Swingin’ ’60s Hair and Makeup Tutorial
1. After applying base makeup (We used The POREfessional all over the face followed by Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! foundation, Boi-ing concealer, and finished off with Hello Flawless! finishing powder), apply CORALista blush to the apples of your cheeks. Highlight your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, cupids bow and chin with Moon Beam highlighter.
2. For your eyes, use the Smokin’ Eyes brow and eye makeover kit. Start by applying the pink highlight shadow all over the lid followed by Eye Bright on the brow bone. Use the deep charcoal shadow in the outside crease of your lids and in the outer corner of your lash line. Blend the pewter base shadow in the middle of your lid.
3. Apply the smokin’ liner — from the brow and eye makeover kit — to the top of your lid and in your waterline. Don’t forget to blend, blend, blend!
4. Finish the eyes with two (or three) coats of BADGal Lash Mascara in Black.
5. Complete your look with Hydra-Smooth Lip Color in Air Kiss.
6. Section off your hair into two parts, from ear to ear. Back comb the back half of your hair using a fine-tooth comb and smooth out the top with a paddle brush for a subtle sixties pouf!
