Impossibly, we’re two thirds through the current season of AMC’s Mad Men
and have yet to post anything trend-worthy related to the show. So, here goes: Retro 60s Winged Eyeliner. Is there a female character not wearing this look on the show this season? Of course not. It was a huge trend in 60s makeup: A line of liquid liner slicked across the top lid, beginning fine in the inner corner then getting thicker towards the outer edge of the eye. Or, a medium line with a graceful flick on the end. Either way, the look was sophisticated—and sexy. The effect is easily replicated today—and with better makeup to boot. Take Pür Minerals Pür Intensity Liquid Eyeliner
, for example. Combining the precision of a liquid eyeliner and the ease of a gel formulation, this gel liner (in two modern hues) delivers a bold but elegant eye effect. And the smudge-proof formula glides on smooth and lasts all day without fading or creasing, which is a good thing, because no matter the era, women want their makeup to look great and last all day long.
