Glittery Gold 60s look

Tuesday, 11 January 2011

I've been wanting to do a 60s look for a while now and was inspired by a friend on a makeup counter who regularly does a 60s style, but with different coloured glitter.
I decided to make use of my MUA glitter eyeliner, after Pixiwoo's recommendation here.

I also acquired a Girls Aloud eyelash set in the boxing day sales which was half price (£12). The set included all 5 original Girls Aloud eyelashes, a concealer, eyeliner and blush brush, all in a wrap holder:

Here's a full list if products used:

> UD Ink for Eyes in Zero (sorry forgot to add to pic!)
> UD 24/7 eyeliner in El Dorado
> Barry M eyeliner in White/ 30
> MUA glitter eyeliner in Shade 2 (gold)
> Dior Iconic mascara (for bottom lashes)
> MAC select moisturecover concealer in NC35
> Eylure Girls Aloud false eyelashes in Kimberley
> Sleek blush in Sunrise
> Elf lipgloss in Honey

To start, I lined the bottom waterline with Barry M white eyeliner, followed by UD El Dorado on top of the white. For the top eyelid I used UD Ink for Eyes for a thick top liner, then also drew a line in the crease with the same liner, but not joining the top liner to it, so that it's a single line in the crease only. The crease line can be as thick as you like, but I decided to make it fairly thick for a full on dramatic look. I used the Ink for Eyes very lightly under the white/El Dorado line on the bottom lash line also. I then added the MUA glitter eyeliner in between the top liner and crease line, filling in the full space from inner corner to outer corner of the eyelid. For the lashes I used Dior Iconic for the bottom lashes as its not as big in brush size as the others; for the top lashes I used the Girls Aloud Kimberley lashes.

For the rest of the face I used Sleek Sunrise blush on the cheeks and Elf lipgloss in Honey:
