    This is so creative. I love the use of news pieces in the background amongst the electronic music. Very effective! Amazing! I subscribed and liked! 💯

    Makeup was great but I think it would of looked more 80's if you had a tight slicked back bun with a sidepart. Your bangs still looked modern but other than that great!

    We didn't wear it quite that heavy. This was more like the style of music videos.
  14. I never wore makeup anything close to that in the 80z, not as a model, a school girl or ever. Mostly it was much more toned down. Colored mascara was a thing that cosmetic companies tried to push. No girl I knew ever bought a 2nd tube bc it was ugly. Early 80s was a bit like Instagram, minus heavy highlighter. Later 80s, matte and eartones were big on eyes, brows were heavy and lips were red. I graduated in 87 and mo one wore makeup. The bright pink lipstick waa a thing in the early 80s, but applied much more softly. And only girls with no sense of style wore blush that btmright and thick. Nice try, but missed nearly every mark.

    Check out the link of Christina Applegates photos of 80's hair. I wore my hair exactly like hers. I should do a video of a real 80's hair style. https://www.google.com/search?q=christina+applegate+80%27s&safe=images&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjC7dH9wZbWAhVIllQKHZ6cAkMQsAQIKg&biw=1536&bih=760

    Love the make-up! Very pretty. The hair isn't quit right I'm an 80's girl and I never wore my hair with a messy style. it had a styled look. Christiana Applegate nailed it. Look at her hair in the photos online.

    I definitely will try this beautiful make up with my fav brush! I got it from here )> https://getpocket.com/s/MHfsG It have a best texture (actually soft) and great quality. Its quite difficult to discover a good brush in my location, so I really pleased with my brush due to the fact that it has complimentary shipping. My search for a brush is lastly over, you must buy for yourself too!

    This is more of an "80s magazine model" makeup and hair look than what we actually wore back then. The colors are correct and the big hair concept as well, but we really went to town on teased bangs and big earrings as well. Aqua Net was 50 cents a can, $1 for the large can, and you went through one large can a week on your hair. The side hair is right, but this look has no bangs. Also try curling or crimping and then teasing for a more authentic look. Again, this is more like what you saw on fashion magazine models than real women in the 80s.

    Not quite 80's the hair needs to be teased more with loads of aquanet in the purple can, plus the women back then didn't use so much makeup all that is needed is lipstick,eye liner, mascara, eye shadow up to the brow bone, and maybe a little blush.

      +ThePinkFloydPortal The only ones I remember, wearing that much eye shadow, other than the drastically insecure, were the ones in pop videos & stage acting. The hair on top was teased a fair bit higher. But there were a few who would have pushed it beyond limits, if they could have....

      They used a hell of a lot of blush and colourful eyeshadow as well as bright or frosty lipstick! One of my favourite decades! I wish I lived through it, but sadly I was born to late :/
