Ahhh the 90's, a time where it was cool to rock double denim, wear overalls & platform sneakers. Flavoured lip balms were on everyone's lips and boy band posters adorned our walls. Well the 90's is making a comeback! Everywhere from fashion, to tv shows and it is now hitting the makeup industry. We breakdown the biggest 90 trends to jump on board
Colour Changing Makeup
Who doesn't remember going into the chemist with your mum and playing with the magical green or black lipsticks that changed colour to a gaudy pink when applied and thinking it was the coolest thing ever! The colour changing lipstick is back, but gone is the awful bright pink. It has been replaced by a much softer nicer pink to suit everyone's skin tone. The Poni Cosmetics Lip Magic changes colour based on your skins PH level to give you the perfect pink.
The toys every kid wanted!! Polly Pocket, Mighty Max, Tamagotchi's, they were everywhere! What better way to relive the 90's then with a eyeshadow palette that looks like it belongs with the Pocket Toy family. The new Lime Crime Pocket Candy Palette's are the perfect 90's throwback! 3 different palettes, with gorgeous bright colours.
Blue eyeshadow didn't die in the 80's, it came right on into the 90's too. Who doesn't remember thinking they were the coolest showing up to the blue light disco wearing your best blue eyeshadow, butterfly clips and denim ensemble. In all fairness it wasn't always a good look back then, when it was frequently paired with bright lipstick and no transition shades on the eyelid. Make it work now by pairing it with a nude lip.
Can you even call yourself a 90's kid if you didn't literally coat every surface of yourself with glitter!! Regardless of whether you are going to a festival or it's just an ordinary day, we can all use a little glitter to brighten our life! Wear it on the eyes, on the lips, on the cheeks, everywhere!!
If you weren't into the bright neon colours and glitter, there was always the option of the grunge look, with dark eyes and brown/burgundy lips. Dark matte lipsticks are still on trend and pair it with dark lined eyes and a choker and you will be looking like you just stepped out of the 90's!
