How to make your makeup look like your favorite 80s character
When I was growing up, my parents would buy me makeup and makeup every time they came over for dinner.
My mom had a small collection of makeup products from the 80s and 90s, which I would then buy with my dad and mom.
I loved the look of the old-school looks.
My dad loved the new-school, vintage-inspired looks of the 80’s, and I loved them too.
But I’m always surprised when I go back to the 80-90s and find my dad still has all the makeup in his closet.
This post explains how to make those old-timey look-alikes look just like the characters they came from.
The makeup I’m about to show you can also look like some of my favorite 80-year-old makeup looks, too.
A look like the ’80s characters.
My dad always had the ’90s-inspired makeup.
Here’s a look like his.
As you can see, the lipstick in the bottom is really pretty and has a hint of purple.
I’ve always loved the ’70s and ’80ies.
The lipsticks I got from my dad.
I was just like, I’ve gotta get more old-style lipsticks.
I love this.
But then, I remember a few things.
One, my dad’s makeup is a bit pricey.
Two, he didn’t really make a lot of money.
Three, he never really wore anything too bold.
So when I saw a few makeup items that looked like 80s characters, I wanted to emulate that look.
And it’s not as hard as it sounds.
Here’s how: Makeup artist Kristy Tabor created a palette of lipsticks and lipsticks-like products that look like classic 80s makeup.
(Kirsty Taber/Courtesy Kristy-Tabor) I bought a few lipsticks from her online store.
These are the ones I like the most.
My makeup artist Kristi Tabor also created a line of lip products for me to try out.
I also bought a couple of lip-safe lipsticks, but those are just too expensive.
Here are the products that I purchased from her: My first lipstick that I bought was a matte black lip that’s supposed to be a little bit dark.
This is a matte lipstick from the 90s.
It’s really dark, but I love how it’s a little more sheer than the rest of the shades.
It’s also very wearable, so I’m looking forward to wearing it in the future.
These lipsticks are great.
Next up, I tried out a couple lipsticks that are more shimmery and more shimmer-like.
These colors are more matte than matte and have a shimmery sheen to them.
And the best part?
These shades look great on!
I’m a big fan of shimmery lipsticks in general, so this is a perfect match for me.
So that’s my first lipstick, and now I’ve got a new palette full of shades that I really like.
But this isn’t my first foray into makeup, either.
My parents had a great line of vintage makeup that I was always fascinated with, so we decided to buy a few of the products and get a good feel for how they worked.
Kristi Taber is a makeup artist and a makeup stylist based in New York City.
She’s also a mom to three beautiful boys.
I reached out to Kristi through her Instagram account for some makeup advice.
She answered a few questions and shared a few tips.

You may have noticed a few similarities between the products we bought and the vintage-era makeup Kristi created.
We’re hoping that these vintage-looking products look even better in the coming months.
