The Best Makeup Tips The 80’s Have Given Us

FULL BROWS

Wild, natural brows are a trend in direct contrast to the Instagram brow. It adds a sort of boyish element to your overall makeup look and it’s easy to achieve. Take a small brow pencil like L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer and fill in your brow. Using a pencil helps mimic natural brow hairs. Then finish with a clear brow gel to brush up your brows and give that edgy vibe.

 

DRAPED BLUSH

Ladies in the 80’s loved to rock a full face. That means eyes, lips, and blush. Full-faced makeup is definitely a look that has come back but is a bit modernized. That’s where draping comes in. Thanks to Marc Jacobs, this technique is everything again. It sculpts your face to enhance your natural features, but instead of learning to contour like a Kardashian, all you need is blush.

Embrace similar color families where applicable or even utilize your lip product as your blush. I love to use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss on lips, then take a bit and tap onto the cheeks for a light flush.

 

HOT-PINK LIPS

Pink lips are another big trend happening right now. I love to take trends from different eras and modernize them. For this, the modern hack is utilizing matte formulas. There’s a great drugstore option: Collection Exclusive La Vie En Rose which features six pink shades that work for every skin tone, from deep to fair. When wearing pink lips, it is important to make sure your cheeks and lips are in the same family. They don’t necessarily need to be twins but should be related. The matte finish will make the look more anchored in the moment.

 

GLITTER

I love that you can embrace glitter in so many different ways. You can rock a full-on glitter lip or use your shadow to bring in different textures and shimmers. Choose a palette that features a couple different shades. Don’t be afraid to add a little glint to your look! Just be careful with loose glitter, especially if you are a contact lens wearer!
