May 30, 2017 § Leave a comment
Let’s take a look at the History of Makeup: 1980s.
With heavy music influences like Cyndi Lauper and Madonna, makeup of the 80s was bright, colorful, fun and at times super heavy. Women of the 80s were confident individuals and it could be seen in their fashionable suits and bright makeup. Cosmetic companies were coming out with brighter eyeshadow palettes because the more colors the better became the mindset.
FACE: Unlike the previous decade, the face was completely covered with thick foundation and set by powder. The biggest trend during this time was blush! For the cheeks, women heavily applied different shades of blush (coral, pink, bronze or red) on an angle atop the hollows of the cheek, and all the way to the temples and sometimes even on the arches.
BROWS: Women opted for a thicker eyebrow than the years before.
EYES: Women were making very bold choices in eyeshadow with bright colors of blue, fuchsia, turquoise and even neon colors. Whether it was a single color or a mix of the rainbow, eyes were a really important part of makeup. Dark and thick eyeliner on both the top and bottom lash lines along with mascara really made the eyes dramatic.
LIPS: Bright colors were very popular in lipsticks especially glossy pinks, reds, oranges and fuchsia.
