If you want to learn more about the history of makeup, have a look at my FacePaint page

This is an experimental make-up session using the original (un-opened) Biba make-up from the early 70's. I had no idea what look I was going for when I started and just went with the flow. I have a huge selection of the original make-up so just put lots of shades on the make-up table and picked up various colours I felt would work as I went along.

I chose Claudia Devlin to apply this look to, not just because she's amazing but also because I feel she really fits the Biba aesthetic and her face really inspired me. Working with these products, developed using the technology of the late 60's, was an eye opener. No crease proof, long lasting formulations for a start. Also the very high pigment levels plus no silicones means a lot more blending!! Interesting enough once the make-up was finished all it took was one quick wipe over with make-up remover and everything was completely gone…this make-up was not designed to last!

I hope you enjoy watching this little bit of make-up history come to life!

I can’t guarantee that all of the make-up and skincare products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good having tried them on myself and my clients but everyone's skin is different and it's possible to be allergic to anything. Wherever possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.

I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me or sent to me by make-up companies to use in my professional capacity as a make-up artist for fashion and celebrity photo shoots, red carpet etc. I am also sent products by many of the top magazines to judge for awards.

I do not accept payment and am not sponsored to make any of the films on this channel. Some of the links under the videos and blog posts on my site are affiliated however and as stated before, I only feature products I like, or want to try.

    Still have my Biba eye shadows in deep purple black and magenta shades, my Biba crayons, and lip sticks. All glorious shades of deep purple/blue hues and I do wear them. Haven’t ruined my skin.

    I think what makes this look so fashionable is that the eyebrows are left untouched. Were Lisa to shape them I think it would look like she was trying too hard, but this look is bold but also incredibly chic. I wish this was acceptable to wear in public XD

    I was around in the 70’s and wore a lot of her (Biba) make-up, in fact, I had several of these eye shadows, especially the lavender (we just said “purple” back then), and also her yummy blushes! and we weren’t afraid to color our cheeks with them, either. We LOVED our blushes!!! 🤗

    Miss the make-up we had back in the 70’s. I still have a few items in the back of my drawers. A few perfumes, too. Could never bring myself to toss them out.

    They don’t make make-up today like they used to. Didn’t realize back then that we had it so good. Thanks again for this great video trip down memory lane. 😘

    I remember having a “china doll” blouse like what the model is wearing when I was in high school. Wore it with jeans. Ahhh the 70’s. Loved that era. Disco, long straight swinging hair, angel sleeves and Steely Dan. Gas was 25 cents a gallon and my friends and I used to sneak into clubs and drink grasshoppers and brandy alexanders. Those were the good ol days.

    Can I be real? ‘Instagram’ makeup only looks good on specific eye and face shapes and it feels lile if you can’t look instagram perfect your makeup isn’t good or worth it… What happened to originality and fun with makeup? 🙁

    I still have my crayons from Biba in Kensington High Street. They are almost completely used, but I kept them so much I love them. I didn’t realize they were vintage! I don’t know how many years I used them! I never had a skin problem because of them, lucky me! 🙂 I am still using a Mary Quant palette from the same period that I love so much too!
    I certainly miss this big department store, I loved going there…
