he cat eye look for eyes of the 1950s disappeared and emphasis was once again placed on the lashes. The 1960s was the first ‘retro’ decade with styles in both clothes and makeup being inspired by the 1920s, with an added 'modern' approach. Lips were pale to help emphasize eyes, and false lashes became extremely popular, being placed on both the top and bottom lashes for a dramatic effect.

This was the first era when lips truly took second place to eyes. For the modern look, exaggerate the eyes for the doe-eyed look with false eyelashes and heavy lashings of mascara - top and bottom as seen on the runways at Yves Saint Laurent.
