At his LFW AW21 fashion show, David Koma leaned heavily on 60s influenced makeup. The 60s was an era that was all about the eyes; extreme eyeliner and eyeshadow in heavy tones of blues, greys and whites all proved to be extremely popular.

This got us thinking of the glamorous looks of icons of the era, such as Diana Ross, Diahann Carroll and Aretha Franklin. I mean, have you ever seen an image of a women wearing sixties makeup who didn’t look absolutely gorgeous? We’ll wait.

The key to this look is to emphasise the eyes, while keeping everything else in neutral, natural tones.
