The 1980’s often gets a bad rap for being one of the worst decades for fashion and beauty looks but it wasn’t all awful. Yes, there was a lot of shoulder pads and streaky blush but there were numerous pretty beauty looks we’d love to see come back in style. It is the perfect time to try out an 80’s-inspired look because the new Jem and the Holograms movie comes out today. Jem and the other band mates’ makeup is perfect for parties but if you want an 1980’s makeup look you can wear everyday, check out the the looks below for inspiration.

Madonna experimented with some more daring beauty looks in the ’80s but you can definitely copy this look. The matte red lip and groomed brows are simple and timeless. You can even incorporate a wet-look hairstyle to mimic her actual wet hair.

2. Sleek Updo and Strong BrowsYasmin Le Bon

If you didn’t know that this was a cover from the 1980’s, you could think that it is a recent one given the modern-looking makeup and the fact Yasmin Le Bon doesn’t age. The slicked back hairstyle is the perfect way to highlight the natural dark brows and berry lip tint.

3. Red Lips and Gold HighlightBeverly Johnson Red Lips

Remember Beverly Johnson’s beauty look the next time you are going out because it is stunning but also easy to recreate. All you need is a glossy red lip and a gold highlight on your brow bone. Then draw on some black liner on the bottom lashes and smudge it up into the outer corners of the eye. The flower in your hair is optional but you could definitely pull it off.

We are all about matte lipsticks at the moment but we need to appreciate glosses more. Just look at Isabella Rossellini‘s mega-shiny neutral gloss. The brushed-up brows and touch of eyeliner on the outer corners of the eyes complement it perfectly.

This is the more colorful version of the usual brown monochromatic look. The tones of the eyeshadow, lips and nails all coordinate. The dark eyeliner helps enhance the eyes. You can skip the earrings, if you don’t want to look too matchy-matchy.

7. All-Over Red Makeup and Low PonytailSade TIme

See, not all the blush in the 1980’s was super streaky. Sade‘s red blush defines her cheeks but it blends in nicely with the rest of her face. Furthermore, the bold red lips and subtle red on the eyes tie everything together. You can also never go wrong with a low ponytail.

8. Soft Eyes and Glossy Red LipsCosmo Glam Look

There is a fair bit of color used in this look but the shades are elegant instead of gaudy. For the times when you want high-octane glamour on a night out, ignore the rule about focusing on one feature and pair your glossy red lips with a wash of sheer shadow up to your brows.

9. Piece-y Bangs and Flicked EyelinerPaulina Cosmo

Forget about all your bang mistakes and copy Paulina Porizkova‘s fringe. It is almost more of a 1960’s look when paired with the subtle cat eye liner but the glossy pink lips make it more ’80s.

10. Pink “No Makeup” LookCindy Crawford Vogue UK

This is one time were the “more-is-better” philosophy of the 1980’s didn’t apply. We usually reach for brown tones for “no makeup” looks but Cindy Crawford will make you want to try using pink shades.

11. Loose BraidEle MacPherson

Elle MacPherson‘s natural beauty look is great for everyday, but it is that loose side braid that you need to try. It would still look nice with an elastic but using your spaghetti strap to keep it in place is very clever.
