I love 1960s hair and makeup and would totally wear it every day. I know I'm not alone because a few xoVain commenters mentioned they wanted to see how to do '60s double liner look — where there's a flick at the end of both the top and bottom liner — so I'm showing you how I usually do it. (If enough of us do it, a trend is inevitable, right?)

You only need a few things, the most important being the liner and the brush. I use Anastasia Waterproof Creme Color in Jet and my MAC 263 angle brush. I personally find this look easier to do when using these, though the Anastasia creme color dries quickly, so you have to work fast.

These are the only products I used for this look: liner, mascara and eyeshadows. And you really only need two eye shadows, one for a highlight and one for the crease and under the lower lash line.

In this case, I used three shadows from the Tartelette Amazonian Clay Palette: Free Spirit, Super Mom, and Power Player.

Here's the final result!

You can always make the top liner shorter, or you can make the bottom longer. It's totally up to you!

The main trick to it is just using the top liner as your guide to make sure you have an equal amount of space all the way down. And you can always sharpen the liner up and define the space between liners more with your favorite concealer.
