When you're wondering what to wear to school, the '70s is a great decade to look back on for amazing fashion inspiration. Other than introducing some of the best fashion trends we're currently loving, the seventies also introduced some of the best beauty trends that are relevant and useful even up to this day! So bring out your brushes and your makeup kits and get your groove on with these '70s beauty trends you need to tick off your beauty bucket list!  

Center-parted locks

Changing the way you part your hair is an easy way to refresh your look in under a minute. Part your hair at the center for a classic, but always on-point hairstyle.

Healthy glow

Strobing may be a thing of the oughties, but going for a healthy glow has been the beauty goal of every seventies gal, too. So bring out your highlighters and strobing creams and get lit!


Bold lips

Just like the modern girl, the seventies gal was also bold when it came to lippie shades! Grab your boldest lip color and paint it red, now!

Braidy bunch

Curls are cool, and straight hair is chic, but throw a braid party to add some fun and spunk into an otherwise gloomy day.

Graphic eyeliner

These days makeup trends are getting bolder than ever, but this fierce makeup trend started way back in the '70s! Replace your go-to cat-eye flick for a strong graphic eyeliner art instead. What do you say?

Bronzed cheeks

Nothing beats a classic pinkish glow, but a sun-kissed glow is perfect for our tropical country! Plus, it looks natural and effortless, too!

Pastel Eyeshadow

Smokey eye and brown lids may be versatile, but it won't hurt to add some fun to your peepers with cute pastel eyeshadows! Go for cool lilacs, girly pinks, or baby blues for a fun and cute eye game.


The "Farrah"

If loose curls and messy waves are the go-to hair of every 2010s girl, feathered hair was every girl's hair peg back in the seventies. Swap your usual curls for this light 'do for a total '70s flashback!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
