80's Challenge...New member of Shalamar

LMAO! This was fun. Well I know what your saying, "lakialocs, WTF!" Let me explain. There is a fun blogging challenge to come up with your best 80's look. I could not resist and had fun during the process. I was in elementary school in the 80's, but I am sure that if I was allowed to wear makeup that I would have favored my look towards Jody Watley. To me she was a true diva, a super model slash singer. Her cheek bones were to die for! Infamous hooped earrings. She had us doing the whop and searching for a new love baby! So my 80's look is a tribute to her.

Here is what I used:
Eyes: L'Oreal eye primer
MAC- Bare Study
LA Colors - Lolipop (Shimmering Loose Powder)
MK - Cotton Candy
L'Oreal Hip - Playful
MAC- Cloud burst
Black liquid liner and pencil
Lips: Revlon Color Stay - Fire
Cheeks: L'Oreal Blendable Blushing Creme - Elated

Enjoy! Muah!!!!! Check out my other friends in the beauty blogosphere sharing the 80's love with their FOTDs!!
Thanks for participating ladies!!!!!!!
Making you feel good in the 80's:

You are Jody Watley to a T!!!

She was so bomb in 80s, I loved all her songs. Thanks for reminding us that Jody was a diva to be reckoned with and creating such an awesome recreation!!

SeZ said...

Your acting up again. :-)
I love Jody and my mother and her look like twins. Everytime someone see her they say you look like that singer, Jody.
That looks like it was alot of fun to do.

Love it! I would have had to do Jem and the Holograms like Lakahna. Reminds me of the purple Jem lunch box I had in 1st grade.
