Of course, the fields of beauty and fashion had their own crown of glory in the 90's. Body modifications, tattoos, and piercings became prevalent during this decade, which lead to the revival of the minimalist fashion of the 50's and 70's. Women's makeup during the start of the 90's consisted of minimal eye makeup and dark red lipstick. The popularity of grunge music influenced the makeup style during this time. Around 1992-1994, the "grunge" look was common among young women. Ladies donned dark red lipstick and smudged eyeliner and eyeshadow for that seemingly "just got out of bed" look. If not the blood of angry men, the alternative colors such as plum were just as bold and dark. To complete the pale-as-snow effect, foundations used were lighter than the actual skin tone.
The mid-to-late-90's leaned more towards the natural side, choosing nude palettes and browner shades. Matte makeup became more popular, along with light shades of pink on the cheeks and on the eyes. One of the most recognizable trends of this era is the nude plump pout. Thanks to lip liners, women's lips looked fuller, pretty much almost like a Bratz doll's lip.
Thick eyebrows also made their way to the limelight during the 90's. Just like what girls today, brows back then were constantly groomed and filled in to create those on-fleek eyebrows sharp enough to stab your haters. Thankfully, those skinny, penciled-on eyebrows have been antiquated.
