LovelySkin blog: Halloween Twiggy

Twiggy, a British model who was famous for her mod style and makeup, became the face of the swinging 1960s. This Halloween, go retro-chic with our Twiggy makeup! You can create this simple look using products that you already have at home. It’s a perfect last-minute Halloween costume.

Apply your favorite foundation with a light to medium amount of coverage. Twiggy’s freckles were well-known, so it’s now time to show them off! To get a sheer, even application, we used Jane Iredale PurePressed Base 20 Natural.

Then, move onto the eyes. To minimize discoloration, apply a light eye shadow shade such as a nude shade or a light gray shade like the lightest shade from Jane Iredale PurePressed triple eye shadow- Silver Lining on your entire eyelid. Apply a dark pewter or brown eye shadow in the crease of the eye, working from the inner corner outward. It may seem counterintuitive, but do not blend. Twiggy made her name with this cut-crease and harsh-lined-eye look.

You can create a small wing by using a liquid black eyeliner and flicking it out at the end. You can achieve bold colors with a felt-tipped eyeliner such as Mirabella Magic Marker. Curl your lashes, then apply two coats of your favorite volumizing eyelash mascara. bareMinerals Intense black Lash Domination is one of the favorites. False lashes are a great way to give your lashes a Twiggy look.

Line your waterline using a white pencil such as Jane-Iredale Eye Pencil White. You will get a doe-eyed, wide look. Finally, use a black liquid, gel, or pencil eyeliner to draw thick, black eyelashes along your bottom lashline. For slightly smudged lines, we used Jane Iredale Eye Pencil Basic Black.

Keep the rest of the makeup neutral and simple. The eyes are the focal point of Twiggy’s makeup. For a subtle pop, we used a peach blush to dust on the cheeks. Then we added Jane Iredale PureGloss Lipgloss Soft Peach.

Make a side part in your hair and smooth down any flyaways using a hair gel with maximum hold. Pull the rest of the hair into a low ponytail or bun.

Then, dig into your closet to find your 60s clothing. The key is to wear short, sleeveless dresses, turtlenecks, and clothes with color blocks. You’re now ready to go out and bring back the swinging 1960s!
