Looks Of The Decades: 1980’s

During this decade, many rules were broken in terms of makeup. A rainbow of makeup colors became popular throughout the 80’s, as the era of the dazzling disco was born. Colored eye shadows and liners were popular, along with glitter and iridescent powders.

Beauty is back: harder, tougher, and more glamorous than ever before. Perfectly groomed, polished, and forever youthful women portrayed in television shows like Dynasty and Dallas, captured the ‘look’ of the woman in this lavish and opulent decade. Brook Shield’s thick defined eyebrows create one of the strongest trends of the 80’s. Applied with heavily bold strokes, bright pastel eye shadows, colored mascara, fuchsia pink blusher all over the cheek, and bright matte lipstick complete the look.

In the following photo, I used a hot pink shadow and a purple color eye pencil, in addition to a lot of mascara and black pencil inside the eye. I applied dark pink blusher and bright hot pink lipstick. I filled the eyebrows with a light brown eye shadow to make them look thicker, and then I brushed it up.
