Makeup History - 1960's

Not sure what the 1960's beauty represented? Think Twiggy, think doe eyes, think dramatic eyes.

Eyes were the focus with pale, often white, pastel blue or green eyeshadows finished with a dark drawn on socket line and eyeliner. They were then dramatised with heavy false lashes on the top lids, and drawn on individual lashes on the bottom of the eye.
Cheeks were quite contoured and a sculptured blush was applied. To further accentuate the cheekbones a highlighter was used on the top bones of the cheek. 
To compliment the dark contoured eyes, lips were often quite pale and sometimes even shimmery.
