The Tour de Force of Twiggy: Rag & Bone’s 60s Inspired Hair and Makeup

This Fall 2013 season, Rag & Bone waved goodbye to their longtime friend grunge-chic, opting instead for a more sophisticated kind of cool. Designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright expressed their desire for a crisp, clean beauty look that would compliment the vintage flight-inspired collection, which Revlon global art director Gucci Westman and Redken hair stylist Guido Palau gladly delivered.

“We had to evolve someday. We couldn’t do Kate Moss forever,” Westman says in an article on The Rag & Bone girl has grown up indeed—she’s ditched her beloved black-rimmed eyes, and pulled her hair back in a messy bun, opting for a subtler, more refined look.

After creating a clean, glowing complexion with a lightweight matte foundation, Westman turned to her good friend, liquid eyeliner. Using Revlon’s ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in Blackest Black and ColorStay Crème Get Liner in Black, Westman began to etch the eyeliner along the crease of the eyelid, starting about a quarter of an inch from nose, and extended the line outward to the temple, an exaggeration of the classic ‘60s style.

Westman then applied coats of mascara to both the top and bottom lashes with Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara in Blackest Black. Though lashes were large and luscious—and completely real—the thick black line arched high on the eyelid stole the show.

Brows were groomed accordingly, and then penciled in with Revlon’s Brow Fantasy for maximum fullness, framing the face. Lips were painted with ColorStay Ultimate Suided Lipstick in Supermodel, a pale mauve lip color.

Palau echoed the ’60s sentiment with low-slung buns teased to perfection. Combing hair over to create a deep side, Palau then pulled hair back in a bun and secured with an elastic hair tie.

That’s Twiggy with a twist for you.
