“My new colours for Autumn are very dull”, says Mary Quant. “But you’ve never seem such great dull colours before”. It’s funny, I almost bypassed this ad because it WAS rather dull! Mary Quant was probably ahead of her time when it came to earthy shades of makeup (and clothing). The 70s were very flashy and colorful, and this just didn’t match the vibe of the time. I do love the smoky eye here. Wow. It is spectacular, and this makeup trend didn’t really catch on until the early 2000s.
