Makeup History - 1970's PEACE!

Ok, so far you've been taken through 5 decades of what I can only describe as extraordinary changes in makeup, not only in the application but the changes that took place thanks to much research and development!

Bridgette Bardot, Blondie, Jerry Hall, Farrah Fawcett, Charlie's Angels and the Bond girls all epitomise what the 1970's represented. 
The tanned, bronzed look was the hit of the decade with lots of shimmer on the eyes in blue, green and brown. To define the eye black liner was applied and smudged out to create a smokey effect and eyebrows were groomed thin in an arch shape. Cheeks were contoured and highlight was used to accentuate the cheekbones. Lips were quite natural in colour but the finish was high gloss.
Flower Power!!
