The smokey eye is being ditched, for 80s eyeshadow, on the red carpet

Move over, 90s! There’s a new decade making a comeback and it’s about to transform the way we do makeup for 2019.

The 80s were notorious for disco, shoulder pads, neon and loud eyeshadow. The latter of which blinded bystanders last night in Beverly Hills, as the 2019 Golden Globes kicked off.

As the first major ceremony of the award season, the Globes is always a good indicator of trends to come and this time smokey eyes and nude lips were ditched for vivid eyeshadows, coloured lashes and fluro pouts.

Nick Barose, who was behind Lupita Nyong’o’s bold electric blue lashes, said his inspiration came from French artist Yves Klein, and ‘a little bit of 80s fun’. He used Lancome’s Drama Liqui Pencil in Cote de Azur to line her eyes, before applying Lashify’s Gossamer False Lashes in ‘Royal Blue’ to create the colour-popping look.

Lili Reinhart matched her stunning red gown with a metallic red eye courtesy of makeup artist Adam Breuchaud. He used a mixture of Pat McGrath palettes, including Mothership V: Bronze Seduction Palette for a three-dimensional finish.

And last but definitely not least, Yvette Nicole Brown left us shook with this two-toned look of orange eyeshadow and fushia eyeliner. Bow down, the 80s are back.

See if you can spot the other 80s beauty trends on the Golden Globes red carpet…
