Throwback Thursday: Flick You

-------

Christy Turlington CateyeThrowback Thursday offers the perfect opportunity to pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Christy Turlington

The Moment: Retro cat-eyes gone nineties

The Motivation: If we had to play favorites with the original supers, Christy Turlington would get our vote just about every time. Mother of two, Gallatin graduate, philanthropist, and the poster child for aging gracefully, hers is the kind of timeless beauty that radiates from the inside out—and boy does she wear makeup well! This thick, pre-Amy Winehouse cat-eye manages to skirt the retro-modern line, although there’s something quintessentially nineties about that heavily lined, tadpole-like brow that makes this snap that much more fetching—that and her flawless complexion and pouty nude lips, obviously. Thank God the 44-year-old is still racking up editorials; here’s to forty more years!
