Twiggy the cool chick of ’60s fashion, widely recognized for her androgynous style as well as her famed pixie cut.
Fast-forward close to 50 yrs later and Twiggy is still a significant influence on contemporary beauty styles in the fashion business like the now-popular ‘Twiggy lashes’, as coined by popular beauty blogs.
This is a craze you’ve all possibly seen on social media: neutral eyes with dramatic upper and lower lashes, complemented with natural cosmetics on the other parts of the face.
How to Have Twiggy Lashes
Step 1: After you’ve put on eye primer, apply a thin layer of foundation over your lids to create a flat base.
Step 2: Now mix up a drop of face moisturizer with a generous amount of skin-toned eye-shadow pigment to make a nude-colored cream + use a teaspoon to scrape off your eyeshadow powder onto the palm of your hand.
Step 3: Using a flat eyeshadow brush, put on this cream onto your lids, blending it up to the crease.
Step 4: Using that very same skin-toned eye shadow, add it in its natural powder form over your Do It Yourself cream shadow. Do this stuff using a blending brush.
Twiggy Eyelashes with a Modern Twist
In fashion, we love bringing back old looks with a trendy twist. One of those crazes is Twiggy Lashes! Twiggy is so iconic that you probably have an image in your head of what these lashes look like. It is a bold lower lashline with a light upper lid that provides you a rabbit eyed look.
Twiggy was not only a model in the 1960’s but a TRENDSETTER!
There are endless tutorials on how to do Twiggy lashes from subtle to “can’t take my eyes off you.” We are going to be doing a video tutorial eventually, but for now, enjoy the wide range of variations of this look …
TIP: You can enhance your lashes using either strip lashes or individuals, but for the modern woman, people believe it’s ideal to build up your natural eyelashes using individuals.
TIP: Once you’ve inserted your false lashes, apply mascara.
TIP: Do this using a tiny blending brush and paint the formula onto your lashes. This technique will help you to target every individual lash, allowing you to layer the roots with formula, giving you next-level lash volume. Another blessing from this technique? Much fewer clumps!
TIP: Lash primer is vital. Coat them with your favorite lash primer and follow this up along with three coats of mascara. Position the back of a teaspoon precisely beneath your lower lash line so you can pile on as much formula as you desire without leaving a mess on your under-eye region.
