There’s no denying that several 90s trends hit a little different this 2021, as they have resurfaced to trigger dear old nostalgic feelings. 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 the 90s makeup, you may not consider it to be overly relevant today, but it is.
Of course, you’d have no need to go full out like it was done in the 90s, but with a few tweaks here and there you’re sure to get a super impressive makeup look inspired by the 90s but relevant for today.

Yes, it’s about keeping a balance as you don’t want to risk appearing like you’re just stepping out from 1991.

The eyebrow way of life was super thin in between 1989 to the early 2000s. The thinner the brows were, the better. On the other hand, 2021 has given room for a more diverse range of eyebrows. That is to say that trying a strictly 90s brow game this 2021 isn’t likely to cut it. But there’s a way around that. Rather than thin out your brows, create delicate ones instead. Simply put, you should be filling in subtle strokes over your brows in place of thin, harsh lines. Problem solved.
