Loving 60s Mod Makeup and The Cut Crease!

Think Twiggy.

And just LOOK at how amazing it looks! Mod style makeup and cut creases are just amazing.
I've hesitated from doing one because I don't think I have the makeup skills yet, and I worry that it'll just look like I don't know how to blend my makeup, lol! But really, the more I look at it, I think my makeup base is kind of similar to this - I've always lined my bottom line & put mascara on my bottom lashes!

So many styles!

I came across this pic of a magazine article about the kinds of cut creases you can pull off, and I think they're all pretty groovy!

What makes up a mod look?

- Bare lips, often covered with foundation
- Otherwise, nothing too bold on the lips
- ALL the focus on the eyes!
- Mascara is a MUST - letting lashes clump up like false eyelashes (or just wearing falsies!) is a MUST too!
- Dark crease line was left as a sharp definite line – it wasn’t blended or smudged at all – and was applied in an arch from inner eye to outer eye.
- Eye makeup was heavy, harsh almost - and that's where the cut crease comes in!
- Bold geometric patterns and black and white
- Dark eyeliner alllll over the place!
- It's all about the DRAMA!

The Lashes MATTERED!

I feel like it's less common for people who aren't makeup gurus to wear falsies on the regular, but I actually love wearing them! I only really put them on for cosplay makeup or when I really need a dramatic look for an even, but wearing them daily would be so fun (and a ton of work, but I feel like it would get easier!)
I would LOVE to see cut creases that have some more attitude & drama to them coming back a little bit! Of course our current day darker crease looks actually come from the cut crease (this really wasn't done before then!) but still, I love the more definite lines.

I'm gonna try these tutorials out this weekend as a start ^^

Pair this with @HairConfetti's beehive hair & you've got a full 60s look!! ;)

Twiggy is gorgeous!!! I wish I had fuller lashes to rock this look. There's always falsies but it takes so much more effort to get them on!

@HairConfetti Yeah, totally agree, they take so much work haha. I like wearing falsies but I am lucky enough to have a ton of lashes without them too.

I used to do this kind of makeup all the time in middle school, like I used to draw the little lines under my eyes all the time! Named my cat after Twiggy she is such an incredible super model!

@TessStevens That's awesome hahaha!! I have pretty thick lower lashes too so i have always kind of piled on the mascara and gotten a verrrryyyyy toned down version of this. My mom does the same, so I never realized that a lot of people don't do so XD I love teh look of it, though!
