There’s always been something in music from the 70s which has held me entranced for over four decades. I love the groovy vibe. Disco, funk, and soul in particular were genres which enraptured me. The smooth dance moves. The swagger. The exaggerated make-up. The turbans. The glitter. Oh, the glitter.
For today’s look, I wanted to do something very Studio 54. Bold. Glamorous. And fun. Turban included. Tell me if you feel I achieved that.
(clockwise from top left) For the base, I used Truth followed by Flushed for the outer corners of the crease. I then lined my upper eyelids with Bondage and added Alchemy directly on the middle part of the crease.
(clockwise from top left) I created a double wing Cat Eye using Kat Von D’s Waterproof Autograph Pencil in Black Metal Love. Using Blanc, I lined half of my lower eyelid for some contrast. Next, I layered Metallic Bronze Glitter Make-up Gel over the Bondage liner I’d created earlier on to make my eyes pop. I also lined my lower eyelids with the same Gel. For the cheeks, I used a mix of Alchemy with Alien.
Tadah. My tribute to The Supremes and all things glittery. What do you think? Here are some really cool make-up looks I came across while researching the era. Which do you like best?
