FOTD: 60s Mod Makeup Look With A Twist Makeup Tutorial

I have always loved the 60s mod look. Graphic black and white shadow paired with lots of lashes is simply hot! And so here is me trying to do a similar look but with a twist. Instead of stark black and white, I used softer colors and of course, lots and lots of lashes.
