Twiggy, the English fashion model, is synonymous with the swinging sixties, and remembered for her A line dresses, short boyish bob and over-exaggerated “twiggies” eyelashes. Her look was so iconic, I was desperate to try and recreate those infamous doll-like eyes using Eylure’s upper and lower lashes duo. I received these at the recent event I attended and knew I had to give them a whirl. I used a Pixiwoo Twiggy makeup tutorial to help give me an idea on how to do my makeup, which I clumsily tried to follow using most of the same products. Her makeup was always quite simple, letting her famous freckles show through, but with the emphasis on the eyes, with a heavily defined crease, a light bronzing and a nude lip.
These lashes are truly amazing, if not a little fiddly to apply. I had never used lower lashes before so didn’t know how well I’d fare. You have to make sure they go under your bottom lashes, as close to the waterline as possible. I tilted my head back and used tweezers to navigate them into position. They weren’t quite as perfectly placed as I would have liked them, but they sufficed. They just scream sixties wide-eyed beauty, and I love them!
If you want to flirt with some seriously sixties-inspired lashes, I would recommend giving these a go.
Would you trial this Twiggy look?
