LOVED dressing up as Cyndi Lauper. My favorite part was the BIG red hair. But to pull off this icon, I also wore a black off the shoulder top, an 80s staple. Cyndi is known for wearing tons of accessories. Her style is a little punk too. So, I wore lots of chains and bracelets.
To achieve the 80s hairstyle, I parted my hair above the arch of my left eyebrow. Then, I used an entire can of red hair spray (don’t worry, its not permanent). Note: If you do choose to spray paint your hair, wear a T-shirt you don’t mind ruining. Then I teased it at the crown, pulled all the hair to my right side and back combed my entire head of hair.
For the eye makeup, I applied Bare Escentuals in Envy to my entire lid, up to the brow bone. I used black in the crease line and blended well. Then I lined my inner lid and just below my waterline with Urban Decay Onyx eyeliner. I finished off the look with liquid eyeliner and 3 coats of mascara.
My other favorite part of being Cyndi was her facial expressions. So fun to embody a fun-loving silly girl. It’s not too far off from my actual essence although she definitely has more edge.
