Over the summer months I managed to complete three summer looks to go with the DIY seashell headband. Ideal for the beach or a summer event, this hippy accessory has been great to reinvent the looks of the sixties.
In the three looks I managed to imitate, I was able to capture the different makeup trends of the era based on the type of event suitable for the accessory and look. For the first look, I did a mod makeup eye with shades of purple and a side pony tail of textured braided hair. This look is great for a night out on the town for when you want to stand out and incorporate the bright colors of the sunset.
The second look which involves a DIY hair product recipe is all about embracing one’s natural beauty. This recipe is great to have on hand after a day at the beach for when you want to keep those natural hippy hair waves. It’s also great for a hot day when you just don’t wanna deal with putting time into stylin’ all that hair. The makeup for this look is simple: mascara, a little bronzer, blush and some lip gloss.
Now for look three – I save the best for last. My favorite sixties look is what I call the Brigitte Bardot look. It includes voluminous teased and curled hair, black eyeliner and a nude lipstick. This look is great; simple, but eye catching. As summer comes to a close, I thought this final look would be great for Halloween inspiration for anyone out there who wants to go for a retro costume! The steps below will teach you how to achieve the lipstick for this vintage look using everyday makeup products.
