The Australian Women's Weekly - - 85 years -

When the 1980s ar­rived it was a shouty mish­mash of perms and ri­otous colours, and make-up turned to­wards the huge eye­lashes and strik­ing eye shad­ows such as the “an­gel hair with seraphin eyes” (far right). Bound­ary-push­ing aes­thet­ics like the rag doll look (right), “the lat­est (be­lieve it or not!) from Lon­don”, were de­signed to shock rather than ac­tu­ally wear. The “New Faces” fea­ture (above) from 1980 of­fered the “Bordeaux face – in­tense and mys­te­ri­ous. All the shades from pink through to prune”.
