The early ’70s are known as the disco era. Along with the foot-tapping tunes and fun outfits, the decade was famous for its diverse beauty looks! Farah Fawcett, Janice Dickinson and Jerry Hall were some of the iconic models of the ’70s, and they showed beauty in a completely new light! Follow these steps to emulate their looks.

Step One

If the ‘60s were all about mascara, then the ’70s were all about eye shadow! Prime your lids and sweep on a pearlescent eye shadow in a pastel shade. Baby pinks, pale blues and light greens are your best pick.

Step Two

Rosy cheeks are a large part of the ’70s style. For an authentic look, run two stripes down your cheeks, starting from the temple. A stick formula is ideal to help you achieve this look.

Step Three

While this decade had its fair share of red lips, neutral shades were truly all the rage. Swipe on a glossy peach or a creamy pink lipstick to get the natural look.

Step Four

Go one step further to get an extremely accurate look! Today’s thick brows were an absolute no-no, so it’s imperative to tweeze your eye brows into a skinny, curved line.
