    Default Watch Joan Collins apply her own makeup (1980)

    I think this is about 1980 so she's about 47. Very pretty woman with or without makeup. She goes from a day to an evening/on television look. She knows her face and she knows how to apply. Raquel Welch also applied her own makeup. Her look isn't even that dated, it's come back. The false eyelashes, the smoky eye, top and bottom eyeliner. Even the blush and the bronzer (tho heavy handed) is what so many celebs wear now.

    So Joan Collins was always gorgeous with or without makeup. Now I have to find that book she did!

    Like all naturally beautiful women she has perfect bone structure. The rest is window dressing.

    She just put on more makeup than I do in a month. Looks fabulous on her, though. She looks amazing without it too. Bitch.

    She just does it so quickly! I'd have stuff all over my face if I tried to do that!

    never liked her makeup. Her face was always too light. She aged herself here with every brush stroke. It looked nice before she added the clown powder.

    Yes, they are too short and not nicely shaped. Also at 47, she had had at least one facelift. But she looked good and came across as charming in those days.

    I love her use of the gold on the eyes, just to give them a bit of 'pop'. I can make up very fast, too, and am a bit of a makeup whore. I LOVE cosmetics, and always love to glam up. I have better eye brows than she does, even though mine are nothing to write home about. I'd have left off the lip liner (not back as a younger girl though) but she probably has to use it because it keeps lipstick from feathering and spidering. I have a clear lip primer that helps a lot with that.

    I still think she's lovely, but I have to say, she does need to tone it down at her age now. Instead of being glamourous, she's heading into drag queen hag territory. Less is sometimes more.

    Joan discusses her makeup line on QVC and talks about Hollywood and makeup and a cute note from La Dame Liz.
