Get the Look: 60s Mod Squad


If the timeless looks of 1960s scenesters like Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick have long been your ultimate style envies, then the spring 2013 catwalk is your go-to source of inspiration this season. Top designers such as Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs used the glamour of the decade as the prime influence of their shows, focusing their pieces around mod classics like checkerboard patterns, standout stripes, boxy silhouettes, and sophisticated swing coats. What caught our attention most, though, was the nostalgia-provoking beauty, from bold brows to nude pouts, that went along with them. In tune with the mod makeup of the ’60s, eyes were the focus on Vuitton and Jacobs runways. To get the lustworthy look yourself, begin by painting lids with a creamy white to pale blush color containing a bit of sheen. Next, line your upper lid with black eyeliner, extending it past your eye in a dramatic wing shape. As thick, graphic liner is the focus of mod-inspired makeup, it’s important to choose a product that will nail the look perfectly. Go with a glossy liquid like the Maybelline Duo Eyeliner for the most precise line. The outstanding product features a delicate brush, that depending on the side that you use (thinner or thicker), creates a thin or thick line with a twist of the wrist. You can use the flat disk pencil for your lid and the thinner for your inner eye. To finish off those peepers, flirty doll-like eyelashes are a must. Apply mascara on the top and bottom—and don’t hesitate to make it clumpy for extra drama.
