Recreating Miss 1975 – Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson (Review)

Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Miss 1975

So in the video, Charlotte uses  Eyes to Mesmerise in Bette and Veruschka. Perhaps one day in the near future I will pick those up, but I thought Mona Lisa would do better for me long term and would appear similar to the model in the photo, taking into consideration my skin tone. To recreate this look, I used Eyes to Mesmerise in Mona Lisa ($32.00) on my lids. I started out applying it with my finger, which is just fine! In the first photo above, I used three layers of it: two with my finger and one with an eyeshadow brush. This wasn’t because I thought the finger application was inadequate, I just wanted to see if there was a difference in application. The second time and third time (the pictures with curly hair) I wore Mona Lisa, I only used two layers. I really didn’t see any difference in application or longevity when applied with a brush versus my finger so have at it!

The Matte Revolution lipstick in 1975 Red ($32.00) was a bit of a surprise for me. It’s described as a “sunset red” and comes off on me as very orange. And it is bright! I wore this look to work; two people told me they loved this lip color… well actually three but the third said although they liked it, it was different in an aggressive way. I generally wear bright lipsticks to work, so this wasn’t an uncommon circumstance. Either way, I thought it would be more like my Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw, but it’s definitely got more orange undertones.
