Step into the swinging ’60s with The Powder Room

Posted at 12:30 pm, February 4, 2012 in Shopping & Style

Since watching BBC Four’s drama ‘We’ll Take Manhattan’, which told the story of photographer David Bailey and model Jean Shrimpton’s 1962 Vogue photoshoot, we’ve become obsessed with the style of the ’60s. Luckily we were offered the chance to visit Soho’s retro beauty boutique The Powder Room for a make-up masterclass on how to pull together a look which combines the mod glamour of Shrimpton, Twiggy, Penelope Tree et al. Watch the video (above) for a step-by-step guide, from prepping and priming to applying those tricky false lashes.
