In the spirit of #throwbackthursday or #tbt for short I thought I would share 3 beauty trends from the 1990s. It’s kind of funny to see how some of these are coming back. I was born in 1989 so my childhood was a mix of the 1990s and 2000s. I don’t know about you but I always enjoy a trip down memory lane so let’s dive in, shall we?
Scrunchies were present in both the 1980s and the 1990s and I recall having a bunch of them when I was younger in an assortment of colours and patterns. Nothing beat jazzing up a basic ponytail with a leopard print scrunchie! I don’t really remember when I stopped wearing them but I have noticed they are popping up again as I cruse instagram.
Dark Lip Liner
When going through pictures of the women I idolized in the 1990s I noticed a lot of dark lip liner which was at least a few shades darker than the gloss or lipstick it was paired with. Personally, I don’t see the appeal of this look but, never say never. Though I don’t mind it in the photo above as it is a less extreme example.
Butterfly clips… I loved these things so much. It was always a sad day when one broke. I haven’t really seen these come back at all. However, I was walking up the stairs at work a few months ago and I saw one abandoned in the stairwell. I wondered where it had come from! They were such a fun way to pull some of your hair off your face. I would love to see these come back!
What trend from the 1990s do you think will come back next? Let me know in the comments below!
