I am EVERYDAY people (yeah yeah)
Over the years some have asked me why I care about people and causes that don’t really affect my everyday life. I’ve been asked if I was gay or if I was part native American. No, I’m not. If there were some specific reason I should care about the Sudan or autism or any of the other causes I’ve been in my own little ways, involved with.I am EVERYDAY people (yeah yeah) Over the years some have asked me why I care about... more

• Miniskirts years 60s 70s • Girls sixties seventies images gallery minidress pictures
----The miniskirt is a skirt with a hemline well above the knees ( generally 20 cm , or more , above knee level ).
The mini was the defining fashion symbol of "Swinging London" in the 1960s.
The miniskirt's existence in the 1960s is generally credited to the fashion designer Mary Quant who was inspired by the Mini Cooper automobile, although the French designer André Courrèges is also often cited as its inventor (the French referred to it as la mini-jupe), and there is disagreement as to who invented it first.
Some give the credit to Helen Rose who made some miniskirts for actress Anne Francis in the 1956 science fiction movie forbidden-planet.
Recently, Marit Allen, a Vogue "Young Ideas" editor at the time, has stated that "John Bates, in particular, has always been completely unappreciated for his contribution to the innovation and creativity he brought to the London design scene." He bared the midriff, used transparent vinyl and, Marit Allen asserts, was responsible for "the raising of the hemline. It was John Bates, rather than Mary Quant or Courrèges, who was responsible for the miniskirt."
Bates' costumes and accessories for Diana Rigg as Emma Peel in the ABC TV series, The Avengers, from 1965-7, helped to define "Mod style".
As The Avengers' filmed episodes were made several months before screening, Avengers producer Brian Clemens confirmed in interviews that the miniskirt designed by Bates had to be used as a "gamble", since they did not know if it would catch on in public or be seen as a fashion failure by the time the episodes aired .
However, Emma Peel's fashions were accepted by the public and even spawned a line of replicas of her clothes for public sale.
Another, more "immediate" proponent of the miniskirt on television was Cathy McGowan, who introduced the weekly rock music show, Ready Steady Go! (1964-66).

Hannah Rarick wears her hair in bangs and favors hoop earnings and polka dot mini dresses. She reads Teen Set magazine and spins records by the Monkees and Beatles on her turntable. From this description, the Ohio resident might seem like your everyday woman from, say, 1967. Not quite. Rarick is a college student who wasn’t even born until 1987.
Then there’s Devon Clarke Geyer. He not only listens exclusively to ’60s music, he seeks out obscure artists like Vashti Bunyan and Phil Ochs. The Berklee College of Music sophomore says his most memorable musical experience was getting to hear the third Velvet Underground album on vinyl. Geyer is a ripe old 19.
Considering their ages, you’d think Rarick and Geyer might be going gaga over new acts like Lady Gaga. But today’s hot artists only leave them cold. According to Rarick, current music sounds like “everybody screaming at each other and talking about beating up their wives or something to that effect.”Hannah Rarick wears her hair in bangs and favors hoop earnings and polka dot mini... more
Legendary mod model Lesley Hornby, (better known as TWIGGY Lawson), has gigantic, green, painted eyes that defined a decade. Here's a how-to on her striking look. This eye makeup is great if you want to stand out at a party, maybe not so great for work, as I unfortunately discovered.
[CLICK LINK ABOVE FOR BETTER, ILLUSTRATED DIRECTIONS]
[INSTRUCTABLE here >> http://www.instructables.com/id/Get-Twiggy-Eyes-A-Makeup-How-To/ ]
At 16 in the mid 60’s, she was an internationally-known supermodel, (”the first”, according to her official website). Signaturely thin to the extreme - almost androgynous - with a boyish frame and hairstyle, her pretty, pouty lips and irresistibly cute expressions dominated fashion magazines of the 60’s. Twiggy’s beautifully spiderish eyes and simple, mod style greatly influenced fashion in Britain and America at the time and continues to do so. Even today, she is still the face of the 60’s in the U.K.
Twiggy’s mod wardrobe consisted of mini- and micro-mini skirts and dresses with simple and bold patterns, shapes, and colors. This style is attributed to Mary Quant, a British fashion designer credited with the invention of the mini-skirt. Quant is also known for bright, bold shades on eyes, lips, and nails - a style sometimes referred to as “Paint Box” makeup.
1. PREP & POWDER - Wash face and apply concealer, powder, and a light peach blush if desired. Lightly brush a bit of powder underneath your eyes. This will help keep stray eyeshadow from messing up your look, as it will be easier to brush it away, (oh-so-gentley), with a makeup brush. You may also want to refine and thin out the shape of your eyebrows first.
2. SHADOW - Though Twiggy did not always do this, a pearly white or light shade of eyeshadow can be brushed over eyelid to minimize darkness. Applying a bit of pearly shadow or eyeliner in the corners and underneath the eyes is also optional but recommended to enhance and enlarge the eyes.
3. CREASE - With a small eyeliner or angled shadow brush, line just a smidge above the natural crease of your eyes with a dark brown, grey, or black shadow.
Loose powder works best, a pencil may even be used very lightly if accuracy is an issue, just be sure to smudge it so it’s not just a solid line.
4. LINER - Now it gets tricky. You may want to have a damp Q-Tip at hand in case you mess up so errors can quickly be erased because it’s harder to take off dry liquid liner.
As for the type of liquid liner, I recommend Physicians’ Formula. The cheaper brands don’t line evenly, streak, and are generally not worth it.
5. LIDS - Start at the outer edge of your eyelid as close to your lash line as you can. Make the line gradually thin out as you get to the corner of your eye. If you can’t handle it, you don’t have to line all the way to the corner, just get a little past your iris at least. Twiggy’s lid liner extends past the corner and outer edge, forming “wings” on both sides that end and meet the eyeshadow crease line.
6. LASHES - This for me is the most irritating step. If you absolutely can’t stand them, get a really good lengthening mascara and brush on coat after coat, blinking on a tissue or your finger between coats to avoid clumping. Better yet, get Imju Fiberwig mascara for the illusion of false lashes.
The false lashes should be very long, thick, and exaggerated as possible. I like the Halloween ones, but get whatever you’re comfortable wearing. To apply, very carefully peel both lash sets off plastic. Very gently squeeze a thin line of glue along the edge. Be sure to apply the lashes to the right eye, (the longer side goes to the outer edge, smaller to the corner).
