Bold Experimental Colors from Christian Dior – 1971 –
Not so long ago, a woman could achieve a new look by simply following the latest fashion trends and changing the color or style of her hair. Now make-up is playing an increasingly important part in the look of the ‘seventies’ and is designed to compliment and complete today’s fashion.
To illustrate – here are some make-ups created at Christian Dior’s Paris Salon; some are soft and muted, others bright and striking, and one is just for fun !
Subdued or Vibrant Face –
The choice is yours. The soft look (left) combines natural eyebrows and shimmery blue lids with pale, dewy lips. By contrast, the striking look (right) has pencilled brows, blue-mauve eyeshadow, cherry-red lips, and vivid cheeks.
Dramatic or Demure Face –
The toning on the left face give a warm glow to a dramatic look. the use of gold and olive shadow accentuates the finely etched brows and the bright, glossy lips add a splash of color to the pale face.
To the right – the demure gentle face has an almost fragile look with delicate color for eyes and lips and the faintest blush to the cheeks.
Finally – a galaxy with a difference – a real fun face guaranteed to stop traffic, heavenly and worldly.
That’s all !
