70s Makeup Look with Rosie Fortescue

Rosie Fortescue - 70s Makeup - Look

One of my favourite trends at the moment is the 70s. I love the fashion and the whole ethos of the 70s, and there are so many gorgeous icons. In particular I love Farrah Fawcett’s style, and today I wanted to recreate some of her glamour and show you how it’s done.



One of Farrah’s most famous looks is her insanely gorgeous hair, which I tried to emulate in this look. I think the full-blown flicks might look a bit intense for everyday, but by using rollers on my hair and using a round brush it helps to create a lot of volume.

For my interpretation of the 70s style I wanted to have glowing and bronzed skin with a glossy lip and then a bronze eyeshadow and lots of mascara. I think the look is definitely similar to something Farrah would have worn in the 70s but it’s also really easy to wear today. For the base I used the Ole Henriksen Perfect Truth CC Cream, which is my absolute favourite at the moment because it makes your skin look so healthy and natural.

The 70s makeup look uses a lot of bronzer. A lot! I’m going to go slightly less heavy handed to make sure that this look is suitable for day-time, but I’m still so happy to incorporate the bronzed look into my makeup. I’m using the Dior Nude Tan Bronzer because it’s the perfect tone for my skin and helps to make it look like I’ve been on holiday even when I haven’t. Taking a big brush like the Real Techniques bronzer brush, I swirl the brush around the compact and then apply the bronzer on my cheeks and then also slightly on my temples and around my jaw. The focus of this look is on the cheeks, and bronzer replaces blush.

Something that Farrah wore a lot of was bronze eyeshadow. It goes so nicely with the rest of the makeup in this look, and is really flattering and easy to wear. For my eyes as well, it really helps them to stand out. I love the Diorshow Mono Eyeshadow in 653 Mordore, and I think it’s completely perfect for a 70s look. You can use different shades of bronze, but it’s also nice to keep things simple and just use a wash of bronze all over the lid.

The finishing touch is the glossy lip. It’s just so easy to slick it on, and it really completes the 70s glamorous look. One of my all time favourites is Dior Addict Lip Maximiser Collagen Activ, because it helps to make my lips look bigger!


Until next time,
