Cool ideas to enjoy fun colours by revamping key looks from past eras,
giving them a modern, stylish touch.


The millennium was an era of freedom and being outside the box. Focus on what you wear, and keep your make-up natural. Your eyeshadow and lip colour should be in nude hues, but you can add a surprise element by using turquoise eyeliner at the inner corners for a cool and rebellious look.  

Pro’s Tips: If you have healthy skin, use only make-up base and tinted moisturiser. If you want to conceal imperfections, use concealer only where needed.

THE 1990s

Make-up in the 1990s was all about minimalism and natural looks, but you can still style it up with bolder brows and bright lips in hot pink to add a pop of colour.

Pro’s Tips: Keep the skin light and natural. Try wearing eye make-up in the same colour as your lips, such as pink shimmer eyeshadow with bright pink lip colors for a stylish look.

Key Tools:

THE 1980s

It’s the era of punk rock. Bring back the look and go all the way with funky hair colour, fierce eyeliner and dark lipliner. Your outfit should be simple, such as tee and jeans.  

Pro’s Tips: Since the look focuses on eye make-up, reverse your make-up routine. Start with eye make-up and wipe out any smudge before applying skin make-up.

THE 1970s

In the 1970s, brightly coloured eyes and fake lashes were major trends. To spice it up, use neon eyeshadow on your eyelids and use pencil liner to define the eyes rather than using fake lashes. This gives you a fun and quirky look.

Pro’s Tips: Since the eyes are the focus, keep the cheeks light and apply only lip gloss or lip balm.

Key Tools:

  • M.A.C Eyeshadow สี New Crop 
  • Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner (980 Baht)
  • Guerlain Two-Tone Blush สี 02 Neutral Pink (1,790 Baht)

THE 1960s

It’s all about graphic liners and twiggy haircut. To make this look more relevant, keep your hair short and wear oversized sunglasses to skip eye make-up. The lips should be in orange colour, which was a popular trend back in the 1960s.

Pro’s Tips: With your hair being short, add some lowlights to add volume and depth. Tousle your hair and style it with wax for a not-too-retro look.
