With winged eyeliner trending once again thanks to tv shows such as Love Child, Max Factor Australia Head Makeup Artist, Liz Kelsh, has created a look inspired by the 60’s Hollywood Bombshell – demonstrating how to update this dramatic, doe-eyed look. The 60’s produced daring beauty looks focusing on big, bold eyes with exaggerated lashes, keeping the skin and lips soft and pale. Liz’s recreation of the 60’s Bombshell look demonstrates how to achieve wearable, modern 60’s Hollywood glamour.


Liz’s latest tutorial is the fourth in a series created to launch internationally popular Crème Puff Pressed Powder as well as NEW Max Factor Crème Puff Blush to the Australian market. The tutorials celebrate the brand’s Hollywood heritage, innovative products and unique makeup artistry techniques by recreating of some of Hollywood’s most iconic looks from throughout the decades.

Get the Look:

  • Use a foundation brush to apply Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation, starting from the centre of the face and blending outwards whilst building up the coverage where needed. Press into the skin with fingertips for a really beautiful, glowing finish.
  • Dot Max FactorMastertouch Concealer under the eyes in a triangle shape and wherever a little extra coverage is needed and blend the edges.
  • Dust Max Factor Crème Puff Pressed Powder in Translucent over the t-zone and outwards to set the foundation and create a flawless finish.
  • Add a little water to Max Factor Crème Puff Blush in Lovely Pink to form a cream, then use your finger to dab onto the apples of the cheeks for a pop of colour
  • Use your fingers to apply Max Factor Excess Shimmer Pot in Copper as a highlighter to the cheekbones and brow bone, creating a youthful, healthy glow and accentuating the high points of the face.
  • Dab Max Factor Excess Shimmer Pot in Pink Opal onto the centre of the eyelids with the fingertip, building up the colour towards the lash line. This will create a shimmering, eye-catching effect.
  • Draw Max Factor Liquid Effect Eyeliner in Black Fire along the top lash line, creating a thicker line towards the middle of the lid, and flick upwards towards the end of the brow to create the perfect wing.
  • Apply Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara in Black to the lashes to achieve the iconic, doe-eyed look. Liz’s tip: Apply mascara to the bottom lashes first so that it doesn’t travel.
  • Use a brush to apply Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Maroon Dust over the lips, finishing with Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss in Lustrous Sand for a beautifully glossy, nude lip.
