* Her makeup looks to be from a very distinctive period from the early 1970s. 1972-1975. Sparkly white or pale blue eyeshadow was used above and below the eyes, along with lots of black (or sometimes blue) mascara, or false eyelashes. Wet look natural lip gloss was also all the rage. The blonde singer from Abba (Agnetha, I think?) wore almost identical makeup when the band won the eurovision song contest with their song Waterloo in 1974 and, certainly in Europe, her look was copied everywhere. Eye makeup tended to be heavier before and after this period so I think there is a very good chance the photo was taken around 1974. Scroll down this link to see a pic of the Abba singer in 1974 in a blue hat, wearing almost identical makeup to our blonde girl. http://www.abbathemuseum.com/ ETA: My local florist sells cords that look exactly like the ones in the pic, but they're not cords, they're decorative willow branches in a pot. This is Germany though, no idea if that was ever an american idea of decoration.
