BEAUTY BAR: The Age of AQUArius

Whether you were around in the ’70s or not, there is no denying that it must have been one of the most exciting times to be alive. Not only for the culture, music and good vibes, but for the eye popping fashion trends as well. The ’70s seemed to be a bit of a free for all; with patterns that looked like something torn from your Grandmother’s sofa, afros and color combinations that certainly turned heads. Oh, and don’t think the crazy stopped at the clothing! If you take a look at vintage magazines and makeup ads, you can see it was reflected in makeup choices as well.

Summer is the perfect time to recreate the looks of the ’70s, release your inner flower child, and bring out your bohemian best, all while keeping a heat friendly look that won’t melt off! This Fashionista saved the fun for her eyes! When playing with colors as bold as these, feel free to stay neutral within your outfit to avoid feeling like a walking paint pallet. Black is always the answer.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Obviously your best friend when recreating this look is going to be the perfect aqua eye shadow. This Fashionista got hers from her NYX ultimate shadow palette, and kept the rest of her face looking naturally sun kissed with her perfect shade of foundation and bronzer. To top off the details, fill and shape your brows and add some dark wisp’s of mascara to tie it all together. Don’t be afraid to accessorize to match your makeup! Add a retro print headband to channel your inner ’70s style.
