After seeing Fleetwood Mac this week at the Staples Center in LA, I had to do a post on Stevie Nicks.
Stevie is one of the original bohemian rock and roll queens, and her style and look back in the ’70s was as distinctive and inspirational as it is for any bohemian look today. I found this article title calling her “Best Hippie-Queen Earth Mother,” and in it, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine talks about the influence Stevie Nicks has had on her.
Here are some of my favorite images of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac.
Above is the back cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors album. The cover is so great. I especially love the dress and scarf worn by Christine McVie here most of all… this came out in 1977, and Chrstine’s outfit still rocks in my book! Sorry Stevie… but in this case, Christine’s look is inspired!

Other than fashion and long cool effortless looking hair, Stevie mostly kept her makeup simple, and it works for a bohemian look then and today as well. To create makeup look for yourself, begin with great skin. Having skin that is fresh and looks natural begins with skincare and then adding concealer where needed and foundation if you choose to use it. I have been using the Clarisonic cleansing brush and love the way it deep cleans my skin and gently exfoliates daily. Gentle exfoliation is a key to a great complexion. http://www.clarisonic.com
Next I suggest my facial serum Heir Atelier Ultimate Make Up Prep, which is a fantastic foundation primer that gives you a natural dewy finish that you can follow with foundation or if you prefer just add concealer where you need it.
Stevie looks like she may have only used Mascara in earlier years and then added eyeliner a little later. The image at the top of the post with the beret also looks like the inside rim line of her eyes is lined in either a flesh or white liner which makes the eyes appear larger.
Protip: That is a great makeup trick to try if you want to make your eyes look larger and be sure to use a flesh tone pencil for the most natural look.
Protip: If you are fair to medium like Stevie, use a dark brown Mascara and eyeliner that looks most natural. If you are darker in skintone or haircolor, you can wear black more easily and still look natural.
Follow the look with a lip gloss only to duplicate the look. Choose one that looks best for your skin tone and coloring to create your version of a Stevie Nicks bohemian-inspired look.
