Netflix's GLOW = your new beauty obsession

If you haven’t already heard, new Netflix series GLOW is set to be this summer’s answer to cult all-girl comedy-drama Orange is the New Black (which makes sense as the two shows share a production team). Focusing on the world of wrestling in the 80s (GLOW = Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling), expect a badass female cast, neon spandex, industrial-strength hairspray and some very fierce glitter-based make-up looks. Here are the GLOW-inspired retro beauty hits you'll be channeling all summer long...

Liner up

While some things should remain firmly in the 80s (leg warmers, dodgy perms, etc), we're well into the bold beauty on display in GLOW. Ramp up the retro by pairing electric blue winged liner with a fuchsia blouse and Dynasty-style earrings. So right for any city festival plans.

Give that nostalgic inspiration a summer sheen by keeping your eyes as the main talking point and toning down the rest (bar a slick of raspberry-toned lipgloss). Start your cat-eye from the inner corners of your lids and make it chunky for a real statement.

Confetti stare

If GLOW's taught us one thing from the outset, it's that your pro-wrestling costume is nothing unless it's smothered in at least a kg of glitter. Take notes from the ring with a slightly more subtle shimmer eyeshadow. For your BNO, match with a mini dress or give it the casj factor with a denim jacket and skater sneaks.

Dab moisturiser onto the eyelids and, while slightly tacky, use an eyeshadow brush to gently press the metallic pigment onto lids, fanning it out gently until it reaches your brow bone. Add some clear lipgloss and you're ready for the dancefloor.
