1960's Beach Bombshell

One of my favourite periods for makeup is the 1960's, where the eyes were big, the hair was bigger, and the complexion was flawlessly matte. Here I took inspiration from the beachy bombshells of the 60's and kept the look modern with glossy touches on the lips and cheeks.

Pro Tip
Use a thick eyeliner brush and light shadow to map out your shape before committing to a strong cut crease. When you're happy with the placement and symmetry, build the intensity of your colour slowly by using consistent pressure and small strokes.
