BEAUTY SPARK: 70s ‘Greaser’ Look

written by Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

Forget prim and proper, these girls rocked an edgy 70s “greaser” look. Imagine Rizzo on the runway and you will have the look for the new PPQ show. Makeup Artist Sam Bryant for Lancôme and hairstylist David Bailey was inspired by a David Bailey photo of Twiggy. So they created a seventies rock slut look reminiscent of “I just left Studio 54”.

I love that Duffy used lots of hair extensions to add thickness to a side parted hair and created exaggerated plaits which covered the models. Bryant gave the models a dark eye on light glossed skin prepped with Flash Retouched concealer as a foundation. On the lids he primed it with Laque Liner in Pure Black, and blended it with a black eye shadow from an Ombre Absolue Duo compact, and finished with Hypnôse. On the lips he used very lightly-Color Fever Gloss in 212.

Now this is a look that I don’t mind seeing the edgier girls rock. It’s definitely a look that many girls can relate to and execute. Roll out of bed the next morning, throw on some ready to wear couture, and out the door look is what best describes it to me.
