Lena Dunham is one of the hottest names in Hollywood right now. But, unlike most ultra-successful starlets, she isn’t famous because of a supermodel body or ultra-stylish sense of fashion. Instead, Dunham has some more substantial credentials under her belt, as a writer, actor and producer on the critically-acclaimed show Girls. But just because Dunham is best known for her non-physical attributes doesn’t mean that she can’t look amazing! If anyone needed proof, this Twiggy photo shoot she did for Entertainment Weekly should provide it!
Dunham recently chopped off her hair into a pixie cut, which naturally opens up opportunities to channel the fashion icon. But looking like a 60s supermodel still takes a lot of work, especially when it comes to the ever-important eye makeup:
To begin, Reiss-Andersen drew a thick, winged line along the top of Dunham’s lash line with Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk eye pencil in #4, then traced a heavier line following the crease of the eyelid using Estee Lauder Double Wear gel eye liner in Stay Midnight. “I made the crease appear a little darker by putting taupe eye shadow (the lighter shade in Nars’ Pandora Duo) only in the crease,” she says. “The lines are what give the look that ’60s effect. They have to be very graphic, very precise.”
MAC’s #4 false eyelashes were applied to Dunham’s upper lids, and the lower-lash illusion was created with gel eyeliner and a Chanel Le Crayon Khol eye pencil. “I drew little streaks that look like lashes along the bottom lash line, then added ivory eyeliner to the inside of her lower lids.”
Whew! I suppose no one ever said that looking good was easy. But Dunham’s makeover is so awesome, and I may have to actually put this time and effort into my makeup some night. Head on over to the source to read even more about this style! [via Entertainment Weekly]
