Makeup 

“This is all about a modern 60s eye. It’s not your traditional, super model reference. It’s more 60s noir, Sharon Tate. Lots of black eye liner and tons of lashes with completely raw lips and skin. Because of the matte skin, we’re using an eyeliner (MAC Slickline) that dries like vinyl so you’ll see a flash under the lights when the girls blink. It gives great textural contrast between the matte skin and slick eye. We’re doubling down on the lashes. We’re using the most dramatic lashes MAC offers. Its a nice topper to the liner. It’s big girl makeup so its big girl lashes. The most amazing thing about 60s eye makeup is how they would play with the line – leave some space under the eye, or leave them disconnected. So, we’re playing with the line here and doing a Minnie Mouse shape under the eye. It’s greased up makeup. Its cool. There’s a confidence that comes with having an eye like this.” – Chantal Miller

HAIR

“The Libertine girl is glam and dressed up and she likes a good party. So the hair is a bit natural, lived in. We’re doing a center part for a flat silhouette on top, like when you just wake up. We’re using Kerastase Lotion Densitive GL for a semi-matte finish and for texture. We’re gently roping the hair around a 1.25″ iron for waves that start at eye/ear level. Its a lean silhouette and its textural.” – Akemi Tamaribuchi

NAILS

“For Libertine, Butter London did a custom bespoke gold polish (upcoming Morbs) which were embellished with cascading crystals down the nail. We were inspired by art, collage of colors embellishment and opulence. So we’re embellishing the nails with the same stones that are encrusted on the clothes. We created a yellow-based gold to mimic liquid gold. ” – Katie Hughes
