Famous for her overhaul of beauty and fashion notions during the 1960s, it’s fair to say that Lesley Lawson (more commonly known as Twiggy) was a bit of a big deal. An English singer, model and actress, she developed her nickname on account of her slim frame. In stark contrast to the voluptuous and curvy models of the 50s, Twiggy made androgynous cool. Our recent Beauty Through The Ages infographic  highlights some of the iconic looks and products since the 1920s and Twiggy embodies the 60s perfectly. Follow these tips to recreate her infamous look for yourself.

  • Recreating the Twiggy lookEyes

Famous for her mod eyes, Twiggy was often seen sporting super long lashes and a wide-eyed look. Recreate it yourself with extra-long false lashes, lashings of mascara and a sweep of black eyeliner across your upper eyelid. Use a white eyeliner pencil for the inner corners of your eyes and your lower lids to make your eyes pop.

  • Skin

As a model, Twiggy had to maintain a healthy, flawless complexion at all times. For glowing skin, maintain a proper Skin Care regime. Cleanse, tone and moisturise day and night for best results – our online shop is bursting with products to keep your complexion smooth and clear.

  • Base Makeup

Twiggy often allowed her notorious freckles shine through – a look that’s coming back in trend this year. Bare your beautiful skin with minimal base makeup – simply add a dab of blusher to each cheek and blend well.

  • Hair

Back in the 60s, Twiggy’s hair was in the style of an androgynous bob. You don’t have to cut off your long tresses to copy this – simply gather your hair into a tight ponytail and smooth down flyaways. Keep it in place all day long with a spritz of hairspray
