Mary Greenwell's Masterclass: Twiggy's Sixties Make-up

October 28th 2013 / 0 comment

Make-up artist Mary Greenwell shows us how to create a modern take on Twiggy's sixties make-up style

In the third of our iconic make-up series (previous videos are The Bardot and the Fabulous Fifties), make-up maestro Mary Greenwell uses Chanel make-up to demonstrate how to recreate a stunning 1960s Twiggy or Mod make-up look.

As with all of Mary’s other iconic creations, the key to making this bold look wearable rather than theatrical is to create a sheer, luminous base that glows from within. As for that instantly recognisable eye with the defined socket line and exaggerated lashes, Mary uses just one black mascara and a black eyeliner to create a fresh, pared down version of the original, heavier look.
