[B]ig hair, big shoulders, big time attitude. The style aesthetics of the 1980s were all about embracing the brash, bold outlook of the times. When it comes to beauty – this is the era that defined so much about glamour. From blush draping (introduced by eighties make up artist Way Bandy), to bushy brows (made iconic by Brooke Shields), the defining trends of the era have returned in full force this year, just in time for Joan Collins’ return to Dynasty.
Upping the ante with their campaigns like never before, the 1980s saw beauty brands showcasing their more is more looks on the in-demand faces of the time: with Isabella Rossellini at Lancome, Carla Bruni at Givenchy and Yasmin Le Bon at Guerlain. If you like your eye-make up high octane, and your lipstick turned up all the way up, then add our curation of 1980s make-up ads to your moodboard for an injection of serious glamour.
