    Bored of the barely-there make-up looks that have dominated the catwalks for so long? Then you will love the glamorous makeover the ‘70s trend is giving fashion right now.

    The disco era gifted girls of the ‘70s with dramatic cat eye flicks and vibrant colour – and now it’s our turn to try out the decade’s covetable pin-up look. If you’re after some inspiration, look to Jerry Hall, Debbie Harry and Bianca Jagger to help you achieve the right look.

    For a strictly ‘70s take on the trend, you will need a bright pop of colour on your peepers. Eyeko’s Making Eyes Gel Eyeliner in Midnight Blue is a foolproof way to add dramatic colour to your eyes. Simply sweep across the eyelid, as high as you dare and finish with a hint of the Visual Eyes Liquid Eyeliner by Eyeko, which will make quick work of ‘70s flicks.

    For a more modern take on the trend, opt for a dark and smoky eye that will still achieve the same effect as liquid eyeliner. The Me and My Shadow Eyeshadow by Alexa Chung for Eyeko is so easy to use, thanks to the built in blending brush, which allows you to control how far you take this iconic look.

    For a stronger finish, stick to liquid eyeliner and channel ‘70s pin-up and all round screen siren, Raquel Welch. All you need is a slick of Lord & Berry’s Ink Glam Liquid Eyeliner in Black to achieve a sexy curve the Bond girl would be proud of.
