Here’s a 1975 magazine cover of actress Jennifer O’Neill. She’s one of those people that if you see her today, she’s even more beautiful. I guess nine marriages keeps you looking youthful 😉 Jennifer now resides in Nashville on a horse farm. Here’s what I did to get this mid-70’s look:
FACE: With my fingers, I blended Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation in Beige Clair. Under the eyes, I applied Covergirl Simply Ageless Concealer in Corrector. With the brush included, I applied a light dusting of Lancôme Colour Ideal Pressed Powder in Medium 10. I also contoured down the nose and forhead with a contouring powder. In the hollows of the cheeks, I applied with a medium sized blush brush, Clarins Bronzing Powder in Golden Sun, a lighter hued bronzer, blending upwards.
EYES: Brows are very defined. I used Benefit Brow Zings in Medium. I applied the powder and set with the wax. For the eyeshadow, I’m using Lancôme Color Design. From lashline to brows, I applied Honeymoon, a shimmery champagne. With a blending shadow brush, I applied Couture, a matte chocolate above the crease. And in the outer “v”. And smudged on the bottom lashline. On the inner lid, I applied Optic, a slightly shimmery stone. I lined the top lashline with Avon Ultra Luxury Eye Liner in Dark Brown. I also lined the top waterline. I lined the bottom lashline over 3/4 of the way. Not on the waterline! On the bottom waterline, I applied L’Oreal HIP Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Ligthing, a metallic silver. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Maybelline Full ‘n Soft Mascara (not pictured). Since I have no eyelashes, I applied Ardell lashes. If you have thick lashes you can go without the falsies. And if you have thick lashes, hug your mamma for giving you great genetics.
LIPS: I lined my natural lip line with Revlon ColorStay Liner in Natural, the name is what it is. I applied Badger Lip Tint in Red Jasper, a netural “redder” than my lips color. I applied a small amount of e.l.f. Minty Lip Gloss in Nashville, a neutral tan. And what an appropriate name!
For a fragrance I went with the original Prada EDP. I wanted something woodsy and ambery.
I like this look because it’s still pretty now. And the hair isn’t awful like most 70’s style 🙂 I apologize about my picture. It’s so annoying to take pictures when there is no sunlight.
Do you have any weekend plans? I don’t really have any. I seriously need to go to the spice market. I’m all out of cumin and that’s just wrong for the EauMG household. And I have some projects to wrap up this weekend. So, yeah, not an exciting weekend but I hope you’ll have a great one!
