Steps for hairStep 1:
If you’re starting with wet hair, blow-dry with a paddle brush so hair is straight and smooth. If your hair is already dry, brush out any knots or tangles to prep your hair for the flat iron. Ensure that hair is parted down the middle to capture the right vibe of the hairstyle.
Plug in a flat iron and turn the heat up about halfway. Once the iron has reached the right temperature, run small sections of your hair through to achieve straight, sleek strands. The ends of your hair don’t have to be stick straight; they can curl slightly inwards to still nail the look.
Reach for a medium-hold hairspray and lightly spritz strands from root to tip to keep your mane frizz-free and to hold the style in place.
Steps for makeup
Start this makeup look off with clean, bare lids. Using a fluffy blending eyeshadow brush, apply a taupe eyeshadow all over the lid. Try L’Oréal Paris La Nude Palette #5 as it’s a flattering neutral shade that has a slight shimmer texture to open up the eye. Buff the shade into the lid and ensure it’s evenly blended.
To help define your eyes and make your lashes appear thicker, apply Voluminous Liner Noir Liquid Liner in Blackest Black in a cat-eye shape. Begin at the outer corner of your eye and slowly work your way in to get a small, even line. The eyeliner should have a slight uptick at the outer corner of your lid to flatter the eye and pull it upwards.
Mascara is a must for a full, fanlike fringe. Brush two coats of X-Fiber Mascara through your upper and lower lashes to finish your eye look.
The final step to get a true ’90s beauty makeup look is to apply a brown-based lipstick. Colour Riche Lipstick in Spice 360 is a deep reddish brown that perfectly reflects the look of the decade. Use a flat lip brush to help get a clean, precise lip line.
And, just like that, you’re transformed into a ’90s video vixen. While this beauty look originated during that decade, many of the key parts of this style—brown lipstick, super-sleek strands and more—have made a comeback recently in the beauty biz and pop culture, which means that you’ll be perfectly on trend when you rock this makeup and hair in 2018 and beyond.
