Say Goodbye To The Black, Smokey Eye Because Brown Hues Are All The Rage Now

Nostalgia is very in! By now, you’ve probably noticed that scores of celebrities are on board with ’90s beauty trends. The fashion girls are revisiting the archives to bring back the retro trends. We’ve seen Bella Hadid rock needle-thin brows, Dua Lipa make a case for a frosted lid, and Iris Law nail the high shine lips trend. That said, there’s another ‘90s throwback trend hogging the beauty spotlight RN and that’s the classic brown eye. Although the fad disappeared for a while, it’s back and better than ever in 2022. 

Unlike a frosted lid, a brown eyeshadow is super versatile. It can be dressed up with a lacquered lip or pared back with a nude or matte texture. Brown shadow is a trend worth trying out to help your peepers realize their most glamorous potential. It helps bring out depth and dimension like whoa, and we’re officially sold. Ready to rock the ‘90s beauty trends? We’re sharing the guide to creating the perfect ‘90s brown eye.

Here’s A Step-By-Step To Try The Classic Brown Eye Trend

Choose A Brown Hue That Suits Your Skin Tone

Brown eyeshadow allows you to go as simple or bold as you desire. Look out for an eyeshadow product that strikes the perfect balance between powder and cream. Cool-toned brown hues were everything in the ‘90s. If you’re looking to nail the look, we recommend opting for something like Chanel Stylo Ombre Et Contour in the shade Contour Clair or Electric Brown. Choose whichever one suits you, and feel free to just go in. Swipe it heavily across the base of your lids

Blend Outwards And Upwards

Using a fluffy eye brush, blend the creamy texture upwards and slightly outwards towards the outer eye corners. This will help elongate the eye a bit. The finish should likely be a slightly transparent mid-tone brown.

Lightly Line The Bottom Lashes

Next, lightly line the bottom lashes with the same pencil, and in true ‘90s fashion, smudge it out using your finger.

Mascara FTW!

Complete the look with a coat of black mascara. Don’t apply too much as brown eyeshadow is really the focus. 

Opt For A Creamy Matte Foundation

Talking about the rest of the face, we recommend upgrading from a matte powder foundation to a lighter finish for 2022. What we’re looking for is a creamy-matte formula that gives a melt-into-your-skin kind of coverage. Begin with the under-eye area, swipe a bit on the sides of your nose, and laugh lines. Spot treat any blemishes if required and blend into the skin with your fingertips. If you need a little more coverage, go in with Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation, and blend outwards towards the edges of your face. It’s the perf formula to provide coverage to small areas like under the eyes or around the nose. 

Perfect That Pout

There are tons of lipstick shades that are specifically reminiscent of the ‘90s. Apply this and they’ll surely do a double take.

Try this beauty trend and wait for all the compliments to roll in!
