It was all about glamour and clever contouring. The overall look was polished and it was the only time you'd see a perfect smokey eye with a red lip on a night out.
Foundation was matt and full coverage - the base needed to be immaculate. Eyes were contoured smokey most often in neutral brown, beige, black and eggplant finished off with a clean liner. Cheeks were contoured with a brown/bronze powder and lips were lined with a soft brown liner then filled with natural colour lipsticks. This type of makeup and tones used worked so well with the black & white images that were so popular.
