From chokers to crop tops to athleisure wear, ‘90s inspired pieces have become one of the biggest trends in fashion. This trend isn’t just confined to fashion though – some of the hottest makeup looks of the season have a definite Throwback Thursday vibe as well. Bold and neutral lipstick shades have become a staple in every woman’s makeup bag again, including a shade that hasn’t been seen since Friends was on TV – brown.
The shades of brown that are on trend this year range in tone, so you can choose one that works with your skin tone and the look that you want. From subtle shades with a hint of pink to deep, vampy browns, there’s a tone for every woman who wants to get back on board the ‘90s train. Here are some of the most popular shades and brands to get you started:
M.A.C Lipstick in Whirl
This M.A.C shade has become more popular since Kylie Jenner made it part of her makeup routine. Whirl has really subtle pink undertones that give it a softer look. Plus, it’s a matte shade so it’ll stay in place for hours before you need to reapply.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Rose Velvet
Rose Velvet from Revlon is like Whirl in that it has some rose shades in it. It also has a lustrous finish that gives it a hint of shine and helps condition your lips.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Vampira
Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick line is a personal favourite of mine. It goes on easy like a lip gloss but dries matte and stays all day. Vampira has more red in it, but is dark and, well, vampy. Wear this when you want to recreate séance scenes from The Craft.
Bobbie Brown Art Stick in Brown Berry
The Art Sticks sits between a lip liner and a lipstick and the crayon style makes application super precise. This brown shade sits more on the nude side of the spectrum. Wear it solo or build up to a darker brown lipstick shade by using it underneath a colour like Rose Velvet.
Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Molasses
This Bite Beauty shade is the closest you can get to a true ‘90s brown. The texture of these lipsticks is highly moisturizing, making for smooth application and a non-drying formula. Bite Beauty is definitely going to become the next big makeup brand.
