The more things change, the more things stay the same, as the saying goes, and this year’s fall looks certainly have a fun 90s throwback twist. You can expect to see lots of glitter, the triumphant return of blue eyeshadow, and a bit more eye bling thanks to the hit show “Euphoria” that’s inspiring Instagram makeup artists and those of us here at Makeover Essentials.
Also, be on the lookout for neon corners this autumn. While a full neon lid might draw too much attention when compared to the traditionally darker fall tones, we still crave a pop of color. We dust our go-to Makeover Essentials summer shadow just in the corner of our eyes for normal days, but when we’re feeling bolder, we cover our entire lids in a bright crybaby blue for the full 90s fantasy.
Darker lip liner is making a surprise comeback from the decade of grunge as well. Paired with subtle browns and gold highlights, this is a guaranteed head-turner. Of course, if we’re on the subject of turning heads, we need to consider the wine-colored palette of lipsticks that were so popular at the end of the 20th century. A rich burgundy or Bordeaux pairs perfectly with fresh skin and your favorite mascara. Or take the wine colors to your eyes as well for a dramatic date-night look.
We’re swimming in 90s nostalgia, and we’ve never looked better! Follow Makeover Essentials on Pinterest to learn how to make fall even more colorful.
