Make-up trends come and go, but there’s one thing we know for sure – they never disappear forever. Take a look at modern fashion shows and you’ll be taken aback by the variety of styles that are inspired by ancient Japan, medieval France, futuristic cyberpunk themes, and even wild disco fashion from the 80s. The same goes for make-up! Humanity started experimenting with make-up back when Ancient Egypt was in its prime, and we haven’t stopped ever since! Frosty lips, rainbow eye shadows, powders and blushes of all sorts, a variety of sponges and brushes that would put even the most talented painter to shame…Make-up is one of the most versatile art forms that just doesn’t get old. It constantly reinvents itself using old-school techniques to create new fashionable looks. Here are 10 make-up trends that went from cringe to absolutely cool during the last few decades.
Colored mascara is not something you see women wear every day. Most of us don’t even remember the times it was actually trendy – that’s because the 80s era of crazy makeup is long gone as are most of its peculiar trends. But not this one! People used to wear pink and blue colored mascara everywhere, including schools and works, and it seems that trend is about to hit the fashion world hard once again, stronger than ever. Even Chanel included some bright and flirty colored shades into their beauty lines! We still have our beloved blacks and browns, but it’s good to have that variety of colors to spice up our lashes.
It’s been a while since we’ve last seen someone rocking frosted lipstick. In fact, last time someone was bold enough to do this was in the 90s! It was a make-up trend that won over ladies of all ages and occupations from young students to businesswomen and office workers. The hype somewhat died off at the beginning of 2000, but the trend is back once again! The lipstick was transformed a bit and now looks cooler than ever with a new formula that is less glittery and more classy. We actually hope this trend stays longer this time!
Pastel Eye shadow
We still don’t understand why pastel eye shadows had to go – there was nothing radical about them in the first place. Nonetheless, they disappeared from the fashion world for more than just a few years before making a grand return. Pastel colors look fresh all year round and especially good in spring. You can wear them anyway you want and the variety of colors is striking. The palette also gives off a young vibrant vibe that makes you completely fall in love with these subtle, yet gorgeous colors.
It seems that face art is making a comeback and we still don’t know whether that’s a good or a bad thing. Some of you probably remember Gwen Stefani rocking bindis and all kinds of shiny jewels all around her face…Well, now you can get away with doing that, too! These days fashion is as crazy as it was 20 years ago, so it’s only natural for face embellishments to come back. All they needed was a little push from Kendall Jenner and her love for experimenting with different styles!
