We’ve all heard the saying what’s past is prologue. And we’ve found it to be entirely true in the beautyverse. Trends we thought would maybe never see the light of day again (cue, intensely glossy lips or electric blue eyeshadow) are slowly but surely creeping their way back into 2018 magazine editorials and runways. This is particularly apparent in some of the 80s makeup trends we’ve come to know (and either love, or hate), so we decided to create the perfect playlist to help you get ready to celebrate the decade.
