80’s Challenge!

Booooo to Mondays. I think it is embedded in our DNA to naturally despise Mondays. But this Monday, we (as in beauty bloggers) have something to look forward to! It’s our 80’s Challenge Post day!

I can’t say this was the easiest look for me to come up with. The 80’s isn’t one of those eras that fascinate me and I remember very little about it. After all, I was only 4 in 1989. I couldn’t find a look that fascinated me enough to want to replicate soooo my look has no real inspiration other than the bright and crazy colors of the 80’s! And as usual….whenever I want a bright look, I pull out those pigments and wet my brush. Nothin’ big but it was fun doing!

Are you peepin’ the crazy funky hair?

I used:


Eyes (all MAC unless otherwise noted):
Artifact paintpot
Delft paintpot
Fuschia pigment
Naval Blue pigment
Vanilla pigment
Clinque Eggplant Cream liner
L’Oreal Voluminous mascara

MAC tinted moisturizer

Check out the looks that my other beauty bloggin’ sisters have come up with. Are we fab or what?

    This is cute, dear!! I love your creativity! The hair is right up there with the 80’s as well. I’ve enjoyed looking at all the looks.

    OMG!! This was super hard for me as well. I knew I wanted to do a neon punk rock look but pulling it off was hard and I think I did just ok.
