1970’s Fashion – Get the Makeup Look of Susan George

Susan George

Here’s one of those “no makeup” 70’s makeup looks. These are a nice change for me. Not all vintage looks are red lipstick or heavy black eyeliner. Here’s what I did to get the look of 70’s sexpot, Susan George:

FACE: Susan’s face makeup is too matte for my tastes, but I’ll forgive it because her skin is flawless. Now I can’t say that for the rest of us; we know that matte foundations and looks are “aging” too. With my fingers… Continue reading | 1 Comment

1970’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Barbara Bouchet

1970's makeup look of Barbara Bouchet

I’m guessing that this is a 70’s look but it could easily be a late 60’s Casino Royale era look. Whatever the decade, I like this look. It’s a retro smoky eye that works for all complexions. Here’s what I did to get a Bond Girl-esque Miss Bouchet inspired look.

EYES: I’m starting with eyes first because they are heavy and so I won’t mess up my face makeup. With Estee Lauder Brow Perfecting Duo in Brunette, I… Continue reading

Sunkissed 70’s Look: Get The Look of Ali MacGraw

I just want summer to be here! Here’s a very easy to wear sunkissed 70’s look. It’s a nice look, but man, I hate 70’s hair…

FACE: Apply a no-fuss tinted moisturizer to clean skin. I like the formula and color selection of Bobbi Brown SPF Tinted Moisturizer. Dust a natural looking bronzer like Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder all over the face. Apply a little more to the cheeks to use as a blush.

EYES: Brows are thick and very natural. Apply a clear brow… Continue reading | 1 Comment

1970’s Fashion: Get The Makeup Look of Tanya Roberts

Tanya Roberts

Who doesn’t want a completely made up look every know and then? I love Tanya’s look here. This angel is all made up and it is all about product. Every feature features color. I love it.

FACE: Even out skintone with a foundation such as NARS Balanced Foundation in your shade. Apply concealer where needed. I like the creaminess of Prescriptives Flawless Skin Total Protection Concealer. I like to apply it with fingertips since the warmth of your body helps it to melt and look… Continue reading

More Fall Dandy: Givenchy Pocket Beauty Case Highlighter

Givenchy Pocket Case

Seems as if Dior and Givenchy accidentally got some wires crossed for their Fall 2008 Color Collections. Givenchy has released some of their items and they are a bit “dandy”. This new Givenchy Pocket Beauty Case plays along with the 1930’s, old Hollywood androgyny, and 1970’s Faye Dunaway vibe. This is a new adorable silver Givenchy logo-ed “pocket watch” styled beauty case. It houses a dewy shimmering sheer pink highlighter that can be used on lips, cheeks, chest, or shoulders. My vote is for lips. It looks… Continue reading | 2 Comments
