Eighties style is back in a big way and not just in your closet. Makeup trends from those years gone by are making their way back to our beauty shelves. And here’s the fun part. We are now officially grown enough to wear the looks. No more sneaking out of the house with an eye liner pencil and cherry flavored gloss in your book bag. What’s hot this fall is color eye liner. Think electric blue, bright green and yes, purple.
While there’s nothing subtle about blue eyeliner, let’s not get too caught up in the moment and go Boy George on this one, ladies. When working this look you want to think sophistication, not Karma Kameleon. The model above is wearing HIP Cream Eye Crayon in intricate Blue for Harper’s Bazaar. A bit striking for the office (well, my office), but as always, you can modify your look for the venue and the occasion. Personally, I’m experimenting with Christian Dior’s Precision Eye Liner in Plum. Question. Do you think asymmetrical hair cuts and Jherri Curls will come back? Nah!
