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.

This makeup look works for most complexion but I think it would be amazing on medium to dark complexions.  Here is what I used to get a similar look to Ursula’s… Continue reading | 9 Comments
