Hey There, Twiggy

It seems that sixties chic is not only a common theme in terms of clothing this fall, but it appears to be a major beauty trend, as well. Many a designer sent models stomping down the runway sporting variations of the unmistakable “Twiggy look”. The exaggerated, doll-like lashes were made popular in the late sixties by the leggy British model and have since become among the most iconic makeup looks of all time.

Some designers, like Gucci and Rochas, fully embraced the retro look, and had their models sporting classic, full-blown Twiggy lashes (see above). Others, however, just had to give it their own spin. The makeup artists behind the scenes at Prada crafted a clump, slept-in looking version of the look, while Saint Laurent upped the edge factor while pairing the already-dramatic lashes with graphic black liner.

What are your thoughts on the revisiting to the Twiggy look? Will you try it for yourself?
