Sure you do! Who could resist that *mod* Pixie princess look? Okay, okay. So the bold, dramatic eyes and pale percy lips aren't for everyone. But if you're looking for a fun new you, or just feel like playing around with make-up, these are the tips for you! As a very beauty inclined young lady and make-up analysist, I have studied only from the best (such as the late Kevyn Aucoin) and with many years of practice, experimenting, and hard study, I've come to master the art of make-up. :) It's one of my biggest passions! Just by studying a picture carefully, I can analyze the procedures one would take to imitate that look flawlessly. So are you ready to go Pixie Princess Fabulous?

The Tools You'll Need:
* Translucent Loose Face Powder (Stear clear of 'matte' foundations, that produce a heavy, cakey finish. You don't want to cover up those Twiggy freckles! :) Try Clinique Superpowder Double Face Powder).
* Light Face Moisturizer (Clinique Dramatically Different Moisurizing Lotion).
* Eyebrow Tweezers (any drugstore brand should do!).
* Black Liquid Eyeliner (We recommend something with a fine pointed applicator, for more precise detail. Try Lancome Artline in 'Noir', $25, or Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in 'Black', $8).
* White and Black Eyeshadows (Maybelline Midnight/Lace Duo is perfect! The black leaves a metallic, glitter finish for that extra something).
* Black Eyeliner Pencil (Rimmel Eyelining Pencil in 'Very Black').
* Black/Dark Brown Mascara (Maybelline Lash Expansion is a God sent! I'm also in love with Lancome Amplicils Mascara).
* Light Brown Eyebrow Pencil (this one is optional for those with light eyebrows. Even if you have dark brows, using this pencil as a touch up and defining your natural brow line is always a good idea).
* Full Set of False Lashes (Very essential, ladies! This look is just not the same without those brilliant, fluttering Twiggy lashes that not even 100 coats of mascara can suffice! I usually get my lashes from MAC, who sells a delicious variety).
* Fleshed Tone Lipstick / Sheer Lip Balm (For me personally, I can't hardly leave the house without my sparkling lipstick glazed smackers! So I prefer Clinique Creamy Nude Lipstick, over plain, boring chapstick. However, if simple is your deal, we suggest Smackers Lip Gloss in "Vanilla", a tasty alternative!).
* Brownie Cupcake Blusher (finishing touch! Estee` Lauder 'Desert' Blush, or Clinique Blusher, in 'Cupcake' or 'Brownie').

Getting Started (The Face):
* To begin, prep your face with a light moisturizer. What effect does this application leave? Moisturizing will give your skin a healthy glow, much like Twiggy's, as it reflects the light bouncing off it. You just want to dab a little bit on your cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin, as you evenly blend all over.
* To lessen the shine and cover any facial sins, apply a light coat of loose powder, again evenly distributed over the entire face. For some of us, a light powder just won't cut it, when trying to conceal a blemish and that's perfectly understandable. Try a little concealer on top of that unwanted pimple and hide it with a powder finish. You can also use that concealer to highlight underneath the eyes, if you wish.
* It's time to define those cheekbones! Many people have a hard time putting on blush correctly. Often, you'll bump into a girl with these radiant bright pink cheeks, in a less than flattering way. Remember, you are *not* trying to enhance the areas parallel to your *nose*! With that in mind, blend your brownie blush diagonally along the cheek BONE. This is a trick Pattie Boyd used, to make her round face appear longer and thinner.

Getting Critical (The Eyes):
* The most vital element of the Twiggy look? Oh, you didn't notice? lol. That's right, girls, the eyes. Those razzle, dazzle, sexy *mod* eyes. Critical? You betcha! So pay close attention. Take your time. Be *careful*. And don't give up! It's definitely *MY* favorite part!
* We'll start north and work our way down, beginning with the eyebrows. Take a look at Twiggy's brow. Soft. Defined. Arched. Meeting at a tapered point. This is your mission. There isn't much other physical advice I can give you, other than observing her brows carefully and tweezing your own with care.
* Once that's established, take your light brown eyebrow pencil and make short, definitive strokes to further shape and define your brows (making sure they come to a precise tapered point).
* Using a medium eyeshadow brush, swab on a coat of white eyeshadow, starting from the lashline to the crease of your eyelid, and blending upwards. Using your black eyelining pencil, start to outline your eyelid crease (as seen on Twiggy). You want to make the line slightly above your natural crease that way once you relax your eyes, it won't disapear into the fold on your eyelid. The line should start almost on the bridge of your nose (inner eye) region, rise up, and then slowly skewer down ending past your crease to a tapered point.
* With a SMALL eyeshadow applicator, take the black eyeshadow and coat it on TOP of the pencil line. Blend it softly, to create a more smokey, sultry look.
* Using your liquid liner, *carefully* make a line as close to your lashline as possible (don't forget to go in between the lashes). If you have very big eyes, you can draw the line thick, like Twiggy's. But if the distance between your eye crease and lashline is thin (like mine), don't make the liquid line TOO thick (or else it will get lost in all that black make-up on your eye crease). Use the Twiggy's pictures as a reference, as to what the line should look like. *note* The sharp end of the liquid line should create the first penciled-in eyelash.
* Now take your liquid eyeliner and begin to actually DRAW on the bottom lashes. You don't want them to look stubby, or too close together. Draw them carefully; the lashes on the outer edge should be the longest and flick outwards. As you move towards the inner part of your eye, draw each lash shorter and smaller.
* Apply your strip of false lashes, glueing them to the base of your lashline, in the shape of your eyeliner.
* Sweep several coats of mascara, on both top and bottom lashes (the mascara on the top will blend your natural lashes with the falsies).

Getting Finished (The Lips):
*The last and final element are your LIPS. Whether you choose the creamy beigey lipstick or just simple sheer lip gloss, dab on a generous amount, smudge, and blot. Then re-apply and blot once more. A waste of lipstick? Not really. By blotting between applications, you remove excess lipstick that would easily wipe off and you're actually preventing the lip color from wearing off (it lasts longer).
 
VOILA!!!
