What comes to mind when you hear the term "90s makeup"? To us, it brings up images of a rainbow of smudgy, smokey colors and hundreds of famous supermodels. The style of the 1990s was all about adding a dash of catwalk-ready glitz to your natural features, and the looks were so beautiful that it's no wonder they're having a major comeback right now. That said, let’s know more about the latest 2024 makeup trends and learn how to bring the 90s glam back.

 

A Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving the Iconic Makeup Look

 

Blue eyeshadow

Although blue eyeshadow continues to be in style, our favorite way to use it is in the '90s style. Imagine dramatic, deep, and black with a hint of gentle metallic sheen. While summertime hues like turquoise and aqua are great for eyes, an autumnal look reminiscent of the '90s with navy blue lends a splash of color to your evening attire or party look.

 

 

Brown lipstick

Although nude lipstick has always been in style, brown lipstick, worn at least two shades deeper than the color of your skin for a statement-making finish, ruled the 1990s. Restock your makeup bag with it for a striking lip that makes your eyes and cheeks pop and takes center stage in shades of dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, and caramel. 

 

 

White eyeliner

White eyeliner was one of the top tricks of the 1990s, combining trends and beauty techniques with a single pencil stroke to quickly awaken eyes. The white liner was only added on the lower waterline to hide red rims from too many sleepless nights. It makes sense that supermodels who enjoyed parties were captivated by this look.

 

 

Brown smokey eyes

With its matte, contoured finish and cappuccino tones, the '90s smoky eye created the illusion of larger, brighter eyes. Makeup for a night out sorted. To try this look, replace your go-to eyeshadow palettes in silver, charcoal, and sparkling copper with a nude eyeshadow palette.

 

 

Bitten red lips

 

90s makeup trend cherry lips

 

A bitten red lip is oldie of the 1990s, much as cherry-red lips are of the 1980s. Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Gwen Stefani were among the celebrities who wore this rich color, whether it was glossy or matte. Keep your base glowing with a pink blush wash to rock the 90s glam.

 

 

Skinny brows

You can trick your way into the trend before doing something you'll still regret thirty years later, rather than permanently losing your brow form or brow hairs for life by plucking your way to slim brows. It is impossible to hide really big brows that will appear beautiful in real life. However, you may use a glue stick to mask them off in photos, cover them with concealer and powder to set it, and then put makeup on top. 

 

 

Spider lashes

Perhaps this trend of spider lashes is here to stay. However, the '90s girls, who were addicted to wearing a lot of mascara, enjoyed the ultra-long lash look. Fortunately, it's easy to create them without mascara. To achieve the spider appearance, try applying individual lashes in clusters or a set of fake lashes that are clumped together.

 

 

Tightline eyeliner

The 1990s were crazy about tiny lines, especially slim tightlined liner, for anything from brows to eyeliner. To achieve the same effect, use kohl eyeliner to rim your upper and lower lash lines. To prevent raccoon eyes, use a jet-black shade similar to Gwyneth's. Set the liner with black eyeshadow. The ideal combination for this trend is blush and neutral lips.

 

 

Overlined lips

 

90s makeup trend overlined lips

 

We're all well aware by now that using lip liner just beyond our natural lip line gives the appearance of having larger lips. However, in the 1990s, celebrities like Victoria Beckham invented the tactic. To begin, use a dark nude or brown pencil to overline your lips. For the ultimate 90s pout, layer on a nude gloss rather than a matching lipstick on top.

 

 

Extra body glitter

 

90s makeup trend glitter

 

We had plenty of body glitter options for our 90s models, including roll-on sticks, gels, and loose shimmer that we applied with huge powder puffs. This pressed compact glitter will give you a hint of glitter on your shoulders and décolletage if you prefer a more subdued look. To create your own custom color scheme, you may also combine a small amount of loose glitter with body oil or lotion.

 

 

Lip gloss

 

90s makeup trend lipgloss

 

The glossy, luscious lips we craved for in the 1990s were back in 2023. Blame it on Hailey Bieber or our dehydrated lips from years of wearing matte lip products. Lip gloss is quite widely available. It highlights your lips, is simple to apply, and doesn't require much precision.
