A glowing, radiant Emily DiDonato.
Winged eyeliner, fluttery eyelashes, nude lipsticks, divisive hair-dos and Twiggy; it was called Swinging Sixties for a reason.
Fashion’s obsession with the past decades is not a new concept. Drawing inspiration from former years is a must and this trend isn’t anticipating abatement just yet. As a result of which, the flirtatious graphics and feminine silhouettes of the sixties have baited numerous designers’ upcoming collections for spring 2012.
Minimalistic classicism is now being served with an innovative and modern twist. If you haven’t checked out our detailed trend report about 1960s fashion, then follow that link to read it all. But this month, Fashionising.com is celebrating make-up in all its glory, so it’s only fair to put the overstated eyelashes back in the limelight for maximum admiration from you.
This 1970s-inspired look is super-sexy and fun for the holidays. Dramatic lashes and a bronzed finish amp up the bombshell glamour for maximum impact. Get the look with tips from Maybelline New York Global Makeup Artist, Charlotte Willer:
EYES: To get a super-sultry look, start by sweeping the lighter shade of Expert Wear Eyeshadow Duo in Grey Matters onto lids, beginning at the inner corner of your eye and working your way out. Blend color at the edges for a soft, smoky effect. Next, apply Master Drama Cream Pencil. Start at the inner corner and follow the contour of the eye, lining both upper and lower lash lines.
FACE: Add a bombshell glow with Fit Me! Bronzer. Apply bronzer onto the apples of your cheeks, sweeping upward. Apply to forehead, bridge of the nose and anywhere you want a flawless, healthy glow.
LASHES: Plump up your lashes with several coats of Volum’ Express Falsies Mascara. Take the wand to the root of your lashes and sweep through to the tip.
LIPS: A golden, pearly lip will provide the perfect finish. Glide on Color Sensational Pearls Lipcolor in Sparkling Sand directly from the tube, starting at the center of your upper lip and working towards outer edge. Repeat on bottom lip and use your fingertip to blend color for a soft look.

So when we had questions about how to achieve this season’s new smoky eye, (like the one we saw on Amber Heard at Trevor Live Sunday night), calling Amy seemed like the smartest thing to do. She gave us some new color combos to work with, plus shared her suggestions for a perfect holiday party look…
Can you explain how the smoky eye trend has changed?
“The traditional smoky eye has been updated by changing the typical color scheme of grays and blacks with coppers, bronzes, metallic silvers and purples—as well as intensified by rimming the inner waterline with a black liner. And instead of using a black kohl or kajal liner, rim it with a longwear liner so it doesn’t disappear in an hour. Liners have come a looooong way thanks to technology, so upgrade now!
What’s your top holiday beauty tip this season?
“Glitter eyes plus a red lip never fails to make a beautiful and festive statement at a holiday party!”
What type of makeup trends do you think we’ll see on the Grammys red carpet this year?
“With a lot of stars rocking fun hair colors like pink and blue, expect softer color ways like pastels anchored with a black winged liner.”
Is it the sort of thing people can try at home?
“It absolutely can be done at home!”
Who are you excited to see on the GRAMMYS red carpet?
