How To Get That Late-60s, Wide-Eyed Beauty Look

Despite Robin Black's self-professed love/hate relationship with beauty, the photographer-cum-makeup artist behind Beauty is Boring is bent on capturing the faces of everyone from top models to friends to perfect strangers with her vintage Big Shot Polaroid camera, complete with Magicubes & film — after she does their makeup, of course. Get your bookmarks tab ready, ladies.
There is something charming about faux lashes under the eye: They always remind me of Mia Farrow in the late '60s, all wide-eyed sexy innocence. And, they are an interesting contrast to upcoming model Miriam Haney's thoroughly modern face. This Polaroid was the second of two looks that I shot of her in late 2012 (check out her first post here). I had completely forgotten about it until I saw Miriam in the Spring/Summer 2014 Marc Jacobs campaign and suddenly remembered that I had tucked away another fun look from that day!
