’90s Inspired Glam

My daughter’s school is doing a theme week and tomorrow she chose to do the “90s”. Since I won’t be awoke to Glam her over, we decided to do a makeup look that was the trend or style as we use to say.

In the ’90s the makeup wasn’t over the top, more of simple, yet beautiful. Earth tones with glossy lips was the style. So I made her over based upon how I some what wore my makeup in high school.

Product information:

Brows: Elf Cosmetics brow gel with Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream contour kit

Eyes:

Too Faced Cosmetics shadow insurance primer

Absolute Cosmetics palette

No name brown gel liner

eBay lashes

Face:

La Colors Cosmetics primer

Covergirl foundation “Tawny”

Maybelline Fit Me foundation “Coconut”

Ruby Kisses Cosmetics powder contour kit

Wet n Wild highlighter

I used a shimmer shadow from my eyeshadow kit as a blush

This look was quick, simple, yet modern.this was a 15 minute look for me I did not wear false lashes in school just a lot of Maybelline mascara and I did not wear liquid foundation just a Covergirl press powder also no highlight and no contour so I really modernize this look to be up to date but still pay homage to an era that was a best time to live the age before modern technology.

Primary Colors

Tonight’s makeup look was inspired by the primary colors. As a makeup artist or anyone in the beauty, fashion, and art profession knows that the primary colors are the start to making other colors. I decided to try something new, I have never mismatched my eye colors before so this was definitely fun. I’m also trying out a new foundation, contour, and highlight routine as well. I don’t know how to feel about this yet, but anything to save time and cut my full Glam face to 45 minutes per person.
