The inspired makeup look of the 1980's.

Hello Dolls!!!



The 80's era is very colorful and fun. The faces were heavily painted, a lot of emphasized were placed on the eyes, cheeks and lips and a lot of colors were used. The blending was not a practice time of this period. What you can see on the 80's is the color black eye shadow all up to the eyebrows. This era is the time when a lot of colorful combination smoky eye were born and became widely used. The 80's were such a contrast compare to the 70's which were focused more on delicate, glowing features, very natural boho style look. Some women actually opted for a foundation that was a little bit lighter than their natural skin tone. The reason being is because it allowed all the colors that were using on the face to really pop out.

There is one think that you have to remember of the 80's is the accurate name OTT- Over The Top. "If your makeup doesn't look half way clownish then you haven't accomplished the look yet".

Other famous beauties were Claudia Shiffer, Cindy Crowford, Brooke Shields or Lady Diana Spencer who as the Princess of Wales became one of the icons of fashion and beauty also. In the 80's the athletic and slim figure became fashionable propagated by Jane Fonda as a style of TV series like "Dynasty" or "Dallas".
