    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!

      harambe Yes it was. Unless you were a musician, or wore alternative fashion, no one wore bright makeup. And if somone would wear a blue or a pink once in a while, it was nothing at all like this.

    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.

    I'm sorry, good effort but this is not 80s... This is a contemporary attempt to look like the 80s. The makeup you're using is too modernised and contemporary. You need more of a 'cheap' look.

    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 :/

    This makeup tutorial was lovely...as a tutorial from an 80's music video....but us real people, like a few have said, did not wear our makeup that way. Sure we liked pink blush and blue eyeshadow but I don't ever remember lining the tightline of my eye or lining above. I used a blue eyeliner inside the bottom waterline. We sure did have big silly hair though. A little more research needed on this one, but a good effort x

    Indeed this is fairly liberal interpretation of the era. Mostly colour accurate. When creating this we were still working more with the channel concept rather than the actual makeup. But there will be more 80s and other era celebrations to come. And there was more than ONE haircut in the 80s hehe. Anyway, great feedback from everyone!

    ahhh, I little off there, funny what people think the 80's fashion was.  Makeup not bad, but that hair.  It was much more that just teasing it into a mess.  If was teased into a style, not just mess, DUH

    Agreed with the others this is more of a modern take on the 80s, your hair needed to be very curly and poofy and brows were kept a little thicker than that and less defined. You're gorgeous nonetheless :)

    I wish someone that grew up in the 80's would do a tutorial.  This girl did a good job from what she knows from the 80's, but it isn't accurate.  I think the kids look at pictures of famous people back then, like Madonna and think that is what everyone looked like.  I would like a tutorial on what the majority of teenagers dressed and looked like back then.  Maybe I'll do one of my own?  ha ha.

      The colors are fairly accurate, the application isn't. I was in elementary/middle school in the 80's, so not (really) wearing make-up, but I feel like this is more of a modern (albeit really great) look with retro colors. Also, the hair--it needs a huge, lacy, floppy bow and then it may lean more toward 80's.

    makeup is not of the age of the 80s, we do not use outlined cat eyes, either liquid eyeliner, false eyelashes either, but the mascara was colors like blue, purple or green
