How To Do Twiggy's Makeup and Hair for Halloween

Halloween How-To: Twiggy

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.

Makeup:

  • 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.

Hair:
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.
