the hollows of the cheeks. On the cheek bones, I brushed on NARS Cheek Color in Orgasm, a shimmery peachy-pink.

EYES: This look is all about the brows. Nancy’s brows are filled in and angular shaped. Brush brows in place with a comb. With the brush included, I filled in my brows with Clinique Brow Shaper in Soft Brown. And I exaggerated the “points” of my brows. With a concealer brush, I applied NYX Eye Shadow Base in Skin Tone. For the eyeshadow, I’m using Wet n Wild ColorIcon Trio in Walking on Eggshells. On the lid I applied the “Browbone” shade, an off white shimmer. In the crease, I used “Crease” shade, a warm brown shimmer. I blended with my eyes open. This color “points” at the edge. Take a tissue, hold it at an angle and apply the Crease shade. It will be “sharp” and not blended. Blend this shade in the inner corner down towards the nose. I applied the “Browbone” shade on the bottom lash line towards the nose. I applied “Crease” to the bottom lash line with a slanted liner brush, sweeping outwards. Under the brows, apply the Browbone shade. I lined the upper eyelid with Lancôme Artliner Eyeliner in Noir. I then applied Artliner in the crease. This isn’t easy. I joined the two eyeliner lines in and filled in with the liquid liner. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara to top and bottom lashes. I have no bottom false lashes on hand right now. So, I with a fine art brush, I drew on lashes with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. I applied Ardell False Lashes to top lashes.

LIPS: Directly from the tube, I applied Victoria’s Secret VS Perfect Lipstick in Whisper, a sheer peachy-nude shimmer.

Nancy Sinatra Makeup Look

The crummy Seattle monsoon season has hit. I can’t get a good makeup pic without converting a room to a photo studio and that isn’t happening. So, I tried my best to get a pic of this look. My eyes aren’t like Nancy’s. But, I thought it ended up merely OK.

For a fragrance, I went with Estee Lauder Aliage.

What are your weekend plans? I’m actually going to an impromptu “mini” fragrance meetup in Portland tomorrow. That should be fun. Have a great weekend!

  1. The makeup turned out great! I like how it’s “natural”. The way you did it turned out softer, as I think Nancy has some black shadow on the outer lid and the liner in the inner corners are exaggerated. I like your version more.

    This weekend, I’ll be studying for finals, then taking one of them tomorrow, then studying for my other one which I take on Monday. I won’t be having any fun, but I’ll be productive.
