Love Child


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.


The palettes I used for eyes and cheeks were Vice 3 from Urban Decay as well as Smashbox Double Exposure.


(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.


Next the lips, my favešŸ™‚ I filled the entire lip with Nyx Butter Lipstick in Cotton Candy and then added Nyx Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink in the middle.


Tadah.Ā  My tribute to The Supremes and all things glittery.Ā  What do you think? Here are some really cool make-up looks I came across while researching the era. Which do you like best?


Love, Sheela

p/s Check out the turban!!! Gorgeous confections from Krystle.
