From her days with Ike Turner "rolling on the river," to her comeback career with the blockbuster Private Dancer album, Tina Turner is one of rock's most famous females and a true survivor. She's overcome adversity with a still-successful career, and pushing 70, she still has the best pair of legs around... And one of the most powerful voices ever. Dress up as one fierce female with a homemade Tina Turner costume!
Step 1: The first and most important thing you'll need is a Tina Turner wig. If you can't find a nice, long, spikey wig, then pick up a long, light brown one and doctor it yourself with some scissors, a comb, and hairspray. Cut some bangs and shorter (jaw length and graduatingly shorter pieces) layers on the topmost layer of hair. Back-comb the hair to make it fall in Tina's famous "What's Love Got to Do With It" style and use hairspray to keep it in place.
Step 2: Pick up a cute tankdress with either sequins or fringe. If you can't find a fringed one, get a plain, black tank dress and sew fringe on the top at the neckline and at the bottom hem for a fun effect.
Step 3: Put on your jean jacket for '80s style like Tina in her videos of the era!
Step 4: Nothing beats a great pair of legs. Show off yours with some pantyhose to give them a flattering sheen and high heels to give yourself a sexy curve to your calf muscles.
Step 5: A good makeup job is key! Not all of us have Tina's cheekbones, but they can be achieved through makeup. Suck in your cheekbones and apply blush along your cheekbone and a darker shade of bronzer in the hollows of your cheeks. Blend it a bit so you don't have an obvious line and dab a glimmery white cream or eyeshadow powder along the cheekbone itself to make them stand out. Voila! Instant Tina!
