Simple Mod

Though I love the bold lines and exaggerated lashes prominent in most mod looks, I need a simpler, more wearable look to wear everyday. Using makeup I already have I came up with this simple and still totally mod-feeling face. 
For me, mod = strong eyes and a pale lip. So I drew out a longer wing using gel liner (L'oreal Gel Lacquer) set with the blackest eyeshadow I had (Stiletto from Too Faced). Because I have hooded lids, I drew the wings a lot higher than I usually do as well, so you can still see the liner when I open my eyes really wide. 

For the bottom part of the eyes, I took the black shadow from the top and lined my eyes about 1/4 of the way in. Then, I used a drew a white line with an eye pencil, following the contour of my eyes, starting from the inside and stopped about 3/4 of the way. 

Since my lips are a bit pink, I had to dab some concealer on top before I slathered Bite Beauty's High Pigmented Lip Pencil in Madeira.

  1. Gorgeous, Laura! And I so needed this tutorial because I also have hooded lids and can never do winged liner properly because of it and I've been dreaming of looking very mod because of all the 60s movies I've been ogling. So thank you! Two birds, one stone and all that.

  2. I love it...Mod looks are a favourite of mine. It suits you very much & I like the idea of having a Mod look that isn't as dramatic that you can wear in the day time & then maybe add more if you were going out at night!! Stunning on you doll x

  7. LOVE. I like the strong, clean lines of mod looks, too, though I rarely do them myself since they're just so strong. I love this shade of nude lipstick on you!

  10. This is inspired. Thanks for sharing the products you used to create the look. That's always helpful. I really love it. I'm going to try recreating it I think. I'm going to try highlighter all the way under the eye instead of bringing the shadow down around the bottom quarter. Do you think that will be too odd or too much of a strong look for daily wear?

  11. I think this look works perfect on you! Also I want my hair to look like this. Is it just a normal braid? I guess it would help if my hair wasn't frizzy as hell, too. Yours looks so smooth.

  20. Try it!!! Since my eyes are very small and I exaggerated the wing a lot, I felt that I had to make it look proportionate by doing the bottom eye too. But you might totally get away with it!

  21. Thanksssss!!! I actually just tied the top half of my hair up and kinda fluffed it forward a little bit to create that bump-it illusion. This is one instance when I wish I still had my bump its!
