1970’s Fashion – Get the Makeup Look of Rita Lee

Rita Lee

I love Rita Lee. I love any woman that plays a theremin. Here’s my non-fussy simple early 1970’s makeup look inspired by Rita Lee here:

FACE: Rita’s freckles show through. I applied Lancôme Beinfait Multi-Vital Tinted Moisturizer in Sand for sheer coverage. I need more coverage under the eyes, so I applied Covergirl Simply Ageless Concealer in Corrector with my fingers. I took a fluffy brush and applied Clarins Loose Powder in Beige to the t-zone. On the cheeks I applied NARS Bronzer in Laguna for a little bit of color.

EYES: The great thing about fringe is that your brows don’t have to be perfect 🙂 I combed brows into place and  filled in my brows with MAC Impeccable Brow Pencil in Blonde. With a large eyeshadow brush, I applied Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Latte, a matte buttermilk from lash line to brows. This is the canvas. I lined the upper lash line with Urban Decay 24/7  Eye Pencil in Zero, a black. I lined 3/4 of the bottom lash line with this same pencil. I did not line the waterline. I connected the top and bottom liner at the edge of the eye. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara in Extreme Black.

LIPS: Directly from the tube I applied Wet n Wild MegaLast Lip Color in 900B Pink Suga’, a matte light peach. I topped this with Smith’s Rosebud Salve for subtle shine.

I wanted an amber fragrance for this look, so I went with Costume National Scent Intense.

I hope you guys all have a wonderful weekend. I’m heading out to L.A. tomorrow. I can’t guarantee that there will be posts on EauMG while I’m gone. It’s supposed to be a vacation but I can turn anything into work. OK, I need to go finish packing now 🙂
