How beauty trends have evolved over the last fifty years

beauty trends have evolved over the last fifty years Beauty trends come and go every year. Fifty years ago, it was all about bright eyeshadow and colored mascara. These days we opt for the ‘my skin but better look with dewy cheekbones. While some trends rely on makeup, others delve into plastic surgery and permanent changes. Celebrities and social media play into these beauty trends and promote them to millions of people around the world.

Plastic surgery is very popular at the moment – particularly rhinoplasty. Nose surgery can help you to feel more confident and attractive on the inside and out. However, you should also consider how your new nose will age over time. A high-quality rhinoplasty will age with the rest of your face and seamlessly blend with your other features.

Let’s take a closer look at how beauty trends have changed in the last fifty years.

The 1980s

Makeup went to the next level in the 1980s. Vibrant colours were everywhere – from your mascara to your lipstick. The bushy brow gained more popularity, and a bright pink blush was an absolute must. A heavy application was used for all products and subtly was left in the 70s.

The 1990s

In the 90s, darker lipstick came onto the scene in brown and burgundy shades. A dark lip liner was often paired with a lighter lipstick to create a stark contrast. Thin eyebrows were all the rage, along with flawless and fresh skin. The 90s were an iconic period for the beauty and fashion industry. Some of these trends are still popular today.

The 2000s are categorized by blue eyeshadow and pink lip gloss. Frosted lip gloss was popular for a little while, and the eyebrows only seemed to get thinner. Some girls had eyebrows with a defined arch that was just one hair thick. Celebrities started rocking extreme highlights, with a dark brown base and bright white stripes through their hair.

The 2010s

Makeup took a different turn in the 2010s, and the full face came back into fashion. It was all about full coverage foundation with contoured cheeks and false lashes. The Kardashians pioneered the 2010s makeup scene and taught the world how to make their cheekbones pop. Throughout the decade, the colors became deeper and smokier with matte lips and winged liner.

The 2020s

After the full coverage trend, the makeup industry was desperate for a more natural look. Today, most people prefer a lighter foundation with dewy cheeks and light eyeshadow.
