Trends from the 90’s have made successful reappearances on the runway over the past few seasons, but the return of the aesthetics of the decade doesn’t merely stop at clothing. More recently, iconic beauty trends worn on 90’s icons like Kate Moss, Drew Barrymore, and Winona Ryder have made significant comebacks in the beauty industry. The most prominent of these trends include berry lipstick, metallic and blue eye shadow, glossy lips, lip liner, and lower lid eyeliner.
Berry lipstick was the ultimate shade choice of the 90’s; to channel this look yourself, try Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Gone Greige, available online at Ulta, or Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Jam, available online at Sephora. Pair lip colors with a shiny top coat via Glossier’s newest Lip Gloss, available now at Glossier.com. Another beauty staple of the decade was heavily lined lips, usually a shade or two darker than the wearer’s lipstick color. Duplicate the look or truly make it your own with Bite Beauty’s Lip Pencil in 084 or 042 (available online at Sephora). Inky to bright cobalt blue and daring metallic shadows have both made a triumphant return with the launch of Pat McGrath’s Dark Star 006 in Ultraviolet Blue, available online at Sephora. For lower lid liner, be sure to check out Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer, available online at Marc Jacobs Beauty.
