FOTD: 80's Makeup Inspiration

 I randomly came across the photoshopped image of 80's makeup above while working on my 80's music playlist and fell in love with the sharp lines and oddball color placement of it. I was stuck at home on a Friday night battling an awful cold, so I gave it a try using REAL makeup. What better to do than play with makeup & listen to Journey right? I'm pleased I was able to keep my lines relatively clean, which isn't always the easiest thing to do :)



Keeping with the 80's theme, I stuck to using mainly the 88 Color Matte Eyeshadow Palette and 88 Color Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette.You can purchase these on ebay, BH Cosmetics, Coastal Scents etc. They're all the same generic palettes. It's not the quality of say MUFE or MAC, and honestly I don't use them often, but for 20 bucks and if you need some colors in a pinch or are just getting in to makeup they're nice to have on hand.
