There is a Maybelline ad out right now that has a model who looks like a modern take on 60’s icon Twiggy for their Eyestudio Master drama cream pencil ($6). I’ve been so attracted to this look since I’ve seen it in all of my fall fashion magazines, that I just had to give it a try- despite the fact this is NOT an everyday carpool mom look;-)
Dark black liner rimming the eyes is very distinctly retro mod looking. So I could probably work this look for Halloween since it’s sooo dramatic, but then I’d have to lose around 30 pounds to pull off the real Twiggy look, and dye my hair blonde, and chop it off….okay, maybe not a good Halloween choice for me-ha!! Luckily, with this look, I did very minimal makeup on the rest of my face because the eyes are where the attention should be.
So moving on, here is how I recreated this bold black eye makeup look with a few easy steps (and no, I did not use the Maybelline liner for this).
What do you think of the mod eye liner look? Should it stay in the 60’s or be brought back to the present?! Could I wear this to pick up my 3 and 5 year old from school?? Ha!!!!!
