Mollie King Shows Us How to Make '80s Makeup Feel Modern

Eighties and nineties fashions are enjoying a serious revival right now, so we guess it's not that odd if beauty looks from those two eras start to creep back into popularity. And while not many people can pull off thick blue eyeliner and a neon magenta lip (worn with cherry red nail polish!), British babe Mollie King makes it look easy. So easy, in fact, we're kind of thinking of trying it. You too? Don't forget to do these three things:
1) Darken up those eyebrows. With such vibrant makeup, you can't wimp out now. Plus, the eighties were all about ridiculously bold brows. The bigger and blacker, the better.
2) Contour those cheeks. The goal is to appear as if you're sucking on a lemon 24/7. You can totally fake chiseled cheeks that appear ultra plump at the apples with a little (OK, OK a lot of) contour powder.
3) Keep the liner low. Your upper eyelids should be completely bare; concentrate all of the color on your lower lids. And just when you think you've applied enough eyeliner, go ahead and apply a little bit more. In fact, the more, the merrier.
