Monday, March 31, 2008



I was born in 1982, and naturally I have always loved the 80's. Listening to the Bangles with my mom, using her hairbrush as a microphone and pretending her bed was the stage. I remember jelly sandals, stirrup pants, leggings under skirts, and of course, bright colored makeup and big hair. And who can forget the coming of "New Kids on the Block"??!

So for the 80's look, I just did really bright makeup and bold pink lips since that was "in" during the 80's, I did a slight teased poof with my bangs.

It was just for FUN, and I would never wear this out, LOL.

Right eye with black eyeliner on waterline, left eye without for comparison...

What I used:

- Monistat Chafing Gel as primer
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer in NC30
- Silk Naturals Foundation

- MAC "Dollymix" Blush


- MAC "Violet" Pigment applied wet on lower half of the lid and lower lashline
- MAC "Bright Fuchsia" Pigment (PRO PIGMENT) applied wet and dry on outer-V and contour
- Makeup Forever (MUFE) eyeshadow #26 applied on outer half the lid and contour, as well as lower lashline
- MAC "Your Ladyship" Pigment as highlight
- Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner in Black
- L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
- Glitter stars I had lying around....


- MAC Mattene Lipstick in "Immodest"
- Lancome Lipgloss in "Seashell"

MeaganMonster said...

Oh love it!
I'm an 80's baby myself.

The complete look might not be safe for everyday but for theme parties or Halloween it would be great!

If I was the type to still go to clubs I'd totally wear the eye makeup out on a Friday night.

I LOVE your blog Vanessa. I only just found it the other day, but I think I'll be a regular reader now!
