    The ways 80s make-up was done depended on what part of the 80s. Early 80s very heavy make-up especially eyeshadow, mid 80s oh the high hair came in but we used thick eyeliner, a lot of mascara and lipstick, eyeshadow yes but not a lot. Late 80s very similar to the mid 80s but most of stop using blush. This may sound crazy but believe it or not it depend on what part of the 80s.

    I didn't grow up in the 80's but by the time I was 19 I was partying my ASS off at the old Club 35 in South Amboy, NJ and the Birch Hill Night Club in Old Bridge, NJ. That was the good old days. Dressed like Madonna in her Lucky Star video. Me and my friends dressed like that every weekend. That was the good old days. Plus met hubby back in 1987.

    I was a teen in the 80's we had not much foundation, usually just a spot concealer and then we only used powder with a flat sponge, NO BRUSHES for anything just sponge applicators for eyes hadows. There was not much choice wise. We NEVER lined our eyes with brushes as they did not exist and it was normal to use thick soft black kohl liner on inner water line OR mainly every one wore AZURE BLUE, ELECTRIC BLUE eyeliner and Mascara with a pink no17 lipstick that was pinkish irresdecent blue. We also did not wear false lashes. We used a horrid gawdy thick stripe of either tan or pink powder right across the cheeks in a line for blusher, totally over done. We did not use highlighter, it did not exist..well not here in the UK unless you were a Drag Queen. I miss them days! lol x Oh and we back combed our hair everyday, permed it and cut the side like mens side burns, really hideos and used so much hairspray everyone choked in the girls room lol.

    Nice, but it looks like I'd do this look to attend a concert of one of my favorite rock bands back then. My everyday junior high and high school look included lots of Aquanet to hold my high bangs (think Kelly Bundy) and of course I couldn't live without my fuschia lipstick! Also, at one point, I saved my money to get one of the coveted body wave perms which were popular as well.

    It’s funny to see a remake of 80’s makeup. I wish I had my teen photos. I was able to do Swim team everyday and my makeup never moved or came off. The eye makeup is too modern in style and only one color. Think rainbow would be more correct. Lip color is about right or a mauve. Bright Blue eyeliner in waterline and lower lash line.

    Not accurate, no one did their makeup this way in the 80s, bold colors yes ( depend of the event most everyday makeup was in neutral colors) but applied differently, no one looked clownish like in this video

    Good effort but in the 80s the make up wasn’t as good quality and pigmented like these days. Most people used cheap stuff from the chemists. Well I did anyway.

    This is bordering on Dale Bozzio from Missing Persons, and she was definitely an exception to your average makeup/hair routine. The look in this video is fine if you're going to an 80's party "lol, the mobile phones were so big, am I right?!" but in terms of integrating it into your daily routine..... ehhhhhh. I stand by what some other commenters said, I'd like to see a video done by someone who actually put on makeup in the 80's as opposed to learning to walk.

    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!

    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.
