Today, I’m going to take you on a journey through the history of popular makeup trends. We’ll look at what was hot in each decade, starting with the 1950s and ending with today. Some of these looks will make you question your fashion choices; others will inspire you to try something new. So sit back, relax, and let’s begin!

The ’50s

The ’50s were a time of glamour and sophistication, but also conformity. The decade was marked by the rise of television and rock ‘n’ roll music, which gave way to a new era of fashion trends.

The popularity of makeup in this period was largely influenced by the emergence of television shows like I Love Lucy and Dick Van Dyke Show where female characters wore bright red lips against pale skin; this trend continued into the ’60s as well as through today’s modern day beauty looks that include bold lips paired with natural eye makeup or no eyeshadow at all!

The ’60s

  • The hippie look was popular.
  • The mod look was popular.
  • The punk look was popular.
  • The glam rock look was popular

The ’70s

In the 1970s, makeup was used to express one’s individuality and political views. For example, if you were wearing a red lipstick during this time period, it could mean that you were expressing your support for socialism or communism. If someone wore blue eye shadow over their right eye but not the left eye, it would be assumed they were gay–and many people did just that!

The ’70s were also known for being a time of rebellion against authority figures such as parents or teachers. In fact, many teens began wearing black eyeliner around their eyes without blinking at all so that they wouldn’t have to use their blinkers…you know…if there was something dangerous going on nearby like an accident or something like that (like someone tripping).

The ’80s

In the ’80s, makeup was all about bright colors. Contour was popular and lipsticks were bold, so women wore bright reds or pinks on their lips. Eyeshadows were used to create a smokey eye look, while eyeliners were thick and black–often lined right up to the brows! Hair accessories were also very important in this decade: big hair bows and scrunchies became popular accessories for both men and women alike.

Eyebrows were often arched high above the eyes in an exaggerated shape that made them look bigger than they actually were (which was considered attractive at this time).

The ’90s

The 1990s were the decade of grunge, a subgenre of alternative rock that rejected mainstream music and culture.

Grunge was a reaction to the perceived excesses of 1980s glam metal and pop, which were then at their zenith in popularity. Grunge artists were more likely to wear flannel shirts than leather jackets or spandex pants; they sang about depression and suicide rather than partying on Sunset Strip; they played their guitars with distortion pedals instead of playing them cleanly through Fender amps with lots of reverb. The music sounded rawer because it was recorded with less studio polish than its predecessors had been; even though many bands used digital recording equipment in their early years, they didn’t bother editing out mistakes or fixing bad takes–so you could hear imperfections like muddy bass lines or off-key vocals if you listened closely enough (or just listened carefully).

Lately it seems like everyone’s going for an old-school look, with cat eyes, red lips and bold brows.

This can be traced back to the ’90s when the grunge movement took over. That was followed by a renaissance of punk fashion in the early 2000s (think studded leather jackets). And now we’re seeing a return to glamourous Hollywood style from decades past: Think Marilyn Monroe or Bette Davis’ eyebrows!

The next time you’re getting ready for a night out at your favorite club or event–or even just running errands around town–think about what era inspired your look today? You might just find that what was once considered “old school” is actually “new hotness!”

Conclusion

We can’t help but wonder what the next decade will bring in terms of makeup trends. Will they continue to be influenced by past eras, or will something new emerge? Only time will tell!
