Gorgeous and rich!
Now that we've crossed over the threshold of New Year's resolutions, and your healthy skin-care regimen is in full throttle, it's time to up your glamour quotient. Take a cue from the sirens of the '70s silver screen to elevate your look to colorful new heights. Think toasty tones of chocolate, coffee, or cocoa, paired with shimmers of cinnamon and chestnut, or highlights of sunny hues from golden ginger to tawny terra-cotta. Right now these smashing shades are in demand!
How can you pull them off? First, look back to the 1975 rags-to-riches story Mahogany for inspiration. Motown diva Diana Ross, in the title role, revealed how the right touch of dramatic eye color can look so supremely gorgeous! Then fast-forward to this year's Golden Globe-awarded musical, Dreamgirls, in which Beyoncé showcases this retro look.
MAC cosmetics joins in the celebration of celluloid beauty by teaming up with '70s sex symbol and screen legend Raquel Welch. The limited edition collection, complete with tiger-print packaging, reflects her iconic image as a strong, sultry, and exotic temptress. Get into the act with shades of Primal (dark brown), Aria (neutral beige), and Fake (pinkish brown). Your look will roar with glamour.
Look like the star you are as you celebrate Black History Month!
