Video: Veruschka 60s Eye Makeup

Veruschka von Lehndorff is a German model and actress who was hugely popular in the 60s and 70s. She had that bombshell look but was also a cosmetic chameleon as I discovered from reading a book I recently bought called ‘The Beautiful Peoples Beauty Book’ by Luciana Avedon

Luciana writes – ‘The Beauty who has been everywhere and back with make-up is Veruschka, who substituted cosmetics for clothes and launched the nude look a few years back.
Veruschka – “Two years ago, I could have spent hours in front of a mirror trying colours”
“I had fun gluing on strange eyelashes and drawing on designs. My face wasn’t a face any more, it was a shaped canvas” ‘


I wanted to re-create one of her many looks so decided on a beautiful 60s eye with bronzed skin, a combination I think works beautifully.
