70s and 80s Makeup: A Flashback

The 70s and 80s tend to get skipped over in makeup retrospectives. I'm oddly inspired by the decades' excess, extravagance, and all sorts of current-day rule breaking. My inspirations for these images were some of the late 70s/early 80s models: Gia Carangi, early Janice Dickinson. Their makeup was marked by dark earth tones, sculpted cheeks, and a lot of eyeshadow. For the 80s, I tried to do a fresh take on the baby blue eye makeup and frosty pink lipstick: I used navy blue to line Lauren's eyes and went with a more subdued nude color on her lips.
