Makeup from the 80s

We love the Eighties! The crazy clothes, the big hair, the shoulder pads and the makeup - the looks are big, bold and bright! 80s fashion standouts include wacky neon jelly bracelets, jelly shoes in every color of the rainbow, converse sneakers, leg warmers, leggings and big floral prints - they're all back again for a retro flashback. The 80s were all about making a statement and the most popular beauty looks were not for the faint at heart. Get ready to go boldMadonna in the 80s - the strong eye makeup and bright pink lips and blush paired with teased hair.

A good rule to remember about 80s beauty trends - the brighter and bolder - the better! You can pick one feature to highlight but don't be afraid to go bright on both lips and cheeks or eyes, the key to getting the look right is to experiment with colour.

Bright eyeshadow

You can wear this look night or day - just use a lighter hand for daytime. Anything goes and all that is needed is a bright eyeshadow and an eyeshadow brush. Apply to your eyelid and gently blend it out a little bit so it fades out as it gets further away from your eyelashes. You can also take a small pointed eyeshadow brush and lightly smoke the same colour underneath your eye for a bolder look or for evening.

Neon lips

They key to getting this look right is well-moisturized lips. You definitely don't want bright neon-hued lipstick sitting on chapped lips! You can go orange, pink or red and any shade in between. You can tell it's bright enough if it's a true orange, pink or red - there should be no brownish undertones and it should definitely not look "natural". To get a really cool 80s look, pair neon lips with some brightly coloured eyeliner!

Coloured eyeliner

Brightly coloured eyeliner looks just as 80s as bright eyeshadow but is slightly more subtle. It's best to pick a kohl eyeliner as they are much smoother and easier to glide on than other pencils. A gel eye-liner and brush also is better than just a regular pencil and gives you an added bonus of making the line as thick or as thin as you like!

Doll face blush

Blush was worn to be seen in the 80s and was often worn in "racing stripes" on the cheeks. A bright pop of colour in a peachy orange or pink is perfect for achieving this look. If you layer cream blush under powder blush, the colour will look even bolder and the added bonus is that it stays on longer too!

I have ALOT of friends. I used to have one BFF but she ditched me. After that, I couldn't trust people. I started making more friends so someone would be there for me and I would be there for them. Now, I don't have a BFF. Just a ton of close friends, which I like. But I don't know if I made the right choice of doubting everyone or not.

I'm like my mom and my brother is like my dad, but I can't talk back to my mom because it's rude, even if I wanted to. I will always love my family, though. no matter what. My parents used to be strict, but not anymore too much.  When I was in trouble, it was my mom I was afraid of to face but if I was going to get punished, i was afraid of them from my dad.
