ColorOn Tatto Eye Shadow

Applied like a temporary tattoo, these press-on shadows by the US beatuy company ColorOn provide some seriously eye-popping effects. The Nature's Glory collection mimics the intricate paterns of feathers and winds. Just perfect for those party animals too busy to make-up.

The eyes were supposed to be the main attraction. Lipstick was either pale or non-existent so that the eyes would get all the attention. Lashes were big. Some were even painted on. If you’d like to know how to apply '60s eye make up, follow these simple steps in the video.

Niki de Saint-Phalle

Sprawling, cavorting over these pages: the happiest beach arrivals of 1968 - Nanas that float. Niki de Saint-Phalle's fantasy sculptures of huge, exuberant, popover-shaped women, the famous Nanas, now in inflatable vinyl, silk-screened in wildly vivid Day-Glo colours, and in three different size-teddy-to titanic. All are light as air, portable, floatable, takable-to-the-beach, strewable-about-the-place, hugely enjoyable in a hundred ways. Which suits the beautiful Niki de Saint-Phalle - posed serenely among them here - just fine: she sees the Nanas as messengers of joy, wants the message spread.....
