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!

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
