More of the 1960’s: Get the Makeup Look of Tina Aumont

1960's Makeup look of Tina Aumont

Tina is so young here! She has to be under 20 in this picture. She grew up fast, getting married at 17. Anyways, I like this look. It’s seem to be what people are going for these days. This look works for most people, but I do think it does look the best on complexion similar to Tina’s. Here’s what I did to achieve a modern day version of Tina’s look:

Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner in Endless Review

 

Milani Infinite Liquid Eye Liner is a long-wearing liquid eyeliner that comes in 5 shades. Milani claims that this liquid liner is semi-permanent (lasting up to 24 hours of wear), waterproof, and smudge and smear proof. Milani’s claims are true. I am reviewing the purple shade above, Endless.
