Back in the 60s, Twiggy was known for her pin-thin frame and gamine style. Named "The Face of '66" by The Daily Express, this beauty icon made pale lipstick and penciled-in long lashes the epitome of mod fashion.
I'm loving Fab's grooved-out costume ideas, and I've got some great tips on how to recreate her distinctive, slightly androgynous hair and makeup. Carnaby Street, here you come! Check out my how-to below, along with a widget filled with color suggestions so that you can transform into this supermodel with ease.
- Complexion — Keep the foundation light, letting your freckles shine through. Don't have any? Lightly dot on with an eyeliner, lip liner, or brow pencil in an auburn shade.

- Eyes — Apply a pale, matte shadow to the lids. Next, add some false lashes to your top lashline. If you need a refresher, check out my video for some tips. Follow with a sweep of black liquid liner on the top lashline, increasing in thickness at the outer corners. Coat your lashes with several generous applications of mascara. Tip: let mascara dry in between layers, and carefully use a tweezer to clump lashes together for that spidery look. Instead of applying liner or mascara to bottom lashes, draw in fake lashes with black liquid liner.
- Lips and Cheeks — Keep it simple with pale pinks or nudes.
Twiggy's trademark was her sleek, blonde pixie, which was parted heavily to one side. Don't forget to tease at the crown for maximum oomph.
