Sixties Beauty Is Back With Statement Lashes Leading The Way


Dior Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear.

The 60s are officially back and in full swing. The return, cemented by Dior’s creative and image director for makeup, Peter Philips meticulously painting individual lashes below models waterlines, for the Parisian labels Fall 2019 show. Having previously been spotted, of note on Prada’s Spring 2019 runway and in its campaign featuring Gigi Hadid, which saw makeup artist Pat McGrath champion Twiggy-esque lashes, the look has become a firm favorite on this seasons runways.

NYFW was first up. Models at Brandon Maxwell’s Fall 2019 show had false lashes applied and coats of jet black mascara layered on top, a look created by makeup artist Tom Pecheux. McGrath at both Anna Sui and Tomo Koizumi’s shows worked her way through countless tubes of mascara for a bold effect, both reminiscent of the 60s, but with a modern feel. Eyebrows this season are taking a back seat.

Backstage at Dior, Philips was heard referencing 60s style and London street culture. Writing on his Instagram Philips explained, “For the fall 2019 show we went for a 60’s mod/Teddy girl inspired graphic eye-look. Natural skin using Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation and a touch of Dior Backstage Glowpowder. Luminous lips using the new Dior Addict Stellar Shine in ‘Mirage’ and a strong graphic eye using Dior Onstage Liner in Matte Black and Diorshow Pump’n’Volume mascara 090.”
