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.

Martine Beswick

Hammer film actress and Bond girl. Two things that I’ve always wanted on my resume but it’s never happening.  – Here’s what I did to get a 1970’s Martine Beswick inspired look:

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

I’m an Estee Lauder fan girl. Estee Lauder fragrances are attainable, affordable and well-done. Out of all of the Estee Lauder scents, Cinnabar, the spicy floriental, is the most “me”.

Halston Z-14 Cologne Fragrance Video Review

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Fragrance

Launched in 1976, Z-14 is a fragrance that contains every note in the universe. It’s loud and it throws. Because of this, it’s a polarizing fragrance. You either love or hate it. Or love it 50% of the time and hate it the rest of the time. I’m in the “love” team of Z-14. It’s a wonderful manly scent, very Boogie Nights, a perfume on the prowl in a discotheque.
