The ’90s was a strange time in my childhood, I was old enough to notice my surroundings but too young to understand them. Looking back it was a time of both rebellion and sophistication and interestingly, both had overlapping elements. Pale skin, deep lips and a hazy eye look is my 1990s beauty recreation.
An earthy brown cream shadow is blended all over the eyelid and below as well to create a hazy wash of colour followed by a smudge of black eyeliner between the lashes, just following the shape of the eye but not extending past the outer corners. Brows are kept light in tone but defined in shape in order to frame the eye area but not overshadow the lip colour and to prevent the look from going into retro territory.
Finish the look by applying thin layers of a bruised red lipstick with fingers, creating a deep stained effect with soft edges, building intensity as desired. False lashes are optional. The finished effect should be both soft yet saturated with the lips as the main focus but not loosing definition in other parts of the face.
