Trends always have a way of making a comeback, whether it is in fashion or beauty. Now, it seems like makeup looks from a particular era are all set to take over 2021 in full swing. We’re talking about beauty looks from the ‘60s. Many famous names like Ariana Grande and Kaia Gerber have already tapped into this new trend by embracing the MOD cat-eye looks and it gets a seal of approval from us!

Taking inspiration from the OGs of MOD makeup, a.k.a Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton, these looks started way back in the ‘60s and those who considered themselves a modernist used these looks as a way to start a whole new revolution through their crazy makeup looks and bohemian trends. While in today’s world no one is using it to start a revolution, it does help create good content for your Insta feed. If you want to get on board with the swinging ‘60s beauty looks, here are a few you can recreate and look a la mode in your pictures and at any party.

Twiggy Eyelashes

Twiggy lashes were a hit back in the ‘60s and now they are in vogue once again. So, what are twiggy lashes? Well, it’s pretty simple. It’s all about applying generous layers of mascara on both your upper and lower lashes until they are thick. If you plan on copying this, don’t forget to use a lash primer before coating your lashes with the black mascara. 

The Graphic Winged Eyeliner

Ariana Grande recently debuted the Mod cat-eye in her ‘Positions’ music video and we’re loving it! Instead of drawing on your regular cat-eye, this eye makeup look is all about drawing on a fierce eyeliner along with a cut crease eyeshadow, and thick, voluminous lashes.

The Pixie Haircut

Twiggy was a style icon of her time. Aside from her iconic eyelashes, people are also opting for her pixie haircut. In 2021, it is predicted that this hairstyle is going to be all over your social feed, with many opting to go short by chopping off their long locks to add a bit more edge to their look. 

Ballerina Lips

The frosted ballerina lips are all set to take over 2021. This look involves using a frosted pink lipstick to create pouty lips and pairing it with thick cat eyeliner, long ashes, and plenty of bronzer.

Sultry ‘60s Makeup

You can thank actress Sophia Loren for this makeup look. If you are looking to up your oomph factor, then a red lipstick paired with smoky eyes, and defined brows are the sexy ‘60s makeup inspiration you need.
