Miss Jones steps into the Sixties...

My absolute favourite era of all time is the swinging sixties. I love the music, the fashion and most definitely the make up! I have mentioned before that I adore the looks that Twiggy and the likes of Edie Sedgewick favoured, so of course I had to share with you my version of the 'Twiggy' look.

This is a more wearable version, if you were really going for it then I would recommend applying false lashes to the bottom as well as the top for a true 'doe eyed look'.

This is a look which I often wear for a night out, I love it because it breaks all of the traditional beauty rules. Skin should look matte, eyes should verge on looking chalky, lips very pale and of course the all important black shadow is NOT I repeat NOT blended! Blending the shadow would just result in your classic smokey eye...not what we are going for on this occasion.

So here it is poppets...I was going to go all out and don the Breton stripe and chandelier earrings but I just settled for pinning my hair into a boy like style....(Mental note Miss Jones do not cut hair a la Twiggy chic crop as you will look like a fool!)

Cringeworthy shots done!

The look is really simple to do the key things to remember are that all products should be matte, brows and skin is left neutral, lips pale pale pale and of course all emphasis is on them peepers. The black arch should sit just above your natural socket line, also a white liner on the waterline is essential to get that wide eyed look.

I used my sleek palette which I recommend everyone get if you do not already have because they are fabulous! The colour pay off, the shades and the value for money can not be beaten by any other drugstore eye shadow range! This is the original palette (as you can see it is well used)..

All of the colours have shimmer in them apart from the black which is a matte hence ideal for this look. I also used my Zara vanilla all over the lid up to the brow. Lashes were style 113 by Dimples (fabulous lashes and cheap!), finally I used a concealer on my lips mixed with a balm because I have lost my favourite ultra ultra nude lipstick. So hardly any products at all...not like me!

Does anyone else have a favourite era they appreciate with regards to make up?
