I Heart the 80′s FOTD

80%2527s

Tis 80′s Monday girlies!

A few of us on the blogsphere got together and decided to do some 80′s looks! The looks are popping up everywhere and they look fab!

For mine I went with a really vibrant orange and fuschia combo. My inspiration came from Cyndi Lauper’s brilliant orange hair back then!

    Awww. I really wanted some do his or her take on Jem and the Holograms style 80′s makeup. Come on, Izzy! It’ll be fun (and truly outrageous).

    dude this was like brain surgery just to figure out ;)

    I do bold looks everyday so doing an 80′s look just wasn’t challenging enough!

    I was going to go with major black eyeliner smeared down my eyes a la raccoon 80′s but I decided that I’d best keep it simple with orange and pink ;)
