For decades, Diana Ross graced the charts with unforgettable hits, while her inimitable style served as inspiration for brown girls everywhere. From her vivacious fro to her bejeweled frocks, she continues to inspire trends today and it only seemed right that we launch #BrownBeautyThrowback with one of her most iconic looks.

On the February 1970 cover of Ebony Magazine, Ms. Ross brought the drama with Kohl rimmed eyes, a clean brow and a set of lashes that defined the mod era. Recreate this statement look with these three easy (and affordable) beauty products.

  1. Coat your waterline with L’Oreal Paris’s Infallible Silkissime Silk Eyeliner. This product is sure to give you all the drama you desire, without the hassle.
  2. Frame your eyes with a pair of MAC Cosmetics lash strips in #33. These wispy lashes will help recreate the flirtatious look Ms. Ross has going on.
  3. To complete this look, define your brows with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo. This beauty bestseller will help you create a bold brow worthy of its own magazine cover.
