1960's Inspired Hair and Makeup Tutorial

Hello everyone! I'm back and excited to bring y'all one of my 1960s vintage inspired hair and makeup looks that I have created -- perfect for either everyday wear, or for any costume party you may have coming up.

This makeup and hair look was inspired by the early sixties. You can find a similar makeup look in The Help, Mad Men, The Dick Van Dyke Show, or on Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. 

The key to this look is simplicity. Do a defined eye with neutral eye shadows (don't forget to do the cat eye!). A fresh face with some light pink blusher. For the lips, do a light 60s pink lipstick -- my favorite lipstick for this era is Revlon's "Pink in the Afternoon". 

The hairstyle is very modern meets early 60s, but it works. Just straighten your hair and flip your ends up. If you have bangs, just pin them to the side with either a small bow or bobby pins. You can finish off the look by spraying hairspray all over your hairdo. I didn't do hairspray in the video because I had filmed this at the end of day, and I didn't want hairspray hair the next day. :p

If you would like to see more of me, I'm on: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Thanks Ashley! I am loving that cat eye look. Thanks for sharing your stellar tutorial! See more posts from Ashley HERE and find more video tutorials HERE.
