here’s no denying that several 90s trends hit a little differently this 2023 as they’ve resurfaced to trigger dear nostalgia. From the delicate slip dresses to the sensational bell bottoms, we clearly can’t get enough of the good ol’ 90s. Equally interesting is the 90s-inspired glam look that all our favorite celebs and influencers are riding in full swing. Certainly, if there’s one trend to hop on this season, it’s this one. 

When you think of 90s makeup, you may not think it’s overly relevant today, but it is. Of course, you don’t have to go full 90s as with a few tweaks, you’re sure to get a super impressive makeup look inspired by the era but relevant for today. A rule of thumb when trying to pick inspiration from a past decade is to focus on accentuating a feature while keeping others muted. For example, you can choose to let your lips ride the 90s train while the rest of your face doesn’t. Simply put, it’s about keeping a balance as you don’t want to risk appearing like you just stepped out from 1991. 

Check out tips to nail a 90s-inspired glam look in 2023…

If there’s one thing the 90s makeup trend is famous for, it is bold eyeshadows. For the most part of that decade, women wore their eyeshadows to make a statement, and they succeeded. From bright blues to heavy glitter, the “eyes” had it. This 2023, go bold with your eyes for an instant 90s glam but ensure to keep other elements minimal.

You know how the right lipstick can elevate an entire face beat. The 90s woman knew this too. Whether it was dark lipstick, overlined lips, or even glistering gloss, the lips spoke a great deal about that glam. Channel your inner fierce this 2023 with darker shades of lipsticks and you’ll be totally right.

Supermodel Naomi Campbell was famous for this in the 90s, and it’s no surprise why. Spider lashes delicately bring a flirty vibe to your overall look in a coy yet decisive way. Other than that, it also flatters most eyes by making them pop. Whichever length you choose is up to you, but be sure to opt for a pair you’re comfortable in.

It’s okay to draw your eyeliner on both your lower and upper lids. This adds depth and a sexy vibe to your look. When it comes to rocking the tight-line eyeliner, be sure to use a darker shade of liner as this will bring the desired effect. You don’t want to look like an alien trying to invade Earth.

The eyebrow way of life was super thin between 1989 to the early 2000s. The thinner the brows, the better. Conversely, 2023 has given room for a more diverse range of eyebrows. That is to say, trying a strictly 90s brow game this 2023 isn’t likely to cut it. But there’s a way around that. Rather than thin out your brows, you should fill in subtle strokes for a realistic result.
