Get the Beauty Look: 60’s Brit Girl trend

Eyes – Create Contour

To create a cool sixties eye, start by applying an eye primer such as Dainty Doll Eyeshadow Base Frankie Girl. Next take the flesh toned shadow from Rimmel Traffic Stopping Eye Shadow – Over the limit and sweep over the entire lid. To create the deep contour take a small round shaped eyeshadow brush and with the brown shadow trace the colour backwards and forwards into your socket. Wing out the contour for a feline look – miaow!!

Lashes – Fake a flutter

Before applying mascara, trim your Eylure Girls Aloud Lashes – Cheryl to fit the length of your eyes. Wait for the glue to go tacky, then push on the lashes – centre first then outer and inner ends. Apply YSL Volume False Lash Effect Black Mascara to blend in your own lashes with the fakes, then disguise the join with a think slick of Rimmel Gel Eyeliner in black.

Nails – Pale Nail

File your nails before applying Nicole by OPI Kardashian It’s all about the Glam – pale is definitely more interesting!

Skin – Fresh and Flawless

Prime your skin with Daniel Sandler Retexturizing face primer to keep your foundation lasting throughout the day. For flawless skin apply Dainty Doll mineral powder foundation and try ‘buffing’ the product afterwards with the applicator brush, this will give a polished fresh look to your skin.

Lip – Lovely Lilac

Keep your lip retro with a pale colour, but add an edge by going for a lilac tone such as Barry M lip paint – Palest Lavender.

Hair – Big ‘n’ Backcombed

Part your hair on the side and take the top section leaving some out at the front and the back section loose. Backcomb the top section and smooth into a beehive. Pin at the back and spray your hands with hairspray. Next rub them over the beehive to create fly-aways and a modern undone look.

And there you have it – the perfect 1960’s Brit Girl look!
