The 90s are back with major fashion labels taking inspiration from 90s inspired fashion trends. It isn’t just the fashion world that’s borrowing from the decade-long period of cool, hair and makeup has also been looking back to beauty trends from one of the most fashion forward decades of the century! Read on for our top 5 90s inspired lipstick looks for millennial makeup babes.
A reddish-brown lipstick with a hint of plum that was worn by scenesters and grunge queens alike. Layer up for an opaque finish, or give your lipstick a smudge for a stained 90s rock and roll look à la Courtney Love. Team up your vampish lips with a 90s platinum blonde bob, a velvet skater dress and one of those chokers pretty much everyone owned back in the day.
Try the NARS Audacious Lipstick - Vixien, a modern lipstick so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture the sensation is audacious. Unadulterated luxury glides on like satin across skin with single-stroke coverage.
Believe it or not, nude lipstick isn’t a noughties invention, in fact famous celebrities like Kate Moss have been sporting a nude lip long before any of us were experimenting with cosmetics. The difference between then and now? Nudes were glossier and far more opaque then than they are today. Opt instead for a sheer, semi-gloss nude lipstick to bring your 90s nude look into the two-thousands.
Try the MAC Lipglass - Oh Baby, unique lip gloss that can create a high-gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen. Designed to be worn on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick, it's the perfect product for creating shine that lasts. It's pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic colour. It contains jojoba oil to help soften and condition the lips.
Cindy Crawford pioneered the iconic bold red lipstick look that had girls all over the world reaching out for their brightest, reddest lipsticks. Update your bold red lip look with a brighter shade in matte, contrasting and making your lips pop with minimal makeup to the eye area.
Try the YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats - 203 Rouge Rock. perfect matte lipstick that is infused with a velvet complex for a luxuriously smooth application and moisturizing jojoba oil for long lasting comfort. Intense color pigments for a vibrant touch of color for up to 6 hours of long wear. Forbidden, passionate, seductive, scandalous.
Cool berry lips
This particular shade of lipstick is versatile enough to work on pretty much all skin tones, which is why we’ve made cool berry lips our personal flashback to the 90s favourite look! Keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum and steer clear of any sort of contouring at all costs as not to overdo this look. Opt instead for a slick of black liquid eyeliner and a volume enhancing mascara to complete your look.
Try the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Lip Colour - 066 Berry Beret, a light-weight texture reveals the lips’ natural radiance, leaving them supple and comfortable.
Frosted lips were the look of the 90s, though today we consider it as a lipstick colour that, quite frankly, only serves to wash out most complexions. For a warmer and more feminine alternative, why not try a baby pink frosted lipstick instead. Team your look up with girly floral prints in pink and pastel shades for a look so cute, you’ll have boys eating out of the palm of your hand.
Try the Dior Addict Gloss - 553 Princess, The magical touch of fashion and shine. Dior Addict Gloss is a declaration of love for fashion, an electrifying whirlwind of sheer glossy colours that light up the lips with shimmering, pure or pearly mirror shine.
