What's not to love about the '80's? There's was no holding back when it came to makeup and hair - everything was go bold and go big. Thank goodness there was no teased, over-sprayed hair and frosty pink lipstick on the runways of Zac Posen, Carmen Marc Valvo, Juan Carlos Obando, Badgley Mischka, Bill Blass, Nicole Miller and Preen who all took makeup and hair inspirations from the '80's. The '80's glam look was modernized by using rich, metallic hues with pops of colour in the right places. I loved the look at Badgley Mischka with metallic brown tones mixed with plum and a bit of teal in the corners of the eyes. Shadow shaded up to the brow was also a big trend. Robert Palmer's Addicted To Love has become such a retro classic as well as the iconic women in the video. The red lip of last Fall made a return but was edgier with black smoky eyes and tightly slicked back hair. To turn these runway looks into reality, focus colour on one area of the face to keep it fresh and still looking like you.
