Your vanity may be currently stocked with bright colored Essie nail polish and a collection of half-used BB creams, but it wasn't always so sophisticated. Think back to what you stored in your makeup bag 20 years ago. It was full of shimmer, shine, and pastel hues. Remember all of those '90s beauty products every cool girl wore in order to look like a member of the 90210 squad? Gosh, don't you miss those glittery days?
Looking back on '90s style, people usually think about the clothing — the omnipresence of flannel and Doc Martins. Occasionally, '90s hairstyles get some attention, when peoplee reminisce about the days of scrunchies and butterfly clips. But what about all of the amazing beauty trends that graced the decade, and all of the essential products that made it possible?
From makeup to perfume to nail polish, it was an unbelievably fun decade for beauty. The products were colorful, the scents delicious, and they left you feeling so unbelievably cool. Nothing felt better than whipping the right lip gloss out of your Jansport and swiping it across your lips. Ah, a simpler time. So take a trip down memory lane, and think back on the '90s beauty items you stocked up on — and that you not so secretly wish you still had.
