Colours and Highlights

The bigger and brighter the better! In the 80s, it was all about powerful colours and statement highlights. Think rosy pink, gorgeous blues, fabulous purples and vibrant neon yellows. One great way to enjoy a blast of colour without going too crazy is with dip dye. This will add a unique edge to your style; a great multi-dimensional look that makes you stand out.

Makeup in the 80s was just as bold and vibrant as the hair. Pinks, purples and blues were the shades of choice for cheeks and lips, with a mix of subtle contouring and make-up artistry to really make the look pop. Eyeshadow palettes featuring bright blues were a key part of the look, with shades ranging from a gentle sky blue to a bold navy. The key here was to apply it from lashline to brow to really get that high-impact effect.
