70s makeup tips

Seventies beauty trends are pretty easy to replicate. The makeup was slightly more relaxed than the sixties, before working its way up to the colour explosion of the eighties.

There were four main staples to the looks.

Number One: A ton of bronzer

The seventies was the decade of bronzer. Over applied, and all over the cheeks. The golden goddess look was in.

Number two: Lower lashes

The trend that started in the sixties kept on going, and lower lashes were often more defined than upper lashes.

Warming up for the bold colours of the eighties, the seventies were also all about coloured eyeshadows, but they tended towards a softer pastel palette.
