What was makeup like in 1970's?
Women loved using white eyeliner in the 1970's as well as black.
If using black, remember to apply it as you would any eyeliner, but
smudge it for a smoky effect. Also, apply it beneath the bottom
lashes as well. Remember, lots of shimmer! Blue, green, brown, the
eyeshadows were all about shimmery effect. There were eye shadows
that claimed to have crushed fish scales in them to really make
them shine. The eyeshadow was used underneath the lashes as well as
on top of the eyelid. To enhance this, apply brown eyeshadow right
beneath the brow bone, in the crease of the eye. Don't forget to
put a little white shimmer right beneath the eyebrow. For the
cheeks, gel blush was very popular, anything that could be applied
with the fingertips to the cheeks was considered stylish. For
blondes, use pinks and mauves; for brunettes, use a coral pallette.
You can achieve this effect by using Max Factor's Lip Finity, or
any similar lip stain or regular lipstick. Pressed powder on the
face was not used because it cancelled out the effect of the
shimmer. Lips were all about shine with a tint, which is still
available in every makeup department. No lip liner. Earthtones were
also very popular and remember, tans were in! The darker the tan
the better, so get out your bronzer before applying blush and
