Hi ladies, it’s Priscilla from PFS Makeup with a modern twist on ’70s makeup. This was the decade that “glitter” made its first appearance in Vogue. Cream shadows and blushes were the latest inventions in cosmetics, and bronzer was a girl’s best friend. The makeup trends evolved from natural beauty in the early ’70s all the way to high drama during the disco fever of the late ’70s. For the modern girl, a sun-kissed natural look is a great ’70s style that is completely wearable and flattering.
So here’s the skinny for my take on the surfer, hippie, natural look:
1. Go for low maintenance foundation by choosing a tinted moisturizer to achieve natural dewy skin. Always use a foundation brush to obtain even coverage. Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer and 130 Short Duo Fibre Brush by MAC.
2. Get a surfer’s glow with my favorite bronzer, Warmth by Bare Escentuals. Dip your brush in the bronzer and swirl it in the lid for an even application. Dust your forehead, top of your nose, chin and cheek bones to perfect your contour.
3. Use a pencil to lightly fill in your brows, they should be clean and thin. I like Bobbi Brown because it’s soft and there is a color option for every woman.
4. Line your lashes with Chanel’s Le Crayon Khol in Blanc 65 to replicate the ’70s eye trend, or use Claire 29 in your waterline to achieve a more modern version of this look.
5. Lashes should be clean and defined, try a clear or brown mascara for simplicity. I like YSL’s beautiful Vibrant Brown in Singulier Waterproof Mascara.
6. Your lips should have a barely there, glossy tint. Since creams and gels arrived this decade, try an updated version of this formula. Smashbox produced multiple versions of a creative product called o-glow (If you love a tingle try the O-Plump).
