Twiggy Reveals The Time Consuming Process Behind Her Iconic Lash Look

Twiggy Reveals The Time Consuming Process Behind Her Iconic Lash Look

Twiggy has joined Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn as part of Charlotte Tilbury’s latest Pillow Talk campaign. The 72-year-old supermodel posed against a pink-hued backdrop to promote the makeup line’s expansion, which includes an eyeshadow palette, cream shadow pots, highlighters and, in true Twiggy style, a volumising mascara.

“I am thrilled to be part of the Pillow Talk campaign,” Twiggy told People. “Charlotte is a friend, and I admire her achievements very much. It was such fun to work together. We laughed a lot.” 

Now to the question we all want the answer to: what does her beauty routine look like? In terms of skin care, Twiggy revealed that keeping her dry complexion in check requires “a good night’s sleep [and] a healthy diet” plus Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream ($125, Charlotte Tilbury) as a “gorgeous everyday” moisturiser. 

As for makeup? “[It’s] always been an important part of how I look, from the 1960s up until present day,” she said. Her dramatic lashes, which are iconic in their own right, were actually the product of an experimental 16-year-old Twiggy. “[They] would take me one and a half hours to apply, including three pairs of false eyelashes.”

To recreate the look for yourself, we recommend the Ardell Natural Lashes 120 Black Eyelashes ($10.99, Adore Beauty).

And 56 years on, not much has changed. Just as we can’t imagine Twiggy without her wispy doe-eyed lashes, it turns out she feels the same way: “I don’t feel fully dressed without my eyes on.”

  1. Never had the patients for my eyelashes, and so many great mascara’s on the market to volumize my lashes to good enough in less than 2 minutes. Have to admit Twiggy lashes are amazing.
