Retro Glam: The Seventies Reborn

July 3rd, 2011

Smokey eyes for brown eyes

In the Marc Jacobs spring/summer 2011 show, there was a clear message in the makeup:

“More is more”

and

“Everything in excess”!

The models faces gave off a distinctive retro vibe, signalling that the ’70s are back with a vengeance.

To replicate this look (and learn how to apply smokey eyeshadow and achieve a bitten-looking berry lip), watch the video tutorial below.

My top smokey eyeshadow tip! Always start with eye makeup, not base. If you apply your foundation first it is likely to be ruined by fallout. So, to save time and effort, begin with eyeshadow, then, clean up the area beneath the eye before you follow up with foundation.
