brigitte bardot, french actress, sex symbol of the 60s
For the Brigitte Bardot look, for the eyes, I brushed gray eyeshadow on the lids, then black eyeshadow on the crease which I smudged slightly. First thing that comes to mind if Brigitte Bardot, is the eyeliner, there should always be a winged effect or what we call "bardot", and should be put thickly. Here, I used Laura Mercier ebony caviar cream eyeliner thickly on the upper and lower rims. To highlight the eyes even more, I brushed white shimmery eyeshadow on the brow bone. For the cheeks, I slightly used an orangey blush. For the eyeshadow and blush, I used the Sephora makeup kit. For the lips, I needed something really nude lip color, since I only have Honolulu Honey from NARS, which is not so nude, I decided to put concealer on her to get the nude effect that I want, here I used NARS concealer in Ginger, top with Laura Mercier lip glace in Crystal. Lastly, put falsies and lots and lots of black mascara for both upper and lower lashes to emphasize the eyes more.
For the hair, I didn't put any products, I just curled her section by section. Curling away from her face. To be more with the 60s era, I used my red and white striped head band on her to finish the look.

1970s is usually more of natural glowing look, the difference from 60s to 70s is not so much of the eyeliner. For the eyes, I used more natural color eyeshadows. For the lids, I swept a beige matte eyeshadow, then I put Laura Mercier ebony caviar cream eyeliner and did the winged effect on the rims, this time not as thick as the 1960s. Lastly for the eyes, I used golden beige shimmery eye shadow at the inner corners. For the cheeks, I used pink blush under the cheek bones. The lips, I wanted to use a very light pink, to highlight the lips, I used MAC's Pink Noveau then I dabbed white gold eyeshadow from Laura Mercier and finish off with Laura Mercier's Crystal lip glace.
For the hair, I curled the lower part of her hair just to give her a softer look. To finish this 1970s look I used my bandanna and wrapped around her head for the flower power look!
