Coco Rocha channels her inner sixties siren with a backed comb bouffant and feline lined eyes in the new Banana Republic Mad Men campaign. You can revisit the sixties with our how-to on our inspired looks, as seen on icons of the era Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton.
The key to this look is a flawless complexion. To achieve a flawless face, prep your skin with a primer or BB Cream, then apply a thin layer of full-coverage foundation such as Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation. Finish with a light dusting of powder to soak up any excess shine.
Next up is blush, swipe a rosy glow over cheekbones and a little bronze beneath for a little extra definition.
In the 60s, perfect pouts were kept pale and matte, we recommend a pep to pink or peach sorbet shade. The best matte lipsticks can be found at M.A.C and thanks to their endless selection you can find the perfect hue to suit your skin tone. But beware of anything with a lilac hue as it can look dated instead retro cool.
The focal point to the swinging sixties beauty look are the peepers. When experimenting with sixties inspired make-up we have a few suggestions to create chic eyes. Firstly, layer on black mascara to exaggerate the eye and make the lashes chunky and voluminous. Next, paint on a graphic liquid line, keep it current and draw on a delicate line just above the lashes, flicking it up on the outer corner.
The beauty brave can even add khol to the bottom lashes to create a doe-eyed effect.
Complete the look with a slick of white pencil onto your waterline, as seen at Moschino’s S/S13 show

The voluminous beehive barnet ruled the sixties, while it may look tricky to do, this flattering hairstyle is all down to a little backcombing and hairspray.
The pro’s use a fine-toothed comb, but we find using a big bristle brush is quick and easy way to back comb.
Simply divide the hair in parts, starting from beneath to add height. Start from the nape of your neck and work your way in sections towards the crown. Be sure to finish with plenty of hairspray to help hold the style.
Complete your look by wrapping a printed silk headscarf around your new do to become the ultimate sixties siren. Jean Shrimpton eat your heart out.
