The Funky 80s Makeup Look!

Don't be shy here. 80s makeup is about plenty of gorgeous rich colours. Go for blues, pinks, purples and greens!

Makeup can be expensive, and you certainly do not want to be spending big dollars on your 80s makeup, if you are just dressing up in for 80s fancy dress! You'll probably never use most of it again!

As always, start by asking friends and family, like aunts, who may have leftover makeup which they never threw out, from their 70s and 80s eras. Score!

Secondly, chemists, drug stores and the cheapie dollar shops actually carry a huge range of gowdy colours and are really cheap.

I saw some gorgeous eye makeup pallettes just the other day which would be perfect. These were fun, bright, 80s colours, for only a few dollars. The one I saw was about $5.

Chances are, you may have a suitable lipstick, in a bright red, or a pretty pink. Also, Nana's coral lipstick from the 60's came back in fashion, when Dirty Dancing and Back to the Future were released.

You won't need to spend much money on your 80s make up, and you'll get plenty of bang for your buck!

  • Black or bright cobalt blue eye liner
  • Pink, blue, purple and green eye shadow
  • Red or pink lipstick
  • Bright pink blush
  • Blue nail polish
  • Look at the division of colour in the photo, and pile on your colours.

    An example maybe to colour your eyelids with blue, pink on your upper eyelids, and purple or green on your outer part of your eye.

    Eyeliner is definitely required, especially on the inside of the lower part of your eye, and the top of the eyelid. You will have to pull down your under eye and look up, as you apply the eyeliner. It may feel a bit uncomfortable while you are applying the eyeliner, however remember, eyeliner was always a must of the 80s.

    For your blush, like I said earlier, unless if you already have pink blush, use some pink lipstick. Woila! beautiful!

    With your makeup, make sure you pile on plenty of eyeliner, blush and use a dark red lippy.

    Ooops, don't forget your beauty spot!!! (Use a black eyeliner to create the dot just above your lip.)
