...in terms of exercise methods, makeup usage, etc.
I'm very interested because I think some of the most beautiful black models/singers/etc. were popular during those times, and I'm interested in learning what they did that was so different to what we do today. That's not to say that many women of today are not beautiful. However, I'm more into "'70s beauty."
My mother was 17-18 in 1979, and she was (and still is) absolutely stunning. I asked her what she did that was so different to what women do today, and she told me that she wore barely any makeup. She was a cheerleader for 2-3 years in high school. She also said that her mother never let her eat fast food because eating at home was much more important than it is today.
Anyway, what other comparisons can you all make??
