Let’s be clear, Edie Sedgwick may be the one famous for them, but Audrey Hepburn had them down pat – Mod Eyes.
To be frank, the smoky eye is getting boring and taking it back to a sixties classic always makes for a good change in pace. This makeup Monday inspiration comes from a set on Polyvore.com, so I dare you – just try and pull off-putting black eyeliner in the crease of your eye:
Before that film Sienna Miller starred in in 2006 (Factory Girl), there was the real Edie Sedgwick. Muse to Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan, now bona-fide style icon, the artist-model-actress-socialite, Edie had a mod style that lives in infamy, complete with charcoal, messy eyeliner and cute little shift dresses. Creating the Edie Sedgwick eye means breaking a couple make up rules, like severely lining under the eye, and doing that thing they did in the sixties – putting eyeliner in the crease of the eye, the darker the black eyeliner the better. When you spend your days haunting factories, ceiling lights aren’t always at your fingertips and that Tiffany lamp is the perfect updated version of the sixties decor staple. She was the girl in black tights, and she always paired those black tights with something equally as chic, this tribal beaded shift dress from Catherine Malandrino is emblematic of quintessential Edie Sedgwick style. One of the most enviable traits of Edie’s style was her jewelry collection, she had a thing for over-sized chandelier earrings, and she’d have definitely loved this pair of Jelani earrings from Dannijo. I don’t smoke, never have and never will but these colorful Fantasia cigarettes from Nat Sherman are so chic, so cute, and so Edie.
