1970's Disco Makeup

Hi everyone!
To continue with my ‘Makeup Through the Years’ series I thought I would take a look at makeup from the 1970’s in today’s post.
Disco music had a huge influence on makeup in this era with shimmery eyeshadows and frosty lipsticks being hugely popular. I love the 1970’s look as it is just so bright and colourful and great for a disco night out! If you fancy recreating this look yourself here are a few tips and tricks to help achieve the perfect disco look :) 
In the 1970’s, women strived to achieve a look of natural beauty and for the first time skin care routines became essential in order to accomplish a flawless complexion. The bronzed goddess look was hugely popular but tans were still kept natural. Clinique’s True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer is great for getting a subtle, healthy glow and is easy to blend and build up to get the level of bronze you are looking for. Peach and rosy pink were the colours of choice for blusher in this decade; I love Pink Cloud from Natural Collection and Nars blusher in Sex Appeal for this look. 

Bright, shimmery eyeshadows in blues and greens were applied for nights out and white eyeliner was often used to make eyes stand out even more. Black liner continued to be popular too and women would often smudge the liner out to get a smoky eye effect.  Avon’s Glimmerstick eyeliner in Black Ice contains small specks of glitter which is fab for a night out and creating a disco look. Urban Decay do some great eyeshadows for this look too; my favourites include Green Goddess (darkish green) and Summer of Love (bright blue).
Frosty pinks and peach shades were popular choices of lip colour during the 70’s with lots of lip gloss added for that extra shine. Revlon’s Lip Butter in Sugar Frosting teamed with Avon lip gloss in Sugar Cane gives a great frosty pale pink finish. If you’re going for peaches, Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Nude Pink and Revlon Super Lustrous lip gloss in Peach Petal are fab. 
The 70’s was all about disco and this look is one that you can be creative with. For a little extra glitz, add glitter to your cheeks or eyes for even more shimmer and sparkle. Barry M Dazzle Dust comes in a huge range of different colours and won’t break the bank :)
Have any of you guys recreated a 70’s disco look? Which products did you use to help turn you into a disco diva?

  2. I only manage to actually get up when I am meeting someone for a work out.
    Of course, when I get up, the initial point I do is verify my mobile,
    secretly hoping there is a text from my workout buddy stating she cannot make it.

  3. Indeed, I get your point in the TEF difference among these two amounts.
    But, isn't a 45% protein intake what you recommend? Therefore, it's not just for illustration, but is the consumption individuals must have for better fat reduction.

    I concur that protein intakes increased than the SAD (15%) are
    great for losing wt and keeping it off. But, again, I am curious on the way you settled on 45% protein?
    Why not recommend 60% as this would potentially elicit a 400% increase in TEF relative towards the SAD intake and
    most likely lower appetite even a lot more? Also, why not use a particular g/kg/day consumption recommendation instead of the % of
    energy. In accordance with Layman and others, the method based on size (total BW or lean
    tissue) is almost certainly the better strategy to keep the proper
    intakes when you'll find hypocaloric intakes.
