Charlotte TilburyBeautiful Skin Foundation, £39
The Perfect Base
Forget about contouring and don’t even consider a heavy base, it’s all about pared back, natural looking skin with the 90s makeup look. Charlotte Tilbury’s Beautiful Skin Foundation offers a buildable medium coverage to conceal any uneven tones and blemishes. The finish is neither matte nor radiant, it’s natural AKA perfect for tapping into the 90s. If you’re concerned about an oily T-zone, follow up with the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder.
19/99Precision Colour Pencil, £19
The Signature 90s Eye
Creating the smudged, grungy smoky eye look couldn’t be easier with this pencil from 19/99. From rich burgundy and electric blue to a chic navy hue, this smooth pencil comes in a range of shades to suit all skin tones and eye colours. For those who love a multitasker, this pencil works for your eyes, cheeks and lips.
SweedBrow Pencil, £23
The Defined Brows
While full, bushy eyebrows have been trending for years, it might be time to take your cue from 90s supermodels like Kate Moss and tap into a thinner, more defined brow look. Sweed’s Brow Pencil gives you the control to fill in sparse patches and create a more sculpted look.
Rare BeautyKind Words Lipstick, £21
The 90s Matte Lip
A 90s makeup look is not complete without a matte lipstick. We’re thinking Gwyneth Paltrow on the red carpet circa ‘95 with a matte brown lip. To recreate the look, we recommend investing in Rare Beauty Kind Words Lipstick in Talented (or Gifted if you want a stronger look). The hydrating yet matte formulas are comfortable to wear and won’t dry out your lips.
NimyaSpill the Juice! Lip Gloss, £16
The Glossy Lip Look
If you’re not into a matte lip look, why not recreate the icy pink tones that were equally as popular in the 90s? Of course, NikkieTutorials has formulated the perfect lip gloss to achieve the look in seconds. Choose from Don’t Tell Anyone and She Said What and apply at least two layers. You’ll have the perfect 90s glossy lip look without any of the stickiness formulas had back then.
VIEVEEye Wand, £23
The Pastel Eye Look
Pastel pinks might have been favoured by the likes of Drew Barrymore, but for a modern twist we’ve been trying out creamy neutral hues courtesy of Vieve – our go-to is Camel.
