“Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.”
Or some kick-ass false eyelashes, in this case. For a long time I wanted to do a 60's inspired photo shoot and finally I had the chance to do it thanks to Miruna and Adina. The pictures will be up soon, but before that I wanted to show you guys a sneak peek.
I also did some research on cosmetics. You all know Twiggy made the childish and boyish look popular by wearing a pale make-up and short hair. What were essential for this look? False eyelashes! The more, the better. I discovered the first ones were created in 1916 for an American actress, Seena Owen. Apparently the movie director D.W. Griffith, wanted her to have an extraordinary look. A wig-maker created the first falsies, so long that they touched her cheeks when she was blinking. However, only some decades later these became a fashion essential. Twiggy, Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor are just a few of the stars who helped making them popular.
Stick around to see the stunning editorial!
