’70s style is back on trend. Find out which ’70s makeup items are essential to getting this look on.
The ’70s are back! Okay, maybe not disco or leisure suits, but definitely makeup and fashion from this cool era are making a comeback. This means effortlessly chic looks with major style factor.
The Spring/Summer fashion shows for 2015 gave a huge nod to ’70s style. Hair, fashion and makeup all had that “American Hustle” vibe. The good news? ’70s makeup looks are easy to pull off, require minimal products, and look ultra glam.
Ready to give it a try? Here’s what you’ll need.
Far Out ’70s Makeup Essentials
Mascara // When we think ’70s makeup the first icon that comes to mind has to be model Twiggy. And where would she have been without those lashes? Not exactly sporting Twiggy-esque eye fringe? I found this tutorial on getting the lashes of your dreams in an instant. Best natural mascara ever? Dr. Hauschka Volume Mascara gives length and thickness without clumping or smudging.
Eyeliner // This may be obvious, but eyeliner is the most important factor in achieving the quintessential ’70s inspired makeup look. Think Jane Birkin and Bridgette Bardot. You may have to jump outside your comfort zone here and try some liquid eyeliner. I know, for those of us who love our pencils this is a reach. But it isn’t as scary or difficult as you may think. And nothing provides the perfect cat eye like liquid liner. Use Lavera Liquid Eyeliner in black and follow this tutorial on rocking the cat eye.
Not all ’70s eyeliner was black. White made a big appearance on eyes in the decade too. Wear alone or layer it over black eyeliner. So Debbie Harry. This calls for Benecos Natural Eyeliner in White.
Want a more natural look? Step away from the eyeliner and play up those brows. On the skimpy side? Follow this tutorial to full brow nirvana. To complement the look, blend creamy cocoa-hued shadow across lids. Go for Lavera Eyebrow Pencil and RMS Beauty Eye Polish in Karma.
Highlighter // Ok, they may not have used this product back in the day but you’ll love it now. Highlighter gives skin instant luminosity. Like you’ve been enjoying some good old fashioned fresh air and sunshine in your plastic stripped chaise, while sipping a Tab and waiting for your Sun-In to take hold. Kjaer Weis Radiance is the ultimate organic highlighter.
Lips & Cheeks // Since eyes and skin take center stage with this look, keep lips and cheeks natural with a pinky nude. RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek in Demure offers a barely there flush you could have been born with. And what says ’70s minimalism like a multitasking beauty product?
Scent // To get the authentic feel, transport yourself straight back to the decade of love with a unisex scent. LURK Beauty is releasing three new androgynous scents this week just in time for summer. Made with essential oils, completely free from synthetics, and happen to have a pretty darn good lookin’ Instagram too, LURK’s latest are appropriate for her or him. Choose from delicate, seductive, or spicy. Stay tuned in by following them on Facebook.
