As we know, history repeats itself, and that’s evident in fashion and makeup trends, too. Suddenly, beauty looks from the ’90s are back with a vengeance: witness the berry lips and neon hair popping up everywhere from the catwalk to the red carpet. Let’s take a walk down memory lane with a step-by-step look at the updated styles that were, like, totally awesome.


how to
loud lips: Drew Barrymore was the reigning queen of dark lipstick back in the ’90s. Hello, Poison Ivy! Leave it to Kylie Jenner to update this lipstick staple. Kylie has nailed the throwback trend with kylie cosmetics Kourt K, a deep purple hue that goes on glossy with a matte finish., $29

nude-tudegrunge goddess: Eye shadow was dark and dramatic in the ‘90s, thanks to the emergence of grunge music. Model Abbey Lee Kershaw gave new life to the look at the premiere of Gods of Egypt. Bronze eye shadow covered both upper and lower lids, giving the model a smoldering, nighttime appeal. Check out the Balm Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette for gorgeous gold tone options., $48

nars-bronzwebronzed, not baked: The ’90s were all about bronzer. Taking a contemporary approach to the sometimes over-bronzed beauties of that era, you can add some color subtly to your cheeks with Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna. It will give you a healthy glow without the cakey, baked look of the past. Nordstrom at West County Center, $39

aqua-eyelinerglitter girl: Glitter was literally everywhere in the ’90s. I can still remember the look on my mom’s face when she saw the glitter I accidentally spilled all over her bathroom floor. While my ability to keep my makeup off the floor has improved, my love of glitter makeup has never subsided! Make Up For Ever waterproof Aqua eye liner is a beautiful, glittery product that, unlike the roller ball glitter of yore, goes on with a foam-tip applicator, allowing you to get the cleanest, most precise line possible.
Sephora, $23
