Makeup trends have cycled in and out, yet some looks or trends remain timeless forever for their charm and allure, leaving an indelible mark on our memories. The 50s, 60s, and 70s were iconic for multiple reasons. As the forefront of fashion evolved, makeup emerged as a potential means of self-expression.
Your beauty is a celebration of your inner personality, and if you happen to be a ‘nostalgia enthusiast’, a big beauty blast from the past is all you need to elevate your makeup game this season. In this guide, we will explore four enduring styles, from the classic-glam aesthetics of Hollywood from the 30s to the iconic winged eyeliners of the 60s and the edgy metallic eyeshadows that defined the 1980s.
Bushy & Beautiful Brows
Back in the 20s and 30s, it was all about having thin, pencilled-in eyebrows. But then, in the 50s, Audrey Hepburn changed the game with her full, well-defined brows, and everyone wanted them. Nowadays, beauty standards are more relaxed, and it’s all about celebrating your natural beauty and personal values. Looking ahead to 2024, we can expect a modern take on classic Hollywood elegance, with bushier, more natural-looking eyebrows being the new trend over the bold, thin brows of the 30s.
Paint the Town Red!
Nothing describes the fabulous fifties more than the ravishing bold red lips. From Marlyn Monroe to Madonna, all have adorned the beautiful cherry red lips or the brick red tones. What you pick ultimately depends on what suits your undertone best and your personal preference. The best way to rock this trend is to keep it simple. Just pair it with nicely shaped-eyebrows and a few coats of mascara.
The Metallic Magic
The 70s and 80s were officially the disco decade. The kohl-rimmed eyes paired with metallic eyeshadow and twiggy lashes was the era all about. Gone are the days of mundane nude brown eyeshadows. Go as extra as possible with a cut-crease and a pop of bright chromatic shade. Add more drama with our UROPARIS LV 4 and 5 Lashes. Thanks to Alexa Demie, it is finally back in the game.
Blush Boldly, Sculpt Gracefully
In this era of soft-girl makeup, sculpted cheeks have taken backstage. Contouring was prevalent even in the 30s. Use a peach blush to accentuate your features and facial structure for that sunkissed look. Isn’t beauty about a flush, healthy look? So, makeup lovers, it’s time to go slightly heavy-handed with your blush brush.
