90’s With a Twist Tutorial


I was quite young in the 90’s so I didn’t really pay much attention to makeup trends back in those days. Honestly, at 12 I was more interested in Disney movies than fashion and beauty.

Now at 29, I’m still obsessed with Disney, but I also pay more attention to beauty trends.

I was having some fun with my makeup this morning and came up with this pretty cool coloured eyeliner look, with a very 90’s edge. And for a change, I’m writing this up as a tutorial.



For the face, I kept things quite dewy. I used my Liz Earle Tinted Moisturiser and blended this into my skin with a buffing brush. Over any blemishes I dotted some Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, and Bare Minerals Stroke of Light Concealer under my eyes. These were blended in using a damp beauty sponge. I set my concealer using the MUA Luxe Highlighting Palette. These are all matte, so they work well as setting powders.

To give my face some colour, I first set my face using the Bare Minerals Bronzing Mineral Veil. I then added a subtle bit of contour using the Chanel Soleil de Tan, setting this with the Tanya Burr Peachy Glow Palette bronzer.

For blush, I stuck with the Tanya Burr palette, and buffed this lightly onto the apples of my cheeks, and swept the excess up towards my ear. I also used the highlighter from this palette, which was the only bit looking back that I hated. It looked a little chunky on my cheeks. But I did buff it out and it looked okay.


For my eyebrows I have been using the Benefit Brow Zings Palette in the shade 4 lately. This has a slightly more reddish brown shade in it which matches my hair perfect at the moment. I just brushed this through my brows, keeping them quite thick and natural looking. I set them in place using the Benefit Ready Set Brows Gel. To highlight my brow bone slightly I used a very light streak of my Lord and Berry Concealer Stick, which I got in this month’s Birchbox.

To prime my eyes, I used a small amount of the Bare Minerals Prime Time Lid Primer, and set it using the shade Early Sunrise from the Zoeva Rodeo Belle palette. In my crease I took a mixture of Cactus Flower and Rodeo Ready to soften my crease slightly. I then took a very light amount of Bare Minerals Original Eyeshadow in Java, concentrating on the outer part of my crease.

On the lid, I patted a light layer of Bare Minerals Original Eyeshadow in Bare Skin, and blended out the harsh edge slightly with the excess of Java on my blending brush.

I then grabbed the shade Smolder from the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette and ran this along the lower lash line.

For the purple eyeliner, I then took a touch of the L’Oreal Infallible Eye Paint  in Infinite Purple on a liner brush and created a small wing on my eyelids.

To finish off my eyes, I used the Maybelline Lash Sensation Mascara and Clinique Flutter to Full Mascara to give a natural full lash look.



The 90’s were well known for the brown lip shades. These did come back into fashion last year, and I reckon it’s here to stay.

To get my 90’s looking lips I first lined my lips using the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Lip Liner in Attitude to fill in my entire lips. I then took the Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Boss and applied this to my whole lip.

And that’s where I left things.


That is my whole 90’s look. I hope you enjoyed it. I’m now going to have a nice day out with my Mam and Dad.

Have a lovely day guys. Take care!
