1970s get the look - Diana Ross bridal beauty

1970s get the look - Diana Ross bridal beauty: Image 1 Welcome to part three of our beauty time machine trip. This week, we've brought you to the 1970s to show you how to perfect Diana Ross' iconic style for your big day.

1970s get the look - Diana Ross bridal beauty...

A 1970s’ bride needs shimmer and glam, and a pop of colour all tastefully done, as Diana Ross would have back in the glamourous era of the seventies.

Kent bridal make-up artist, Kelli Waldock, shares how you can achieve this show stopping look for your special day.

MAKE-UP

  • Stay hydrated on the lead up to your big day, and use a light moisturiser on your face and neck.
  • Add a good quality primer all over your face as a base for the foundation.
  • Use your favourite foundation to create a flawless finish that is dewy and not matte.
  • Add primer to the eye lids after the foundation.
  • Create a blue-grey smoky eye over the lids; bringing the colour beneath the lower lid from the corner of the eyes.
  • Add gold metallic shadow to create depth, then blend this gold shadow into the smokiness, but keep more intense colour in the centre of the lid.
  • Apply lots of mascara to the upper and lower lids, and then apply big flirty lashes that flick up and out.
  • Coral lips are a lovely colour for this look, but you can also go for a bright fuchsia-pink if this suits your wedding theme better.
  • Ensure the blush is subtle but tonal with the chosen lip colour.
  • If you want even more disco edge, add gloss to the lips and dab gold liquid liner to the lower lids of the eyes.
  • Remember bridal looks need to be slightly subtler than the original retro beauty to avoid it looking over the top. But you can go wild with the ultra-glittery nails... metallic works as do deep and earthy shades combined with vibrant pops of colour such as orange.

HAIR

The hair is big. This look was achieved by working on the natural afro hair of the model, and teasing out the tight curls. For non-afro hair, use a crimper and keep a centre parting with a flower accessory to achieve an iconic seventies look, perfect for halter neck dresses or big sleeve key hole styles and plunging necklines.
