Becoming More Like Twiggy


photo source Nineteen Eighty

The quintessential icon of 60s fashion, Twiggy, turned 62 a couple of days ago. She was born Lesley Hornby in England, and quickly acquired the nickname "Twigs" because of her thin frame.

Twiggy popularized the androgynous look, and turned heads with her gorgeous doe-like eyes. Only Twiggy herself would do her eye make-up, which consisted of decorating her eyes with what would be dubbed "Twiggy lashes" - painted lines that looked like eyelashes.

In honor of her birthday, I did my best to emulate Twiggy's famous makeup.

♥, Kailey
