Believe it or not, some of these looks once existed outside of costume parties. A night out involved every color of the rainbow, gloss was a given, and eyebrows were tweezed within an inch of their lives. Check out the evolution of makeup ahead.
In the early '80s, there was no such thing as too much blush. Debbie Harry's faux flushed look goes from apples to cheekbones and even up to her temples.
Madonna was all kisses for the lip shade of the year: muted purple.
Brooke Shields's naturally bushy brows inspired women to put down the tweezers.
Vanessa Williams's glossy, neutral lip color was the go-to hue.
"Understated" was not a word in Cyndi Lauper's 1986 vernacular. Here, she's seen wearing yellow eye shadow, bluish-green liner, and a bold red lip.
In the late '80s, brick red (like Molly Ringwald's lip shade) was the only red that mattered.
Even though she was royalty, even Princess Diana played with color in '88.
Bold colors gave way to neutral everything as the '90s approached. Clearly Kim Fields was on board.
Sculpted shadow and contour (yes, it existed even back then!) was Michelle Pfeiffer's go-to.
Sarah Jessica Parker rocked the 1991 version of a neutral lip.
For Drew Barrymore, the thinner the brows, the better ... at least in 1992.
Janet Jackson stuck to the '93 rule of thumb: Your lip liner should be three to four shades darker than your lip color.
Liv Tyler's natural makeup was the look of the year.
Stark white shadow swept across the entire eye (like Claire Danes's look) was everything in the mid-'90s.
A frosty lip look (see Winona Ryder) was the only accessory you needed.
This was the year to pack on a lavender shimmery shadow from lash line to brow bone, like Jennifer Lopez did here.
Golden skin, eyes, and lips (Hey, Tyra Banks!) were a '98 summer staple.
Pamela Anderson's black and gray smoky eyes finished out the '90s.
Gwen Stefani's teal shadow welcomed back bright color!
Christina Milian's iridescent lilac shadow from back in the day would basically be considered unicorn makeup today.
If you didn't paint on lip gloss constantly in the early 2000s (insert Britney Spears for inspo), what did you do?
Women spent most of 2003 running an inky black line over both lash lines and waterlines, like Mariah Carey.
Ultra-pale pink glossy lips, like Jessica Simpson's, were the 2004 color of choice.
Rihanna circa 2005 went for a swept-on coppery-orange shadow over both lids.
Pink gave way to peach this year and Lindsay Lohan was first in line to sport the trend on her lips, cheeks, and lids.
It didn't matter if it was a spray, cream, or lotion — if it was a self-tanner in 2007, Paris Hilton used it.
Kim Kardashian introduced the world to this glam combo.
Taylor Swift's famous black cat-eye started a liquid liner phenomenon.
Kerri Hilson chose flattering plum for her shadow and made way for the colorful smoky eye trend.
Kelly Rowland's pop of blue underliner was fun and unexpected in 2011.
