My Modern 60’s Makeup Look With Mischa Barton


Mischa Barton was looking for a sleek yet understated look for a daytime event and her geometric print Jaeger SS13 Jacquard tuxedo jacket was pleading to be teamed with a modern sixties hair and makeup.

Mischa has amazing skin, perfectly symmetrical lips and fabulous cheekbones making her one of the easiest celebrity faces I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Here’s what happened…


I prepped the skin with Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (£11.99) to create a smoother and longer lasting base for foundation.

For the foundation I used Maestro Fusion Make-Up by Giorgio Armani (£36.00) followed by Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer (£18.00). I then highlighted her cheekbones with a small amount of BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone (£33.00).

For a matte yet completely powder free look I applied a dusting of By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder (£41.00) If you have not tried this powder, put it on your Christmas list immediately – it’s amazing!

To finish off the complexion I contoured the cheekbones with Sleek Blush in Honour (£4.29) a flattering shade of rosy bronze with just a touch of shimmer and an amazing price!


I used the new Urban Decay Naked Basics palette (£17.00) with L’Oréal Paris Super Liner (£5.55) a liquid eyeliner pen used to create an elegant extended flick with a gradual increase in line thickness. After curling lashes I apply two coats of YSL Volume Luxurious Mascara (£23.00).


To avoid the look becoming too ‘sixties tribute’ I swerved away from the decidedly sixties pale lip and instead went for a rosy nude – Topshop Lipstick in Rumour Has It (£8.00).


I popped Velcro rollers in Mischa’s hair taking them backwards, in the direction I want the hair to lay. I backcombed the roots to give them some lift before sweeping the hair into a loose, low bun and left a few loose strands in the front to give the whole look a more relaxed feel.[/vc_column_text]
