Eighties Essentias

written by Filippa Berg

Bring out the bold: Heart hoops, coral kisses and rainbow powder! Here are a few particularly pretty things, fit for a fresh take on throwback beauty.

The rainbow powder is an updated vintage classic, inspirerad by the original Shiseido Rainbow Powders, launched in 1917(!). Like it’s ancestor, it neutralises and lights up the skin. Below, I used it all over my face as highlighter, blush and eyeshadow. It’s barely there and translucent. But adds a subtle prismatic sheen, like a natural lit-from-within glow. Just the way I want it.

The liquid lipstick is semi-matte and has a whipped and wickedly moisturizing formula. It goes on opaque without looking completely flat, which I find flattering. And it stays that way until wine time. Plus the coral colour is on point.

Last but not least, the heart hoops! A style snatch from magical Margaux. Hers were from Tiffany & Co. Mine are a 5 bucks bargain from a local a dance shop.
