90’s Makeup for 2017: The Top Two Beauty Trends of the 1990’s Are BACK


The 80’s,90’s, and 00’s are all having a beauty moment right now which means we have a lot of beauty looks to play with, and with very little risk of looking like you are stuck in a time warp – or worse – a beauty rut.  70’s blue eyeliner, 80’s intense colors and eye liners, and both the 90’s nude palette beauty and the opposite, strong contour looks, are relevant again.  Summer is the perfect time to try the no-makeup makeup while fall is the right time for the more defined looks of the 90’s.

The nude-toned palette look was seen on models like Amber Valetta and Kate Moss, with thin eyebrows, peach-hued blush, no eyeliner, and lips one shade darker than the model’s own lip color.  The 2017 take on this trend skips the thin brows and instead full, strong eyebrows keep things modern.  Mac Spice Lip liner was King, or Queen as it were, and for a hot moment it was trendy to let the lip liner be visible, without matching the lip color or blending it in, but that too is thankfully relegated to the past. So blend, blend, blend.  (Or look ridiculous).

Legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin was the master of the stronger contoured beauty looks that filled editorial pages and covers.  The same color palette ruled but applied in a way to really define the face, almost altering it.  Think all today’s contouring trends are new?  Think again. Kevyn Aucoin started it almost thirty years ago, and everyone today can thank him for the sculpted face look, with highlighted temples, cheekbones and eyebrow bones, and refined noses.  The 2017 take is less dramatically contoured, toned-down highlighted areas, and a more glowing complexion rather than matte. 

Everything old is new again and most of it is relevant is some way or other, so be inspired.   Pick some part of the trend and update it to today with simple tweaks from this years most fashion-forward looks.  And yes, Mac Spice Lip liner is still a top seller, and no beauty kit is complete without it.  That’s as classic as it gets.
