Yes ya'll the 90's! Lol recently I've been listening to a lot of nineties R&B on Pandora. The makeup on the old album covers & me playing around with the WnW matte palette have kind of rekindled my love for some of the most popular makeup trends of the nineties. Haa. I don't know about ya'll but I loved the 90s! It seems like just yesterday, we were watching TGIF lol. I didn't really start wearing makeup til the late nineties & even then it wasn't a whole lot. But I certainly remember watching my mom & my older cousins. & For some reason this is what I think about when I see makeup like this. Powder matte faces with little to no contouring. Little to no blush with very neutral eyeshadow (matte for the most part). Topping it off with lined lips & a deep red or reddish brown lipstick (usually matte also).
I saw this a lot when I was obsessed with 90210 as a kid lol Brenda Walsh & Kelly Taylor are the ones who stand out the most to me from that show. I saw this a lot with Selena too. She rocked the brown matte shadows, lined lips & brick red matte lips very often. The winged liner was something that she wore a lot too. I've included some links to pics of Janet Jackson, Salt n Pepa, Brandy, & Aaliyah also. It's a look that's been around probably since the beginning of makeup, just tweeked here & revamped there to make it look a little different. It's nothing new but it totally reminds me of back in the day. Well on to my rendition!!
WnW I ♥ Matte Palette
I've been using this a lot! I think my love for all things matte comes from my infatuation with my mom's makeup lol. So the colors I used are pretty obvious. There's nothing really special to it. My outer v is poorly blended but it didn't too much bother me lol. I also added the Cosmo lashes from KKCenterHK. These particular lashes are shoreter than what I'm use to wearing now. They're close to my natural eyelashes & give a really good thickness. Normally, I wouldn't bother with short lashes but these give a really pretty natural look. They're shorter in the insides & longer on the outsides giving that almond eye effect.
NYC Plum Rum
Instead of the deep red, I went for a rum brown. This NYC color is EXACTLY like the WnW Spike With Rum matte lipstick.. minus the matte finish, of course. But they are the same exact color. My mom has both of these lipsticks too. They are the ones she swears by right now.
I freakin love wearing this combo. It's so simple to do but looks so "put together". It makes a statement without looking overwhelming. It's such a classic look in my book.
Yeah, he pretty much couldn't keep it a secret lol. My boyfriend is so sweet to me. He doesn't even have to do things like this for me but he always goes out of his way to surprise me. It's so cute. When he told me what he was getting me, I didn't really believe him lol but when I finally saw her I nearly died. She's just so adorable lol I seriously don't know how I ever lived without her haha. My first time on a webcam reaction was, "OMG one eyebrow is higher than the other!" LOL I was so weirded out.
All I do is make caras on this thing. Not sure if anyone cares lol but I'm wearing MAC's Dress It Up lipstick & Sinful Colors Wink lipgloss here & the purple from I ♥ Matte on the lids.
Hope you enjoyed my take on this look
& Thanks so much for stopping by.
