We still remember the crimping iron of our adolescence ... At the time, these frizzy curls were THE hairdo to impress the kids at our first parties. Crimped locks are back on the catwalks. However, today they are worn with more subtlety and grace. (Leave the mop in the closet, please!)
In the 1990s, it was all the rage to have shiny lips. Lip gloss was the beauty accessory par excellence. They had to shine and too bad if they were sticky. Pink or transparent, neutral or bubble gum flavor, gloss was everywhere.
To go with bright lips, we had to have glittering eyelids, right? Like proud mermaids, we had sequins and glitter all over our bodies. Please help keep the twenty-first century glitter-free!
Hmm ... the words "baby blue", "eyelids," and "glossy" should never appear in the same sentence! Yet they appeared on our faces in the 90s. The fad was to smear the eyes with light blue. We will not make that mistake again!
Lip liner is essential to the makeup bag, since it blends into the lipstick colour! In the 90s, the pencil used was at least 5 tones too dark. The Victoria Beckhams of the world were the worst offenders, but we were all guilty of this faux pas.
Lip Balm Jars
As teenagers, we all had a little jar of lip balm. We soaked our fingertips in it to spread the balm onto our lips. So did our girlfriends ... Sticky fingers full of bacteria: yikes! We have since been converted to the stick. Thank goodness.
Hair Tips Pointing Outwards
Drew's bob cut with outward-turned locks ... It is a look that can remain forgotten! Especially since there is no body and the locks are full of lacquer! We fell in love with this cut 20 years ago, but we let it pass into history, where it belongs!
The Strands Hanging at the Sides
The look of the two strands that fall along the face, it is simply impossible today. Let alone with a centre part. Or even worse, when the hair is actually extensions! But hey, we can forgive Kirsten Dunst, who has done her penance!
In the 1990s, the trend was to aggressively wax the eyebrows. To the point where they virtually disappeared. Having naturally thin eyebrows is fine, but pencilling them in like this only hardens the features. Thanks to Cara Delevingne for having brought back thick eyebrows!
