60s Sharon Tate Makeup Tutorial

Prev1 of 5

With my first video from my Classic Beauty Series, I would like to celebrate the beautiful Sharon Tate. The “Valley of the Dolls” star was unfortunately tragically murdered in 1969, leaving her young in our minds for all time. Sharon’s beauty radiated from her kind heart. She was known to be one of the sweetest and most peaceful actresses of her time. So with this video, let’s try to re-create her iconic look on our model Marketa Janska using the following steps and products.

Step 1

Apply a light coat of cream foundation on the face and neck. I used the Cinema Secrets palette from the 400 Series. (Specifically, I used 403-05 with a bit of 403-12.) I love using this brand because their foundations are highly pigmented and made with a professional, on-camera formula.

Step 2

Next, apply concealer. I like to stick with the same texture as the foundation, so I used the same Cinema Secrets palette. (I used the color 401-71 as the concealer).

Step 3

Set everything really well with Makeup Forever Loose Powder #00.

Step 4

With a powder brush, remove any excess powder.

Step 5

Next, apply the eye shadow. I used the LORAC PRO Contour Palette. I applied the shade “Beige Highlight” over the entire lid and brow bone.

Step 6

Now, take the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette to draw a floating eyeliner in the crease with the color “Soles”.

Step 7

With a small, angled brush, go over the center of the floating eyeliner with a black eye shadow to create more depth. In this case, I used the color “Shax” from the same Kat Von D eye palette.

Step 8

With the “Soles” eye shadow color from this palette, draw a soft eyeliner line just above the lash line.

Step 9

Then, with the same color, line the bottom of the eyelid to frame the eyes.

Step 10

Extend the bottom eyeliner to the end of the floating eyeliner.

Step 11

Use a white eye pencil in the waterline. I used the Obsessive Compulsive Pencil in the shade “Anti-Feathered”.

Step 12

Apply 2 coats of black mascara to the top and bottom lashes. I used Legendary Lashes Mascara by Charlotte Tilbury.

Step 13

Apply KATLash “Unique 2” eyelashes. I chose to use individual lashes, as they give me more control than strip lashes do to create that wide-eyed look that Sharon Tate had.

Step 14

Apply a light coat of black mascara to combine the KATLash with your natural lashes. This will also accentuate the lashes even more.

Step 15

Brush the eyebrows upward.

Step 16

Create a wild, feathered look by drawing upward strokes with the Brow Wiz by Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Step 17

Apply blush to the cheeks. For the blush, I used the BECCA palette Blushed with Light. The shade I used was “Wisteria”.

Step 18

Apply highlighter to the top of the cheekbones. I used the Ginny Cosmetics Ivory Tower Palette #506.

Step 19

From the same Kat Von D palette as before, use “Succubus” to highlight the brow bone.

Step 20

Add contour powder if necessary to frame your face.

Step 21

Apply Glamour Garden liquid lipstick. I used the shade “90s Girl”.

Step 22

For a more stylized look, connect the two top eyeliner lines. You can use the Kat Von D palette from before or an eyeliner pencil.

And, if you’d like, go over the eyeliner to thicken it and intensify the look.

To complete the look, put soft, messy waves into your hair. Use a few tracks of hair extensions if needed. While Sharon Tate’s hair was pretty done up for photo shoots, in everyday life, she was a free-spirit with effortless hair. After all, it was the boho 60s. I hope you enjoyed my Sharon Tate tutorial!
