The 1990s were a good time for music and rom-coms, but the beauty trends from that decade were a mixed bag (yet still undoubtedly better than the 2000s). You have a few iconic trends that have withstood the test of time — who doesn’t love a bold red lip or a subtle lip gloss? — but on the other hand, you have stick-thin eyebrows and the infamous porcupine updo. Those memorable ’90s beauty trends are tucked away in the confines of a memory where they will hopefully stay forever.
Still, we look back on the time with great fondness. If at some point you rocked some fabulously flipped ends or know the struggles of trying to wash off body glitter, then you’re a ’90s kid and therefore probably get weirdly nostalgic when you see a picture of stick-on earrings. Ahead, we invite you to take a trip down memory lane as we round-up the best beauty trends from the ’90s.
