The ’90s are back and better than ever, and not just when it comes to clothing. This iconic era has also resurfaced in the world of makeup, bringing with it nostalgic trends that many of us may remember embracing when they first came on the scene. Makeup artists and beauty enthusiasts alike have been relishing in the revival of both grunge and pop-inspired looks, adding their own modern twists in the process. From lipstick to eyeshadow, here are some ideas on how to add a ’90s touch to your beauty routine.
Lipsticks in shades of beige and dark chocolate are everywhere this season, and this is one makeup trend we hope sticks around. Brown lips are an easy way to add a touch of elegance to your look, yet are neutral enough to work with almost any skin tone.
This one goes for more than makeup—the cartoonish, yet dainty flowers of the ’90s are having a moment in the form of all kinds of accessories such as chokers and hair clips. We especially love the idea of rocking them as a manicure to add a bit of fun to any outfit.
While we’re not convinced smoky eyes ever really went out of style, we’ve been seeing a definite increase in the grungy, smudgy, stayed-up-all-night version of the look that was especially popular on the decade’s runways and red carpets. Think of celebrities like Pamela Anderson and Angelina Jolie.
