Face Value: Makin’ the Scene – 60’s Beach Party Style

Face Value: Makin’ the Scene – 60’s Beach Party Style

If you can’t get to the beach these days, no worries. You can at least look like you stepped right off the sand with the 1960’s “Beach Party” look that is gnarly!

LinkedIn Local host Melody Baron has planned a series of summer music events upstairs at The Elephant of Mt Vernon. Even though the lights were low and the vibe is speakeasy, Melody’s look put Annette Funnicello to shame. We mixed liquid bronzer into her BB cream to glow like a pro. Then, we added lashes and charcoal shadow for a fun throwback. With her fun mix of music and guests, she was well on the way to making The Elephant into the next groovy hangout.

Of course, the swinging ’60’s look was a perfect fit for the grand opening party of Scott Plank’s Swim Club in Canton, where I made up the poolside models and some VIP’s.

Here’s event planner and host Alicia Mozina with smoky and frosted eyes and – a must have to be far out and fab – going a little heavy on my own new frosty Diamond Lip topper in ” The Big O.” These are made without wax, so they can be dabbed on cheeks, too.

A little aside – Towson may not be what immediately comes to mind when you think of a 60’s beach party, but here’s how models Joseph and Megan and stylist Mets Feeley (in the middle) pulled off the look with threads from Quiet Storm boutique and bronzer from About Faces Spa upstairs.

Finally, I continued that vibe doing the makeup for blogger Katie Bruxell for a shoot with Liza Romero they did for their blogs. We used mineral powder foundation on her with a luminous bronzer, followed by a liquid eye and lip that gives a wet look. Couldn’t resist popping a pair of Katie Perry’s new lashes on her as she doesn’t get to wear them often enough.

Outta sight!
