More 1960’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Dalida

Get the 1960's makeup look of Dalida

I can never tell an “era” of a Dalida photo since she wore her makeup the same for 30 years. And she looked amazing for over 30 years, so, I’m guessing this is a late 60’s, maybe early 70’s photograph of the singer, Dalida. Here’s my take on this look:

EYES: Because this look is “eye focused”, I started with eye makeup. I filled in brows with e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Lifter and Filler in Ash. With a fluffy eyeshadow brush, I applied Lancôme Color Design Eyeshadow in Latte, a light matte creamy beige. I applied this from lash line to brows. For liner/shadow, I used Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner in Natural Black. With a wet angled liner brush, I applied this eyeliner like a shadow. I applied it to the entire lid. With the dry powder, I lined the bottom lash line. With a small eyeshadow brush, I applied this Clinique formula dry, over the applied shadow, to create a “softer” look. I curled lashes and applied a few coats of Hourglass Film Noir Mascara in Onyx (not pictured). I then applied a strip of Ardell Fashion lashes cut in half.

FACE: Under the eyes with my Bobbi Brown Concealer Brush, I applied MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC20. With my fingers, I blended in Shiseido Stick Foundation in o20. With a powder brush, I set foundation with Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Transparent. For a glowing complexion, I applied Benefit High Beam in a “C” on my cheeks to above the brow and blended. I also blended this pale shimmery cream down my nose. Cheeks are sheer but I have to have a little color. I applied a light dusting of NARS Bronzer in Laguna to the top of cheek bones.

LIPS: Lips are nude. I lined lips with Jordana Lipliner in Toast, a light warm brown (not pictured). Directly from the tube, I applied Clinique Different Lipstick in Tenderheart, a light warm brown with enough pinky-peach in it so you don’t look dead. With my finger, I pressed a wee bit of the Rimmel Pressed Powder on the bottom of my lip for a matte look.

Now for a fragrance…I want something woodsy, sultry and that’s why I topped this look off with Juliette Has A Gun Midnight Oud, a rose-oud.

    1. I haven’t really thought about doing that. Well, I thought about doing a few Beyonce looks because her makeup always looks amazing. Oh, wait, that’s because she looks amazing!
      I actually like the idea of doing an Angelina look, gives me a reason to bust out the bronzer 🙂
