90s inspired Makeup Look




I am an 80s baby and a 90s child. The 90s was the best era ever to me. It felt real, natural and free. Although in clothing it was very colourful, flamboyant and over the top, there was this sense of freshness. Especially when it comes to the makeup. Makeup was so simplified compared to now. Skin was Matte, eyes slight simple eyes and lips were that bold yet subtle brown/nude shade. All skin complexions related to this type of makeup look and it worked for everyone. There was no emphasis on highlight and contouring nor blush and over done eyebrows... just simple yet striking and sleek.
