Circa 1964. [x]“If anybody ever wonders what a muse is, it was Pattie Boyd Harrison Clapton. Everyone said she would just walk in a room and everything would stop and every man would just be focused on her energy. And that’s the best definition of a muse I’ve ever heard.” - Ken Dashow (in A&E’s Biography: The Beatles’ Women)
Pattie Boyd modelling fashion for The Beatles’ Apple Boutique
(These names are in no particular order, and are not the only personalities whose style I love from the sixties. Clickable names lead to a video tutorial to recreate a look inspired by the style icon.)
Before going to bed last night, I uploaded another one of my retro-themed makeup tutorials for fellow lovers of vintage style.
This one has a 1960s mod vibe, and it was created with teens and makeup minimalists in mind. It doesn’t take a lot of time nor use a lot of products, although you may have to practice applying false strip lashes beforehand if you’re new to makeup, and want to wear this look to a special event.
Just another idea for a look from decades past. ;)

Taking a quick break from watching the Academy Awards by sharing a celebrity-inspired makeup tutorial with retro style lovers.
These are photos of the look in my how-to video based on Brigitte Bardot’s 1960s makeup. She’s worn even more dramatic eyeliner/eyeshadow than this, which means—yay!—I have more material to work with should I feel like doing another BB tutorial.
I’m off to continue giving the Oscars my full attention for now, but you can click HERE to see the video.
Since I am such a fan of 1960s style (well, I love retro stuff in general, but yes, I especially dig the sixties), I filmed another makeup tutorial with a mod vibe.
This one in particular was created with teens and makeup minimalists in mind; it isn’t very dramatic, so you can recapture the feel of the decade at a costume party or special event without painting your face heavily.
I’ll be back with the link for the video once it’s edited (UPDATE on March 2, 2011: click HERE for the video).
In the meantime, if you’re looking for other 1960s-inspired tutorials, here are a few you might like that I based on popular personalities from back then (click on the name to see the video):
