A makeup artist behind the scenes of the February 2013 F/W Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week show of Boy Meets Girl gives model Cassandra Bankson a mod makeup look.

Something I’ve noticed for a while is that no matter the makeup trend, something is consistent. Black eyeliner and bold, black mascara paired with a red or nude lip NEVER goes out of style.

It’s such a classic look, and I associate it with the 1960s, when models like Twiggy were household names and women paired the beauty look with short skirts and thick headbands.

Rimmel London has always given off a 1960s vibe to me in their commercials and products, and recently, the brand launched the new Scandal Eyes RetroGlam Mascara, meant to evoke that iconic lash look of the 1960s.

I was inspired to have a very “mod” moment of my own on Friday when I put together a look using RetroGlam and other Rimmel ScandalEyes products that the brand recently sent over. I used:

  • ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Paint in Rich Russet, Mercury Rising and Golden Bronze
  • ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner (waterproof)
  • ScandalEyes RetroGlam Mascara in Extreme Black

Also used in my look:

Eyes/under eye:

  • Ofra Cosmetics Eye Gel Primer
  • Lush Cosmetics Feeling Younger Skin Tint

Face:

  • Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse foundation in Light Ivory
  • Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo
  • MAC Cosmetics blush in Stunner

Lips:

  • Lime Crime Velvetine in Suedeberry

Those lashes – KAPOW! I really like this mascara. The Thick & Thin Liner was not as easy to use as other liquid pencil liners I’ve tried, I did have to go over the line a few times. And the Eye Shadow Paint – well, I usually hate creme and pencil shadows but I found these were pretty easy to use, and they stayed put without creasing all day. I would buy more of these, and I would purchase the RetroGlam mascara.

I think what solidified my decision to write a post about the look, vs. reviewing the individual products, was a conversation I had about my makeup the day I wore the look. A coworker complimented my makeup and said it looked very 1960s or classic, and we had a quick chat about the mod, retro makeup look and Rimmel’s new products. So I thought I’d try something a little different and post a look instead!

RetroGlam Mascara can be found where Rimmel is sold – price varies depending on where you buy. It’s available on Walmart.com for $5.47, and CVS.com for $6.99, for example.

So what do you think about this type of look? Do you love it? I think this is a classic go-to look, what about you?! And have you tried this new mascara from Rimmel yet?!
