DIY A Classic '60s Look With A Cheeky, Modern Twist

Beauty in the '60s was classic and polished, with just a liiittle bit of edge. It's no wonder we've been reinventing and reinterpreting the look every decade since. The latest top model to take on the trend? None other than Britain's hottest model-turned-personality Cara Delevingne.
Here's why we, and Cara, still love mod: No matter what other makeup touches a woman adds, super-bold lashes are always a must — and the perfect finishing touch. So, obviously, we're obsessed with Rimmel London's ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara, which does just the trick. The hourglass-shaped brush fans lashes up and out for undeniable volume and a dash of extra drama. To DIY Cara's '60s upgrade, we tapped makeup artist Clarissa Luna for a step-by-step beauty breakdown.
Even better, you can get more retro inspo from Rimmel London's Modcasts, where the brand's sharing '60s fashion and beauty tutorials. Upload a pic of your throwback look to Twitter and Instagram using #modmonday, and you could win a trip to NYC to see Britain’s hottest boy band, plus a $1,500 shopping spree, hair and makeup, and VIP transportation to the concert (click here for details — and hurry! The contest ends on April 14.). Hey, even if you don't win, you'll get killer style cred.
