I have seen many threads on Sixties Style here but none mention the late great Sharon Tate!
Her hair, makeup and fashion style was such a part of the sixties, although with her timeless beauty, she could fit into almost any decade. Also, I know that fashion designers and even makeup artists say that she inspired them.
Some info on her-

What made you want to become a makeup artist?
From the time I was a child I was always fascinated by the fashion world. When I was seven I was already reading the fashion magazines and keeping up with all the latest styles. I began doing makeup on my friends at school, driving them crazy with new ideas. I do not know what I would have done if I'd not chosen this path in life.
What is your schedule like in a given year for example?
I do about 40 events for the fashion industry every year from traveling to Paris, London, Milan and New York. Beyond that I do makeup for models like Naomi Campbell and Helena Christensen. I also have made up film stars like Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Elizabeth Hurley. I feel like I'm the luckiest person to be able to do what I enjoy.
What is your favorite style of make up?
The look I prefer focuses attention on the eyes. I like to use dark and intense colors for the eyes and contrast that with a veil of gloss beige. It's always a fashionable style that never goes out.
Who are the icons of beauty that inspire you?
My preferred ones are Brigitte Bardot, Sharon Tate, Raquel Welch and Audrey Hepburn.
