The Hottest 90's Trend


If you are a ’90s kid or have loved watching movies and TV shows from that era, you probably already know that browns dominated the ’90s girl aesthetic.  Thinking of 90s style, there were so many beauty trends (both good and bad) that we thought we left in the past–  overplucked eyebrows, shimmery makeup, butterfly clips, and brown lipstick to name a few. And since everything seems to circle back, the one beauty fad that’s making the rounds in 2021 is the brown lip liner trend. 

And as for pairing it with certain makeup looks, there’s a lot of versatility with brown lipsticks. You can wear it with a daytime look or for a big night out. Ready to take a time machine back to the ‘90s? Here’s the step-by-step guide on how to pull off this trend like a pro!

Your Guide To Acing This Supermodel-Approved Trend From The ’90s

Prep For A Flake-Free Pout

Start by using a lip scrub cause it’s the perfect way to buff away the dead skin accumulated. It will make your lipstick application so much smoother and make your pout look super stunning. You’ll also notice that your lipstick won’t crack or flake even after a few of hours.

Line It Like A Pro

Kim Kardashian is the ultimate beauty queen and there’s no denying it. Right now Kim is busy bringing back this ’90s high-contrast lip liner trend. All you need to do is focus the liner on the outer corner of your lips before lightly feathering it around the rest of the mouth. Be sure to select a darker shade of brown to get that perfectly plump look. Fill it in with a peachy-nude hue that serves as a 21st-century take on this throwback trend.

Coat It With A Gloss

As much as we loved the look back when Jennifer Lopez and the Spice Girls were wearing it – the iterations sweeping the ‘gram right now are ultra-glam and are a great way to elevate even the most basic makeup look. From Ariana Grande to Shay Mitchel- all the celebs are playing up this retro trend. If you want to go for high-shine lacquered lips, switch it up by layering it with a gloss in a neutral brown hue- the contrasting textures will make your look eye-catching.
