The mod look, as it was called, was comprised of thick eyelashes, eye liner, layered eye shadow, and a nude lip. This look is still seen and is still worn today in various ways on celebrities and the average woman.

Face:

This should be a natural look. Apply concealer on parts you want to cover up and, if you must, use sheer foundation all over your face, but apply sparingly. You can add blush, but it's not essential to this look. Make sure to use a pale color, such as baby pink or light peach.

Eyes:

Put a neutral color of eyeshadow on your eyelid. Then take a dark color, such as brown, black, or gray, and sweep it across the part of your eyelid where your eye meets the bone. Take a brown or black eyeliner; a pencil or liquid will do. Start either on the inner or outer corner of the eye. Create a thick line (but not too thick) and make the corners go slightly up and away from your eye. You can then attach false eyelashes or just apply a few coats of mascara thickly on the top and bottom lashes. If you want a simple look, then cut a third of the top fake lashes off and attach them to the outer corner. Remember to add mascara after you apply lashes.

Lips:

If your lips are very pink, then put some concealer over them to make them more pale. Then apply a pale pink, peach, or clear gloss. You can define your lips more if you wish by using a lip pencil. This can be white, flesh-colored, or the same color as your lip gloss.


Now you have your 60's inspired look! Peace!

      f: I've never heard of that before. It's possible, but I don't think it's probable.

      How many women remove their natural eyelashes to help the false ones fit better, and do you think this is a trend that could increase?

      Loved your hub. I actually love wearing that style of eye makeup except for the false lashes..I don't wear them only because I don't want to pullout my own lashes.

      Enjoyed your hub. In the 60s we also wore white lipstick. I have a picture of me with the white on, it looks terrible and it was on my military ID card. Voted Up.

      Yes, you seem somewhat of a fashionista, and you need to pursue your own tastes calmly and boldly, without other ppl busying themselves as to what they want you to do.

      Blessings.

      Yes, I don't like popular things just because everyone else likes them. I like what I like; no matter what.

    • profile image

      7 years ago

      Yes. I was referring to ppl in your small town, actually, but what you say is true.

      I think in your case you are probably more generally interested in tattoos from an art form perspective, than just to follow a crowd, to follow a trend.

      Blessings.

      As with many trends, change is unevitable and popularity may increase with any particular one. Yes, I realize that are many people that have tattoos all around the world.

      I think you mentioned anyway that ladies with ear plugs are quite scarce in your town, didn't you. But this may change, of course. (You'll probably find that more are tattooed than you realize.)

      Blessings.

      Erin Bower 

      7 years ago from Georgia

      Yes, you are right.

      You are correct. At least, right now, I'm different from most people in my small town :) (I would hope; I like being different and original)

    • profile image

      7 years ago

      Yes indeed. (The media are the biggest culprits in this regard, I think.)

      With regard to fashion, I think you with your interest in fashion can just be quietly confident that, even if some ppl think your fashion choices (colors, designs, gauges etc) are new and different, in the long term they are far less likely to be seen in that light.

      Blessings.

      That's true. It fascinates me all people of today put their own spin on the things from the past.

    • profile image

      7 years ago

      So I guess that if you make fashion a deeper, special study than even you already have (even with regard to jewelry, body art, etc), it's themes from the PAST that you'll see recurring again and again, won't you? Blessings.

      It's the Ecclesiastes theme again of nothing under the sun being new :) .

      Just like people think the trends of today are very 'new' when they are actually a revamped version of 'old'. Today's version will someday become 'old'. We never think what we are wearing today will someday become ancient history.

      Interestingly, even the notion of 'vintage 60s' is now different from how it would have been seen in those times, an era in fashion and music which sometimes was purported to be a celebration of 'newness' and a supposed 'break' from the past. People in 1965 would have been amused to think that eventually others would regard the styles of those days as 'vintage', but it's true! :)

      Blessings.

      Love your hubs. Of course, I love anything vintage. The Audrey Hepburn pictures really took me back. Breakfast at Tiffany's, I loved that movie the first time I saw it as a teenager.
