2019 Examples of Epic 80s Makeup


It doesn’t matter the year you were born, you know ’80s beauty. The big hair, the crunchy bangs, the blue eyeshadow, the balls-to-the-walls blush: The era was all about more is more is more. Many of us who lived it (and have the yearbook photos to prove it) swore off the firm-hold hairspray years ago. Slowly but surely though, the eighties have been making their way back to the forefront of pop culture—from television (like Stranger Things) to fashion (hello, 1982’s leg-o’-mutton sleeves) and now to beauty. And dare we say it, after seasons of “nothing” hair and makeup being the thing, that maximalist approach to beauty is really starting to look fun.
