Makeup Monday: How to do 80's makeup

rsz_80sredoThe 80's was pretty much that era where anything went. Big hair was in (for guys and girls), Clothing was outrageous, and the makeup well, the more the merrier. Seriously it took a village to put it on and take it off. I should know I did this look two days in a row. I have to say though that I'm super fond of all this makeup, its fun and colorful and well, you can basically look like a clown and still get compliments all night. If you have any 80's party's coming up, as we did (hence this tutorial) or you want something easy for halloween this look would be like so super rad!

Step 1: As with all tutorials start with a bare eye. I used primer on my lid to make sure the colors popped and helped them stay all night long. 

Step 2: I used two different blues with this look, The lighter blue I used for the base on my eye lid. Apply it to the lid not going any higher than the crease. 

Step 3: This is were the darker blue comes in. Apply the darker blue to the crease and the outer corner of the eye, then you blend these colors as well as you can. 

Step 4: Take a white eyeshadow and apply it right under the brow bone, this gives you depth to your look and it will catch the light as well. Then take a purple eyeshadow and apply it right above the darker blue shadow and bring it to the outer corner as well and below the lower lash line. You then need to blend the colors together. 

Step 5: If you have it, take a purple eyeliner and line your lower lash line. Note: If you do not have any don't fret, you can always add more purple eyeshadow to your lower lash line. 

Step 6: Take a black eyeliner (pencil or liquid) and line your upper lash line, seriously the more the better. For some reason ladies in the 80's loved black eye liner.

Step 7: You then want to take a black and purple eye shadow and go over the eye liner with the same color. The powder over the liner will absorb the liner guaranteeing that it stay all night. Next if you have an aqua colored eye liner feel free to use it now. Line the the lower water line of your eye. This makes your eyes stand out and adds that awesome 80's look to your eye.

Step 8: Curl your lashes and apply about 10 coats of mascara! Ok maybe not that many but 9 will do. Ladies in the 80's were never short mascara so put as many coats as you want to feel satisfied!

Step 9: Blush is a must, take a fuchsia blush or a hot pink color and apply liberally to the apples of the cheeks as well as going up into the hair line.  

Step 10: This is my favorite part, THE LIPS! Just apply a hot pink or fuchsia color to your lips (no need for gloss) and voila your gonna look like the bombdiggity! 

Crimp and tease your hair as big as you want and have fun with it ladies, I guarantee you can't mess this look up! Yeah like totally!
