Makeup History - 1980's. Girls just wanna have fun!!

No one screams 80's makeup more than Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Joan Collins & Boy George. And what a brilliant decade that was.........I was born!
The decade produced a distinct and powerful look.  Foundation was thick and offered full coverage often set by powder. Women wore heavy eye makeup in bold rainbow colours teamed with even heavier sculptured blush in coral, pink, bronze or red. Lips, all too often, came in bright pinks, reds and oranges. 
Madonna had a massive influence throughout the 80's and made heavy brows and beauty spots quite fashionable, with women frequently drawing on their moles and leaving their brows a la naturale.
