Looks From the ’90s

Radios played Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Lilith Fair and Mariah Carey. It was the ’90s, and everyone was all about Oprah, Doc Martens and flannel shirts. Cellphones were a new thing, and email was just starting. And there was makeup to be worn. If you’re looking back to the ’90s, consider these five looks that are Chic Studios approved! In our Professional Makeup Artistry course, we cover the history of makeup and how it has changed throughout the years. For more information on our courses, check them all out here.

1. Grunge

Dark liner, pale red eyeshadow and matte lipstick are required to bring back heroin chic. After applying foundation, line eyes with a soft black pencil and apply a light red shadow to lids, using darker red or brown to create depth. Avoid eyeshadows with an abundance of glitter of shimmer — ’90s grunge was more matte, giving off a sense of angst, unease, and a sleepless night of live music and post-performance partying. Dark red, burgundy, blue-gray or russet lipstick is a hallmark of grunge lips. Finish the face with a light application of mascara. Darken brows, brushing them upward or leaving them as is. This look is anything but precise and polished.

2. Angel

This dewy, bare-eyed look conjures yoga, massage therapy and environmental awareness. You’ll need moisturized skin, illuminating BB cream, concealer, gel blush, highlighter, lip tint and a palette of shadows to complement skin tone. Apply the cream or concealer to mask flaws and blemishes, avoiding full coverage. Contour with caution, using just a touch of blush and a bit of highlighter on the cheekbones. Shadow the eyes with tones that closely match the color of lids, avoiding dramatic contrasts. Skip mascara, but consider a touch of creamy lip color a shade darker than the natural lips. The idea is to create the look of just emerging from a massage or yoga class, glowing with health.

3. Melons & Berries

A hybrid of grunge and angel, these looks were seen on TV shows such as “Friends,” “Will & Grace” and “Melrose Place.” For this style, you’ll need a range of complexion products, dark brown or black liner, mascara, brow pencils, and a deep berry, plum or melon-colored lipstick with a matte or creamy sheen. (avoid frosts). Apply foundation and powder all over, full coverage, not “cakey.” Shape and darken eyebrows to emphasize eyes, which should be fully lined in brown or black. Don’t hold back on the mascara, followed by lipstick with a heavy hand, blotting with a tissue.

4. Supermodel

Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss, Jill Ireland, Naomi Campbell, RuPaul and Iman defined ’90s glamour, making magazine history with bronze, bold faces. To achieve supermodel-like sculpted cheeks, smoldering eyes and arched eyebrows, you’ll need every tool in your makeup bag. Start with a clean face and full consideration of skin tone and coloring. Contour with foundation, blush and highlighter. Create dramatic eyes with liquid or pencil eyeliner and dark eyeshadows — plums and burgundies were popular — shaping in almond or catlike styles. Add shimmer just below the eyebrows and plenty of mascara. Lips can be lined a shade lighter or darker than lipstick, which might be dark, neutral or even flesh-toned.

5. Ska

Jamaican-inspired ska music boomed in the 1990s, and pop queen Gwen Stefani introduced an infectious look copied by many and envied by even more. A retro look on its own, the ska style requires a 1950s aesthetic with a touch of Eastern mysticism. To achieve Gwen’s ’90s look, shape eyebrows into thin arches and darken them with a black or brown pencil. After concealing flaws or perfecting skin with BB cream or powder, use liquid liner or a cosmetic ink marker to shape eyes into dramatic cat shapes, applying dark shadow to create more depth. False lashes or heavy mascara add more punch. Complete the look with dark red lipstick, matte or cream, and a few stick-on face jewels. Gwen liked to put hers between the eyebrows.

Very obvious fact: The ‘90s are back—and absolutely taking over. I’m talkin’ major ‘90s hairstyles vibes (TikTok is now just a mix of face-framing tendrils and middle parts; prove me wrong), ‘90s fashion (ahem, see: buckets hats and baguette bags), and, yup, even ‘90s makeup (hi, glitter eyeshadow and matte, full-coverage foundation). And though we’re seeing a resurgence of a zillion different beauty trends, one in particular is starting to gain some momentum, but with a newer, more modern twist: grunge makeup.

Grunge makeup, FYI, was a whole ‘90s ~lewk~ characterized by smudgy eyeliner, matte skin, heavy mascara, and dark lipstick, all in various shades of black, brown, or burgundy, and all to give off a casual, messy, IDGAF vibe. And though today’s grunge revival still has elements of the past, like earthy colors, heavy eyes, and bold lips, it’s also a bit cleaner, more precise, and infinitely more wearable for 2021—i.e., it won’t make you look like you just slept in three-day-old makeup.

So whether you’re trying to pay style homage to your mom, or you’re looking for some upcoming Halloween makeup inspo (hey, I get it), or you just really wanna cash in on that ‘90s aesthetic before everyone else does, I rounded up the seven best grunge makeup ideas to copy asap.

4This Burgundy Grunge Makeup Idea

Honestly, grunge is half about the makeup, and half about the attitude, so as long as you mirror these ~fierce~ vibes, you'll be set. But if you wanna go full grunge, line your eyes with burgundy gel liner (try Covergirl Exhibitionist Kohl Eyeliner or Shiseido Kajal Ink Artist Shadow), then gently smudge the liner out with a smudge brush. Let the liner set for a minute, then keep repeating (lining and smudging) until you've got a thick, dark, moody eye.

    90’S GRUNGE MAKEUP VS. ITS MODERN REVIVAL - A SIDE BY SIDE TUTORIAL f/ Wet N Wild ‘Rosé in the Air'

    90s Grunge Makeup Look | Authentic Tutorial And Historical Context

    Want to try out the authentic 90s grunge makeup look, or just learn more about the history of iconic style?

    We’ve got you covered.

    We break down the authentic 90s grunge makeup and style so you can recreate it at home. Plus, we explain the cultural context, along with the rise and fall of this famous look!

    Just keep reading!

    1990s Grunge Makeup & Style

    The 90s grunge makeup trend fluctuated from either looking like you forgot to put any on or forgot to take it off at night! Grunge encapsulated both the effortless no-makeup makeup look and the thick black kohl, pale foundation, nude (or deep red/purple) lips, and no blush or bronzer face.6

    Did you know?: Teen Spirit deodorant (Nirvana’s famous song was named after this brand) became a huge seller in the 1990s because of the success of Smells Like Teen Spirit. 2

    Women in the 90s who hopped on the grunge trend sometimes opted for no makeup at all for a complete ‘I don’t care’ look. Other times, they went heavy on the lips with no eye makeup or dark eyes with otherwise muted makeup. Or for the full grunge look – they combined a dark lip with dramatic smudged kohl eyes.

    Pale Skin With Little Face Makeup

    The 90s grunge makeup look was characterized by less is more.3 Even with dramatic eyes or lip makeup, the look should appear effortless and not perfectly applied.

    In spite of the growing concern around the safety of tanning, the tanned skin look was still pretty popular in the mainstream 1990s makeup trends. However, it was not as popular as it once was in the 1970s and a slightly lighter tan was in fashion. As a trend that was generally anti-mainstream, the grunge specific look was characterized by looking very pale.3

    Your base makeup should be paler than you actually are to lighten up the skin.

    To get the authentic grunge look, make sure you opt for matte skin – modern dewy skin was a huge no-no!

    Apply a matte foundation and concealer in a lighter shade.

    The mainstream makeup look featured brown or neutral blush colors in the 1990s, but the girls who loved grunge music typically didn’t wear any noticeable blush because being ultra pale was part of the trend.5

    Skip the blush, bronzer, and definitely don’t apply highlight for the authentic look.

    Dramatic Kohl Eye Makeup

    While the mainstream 90s look featured a more natural earthy-toned eyeshadow, the grunge look typically revolved around the black kohl smudged eye look. 5

    Although the grunge look pretty consistently featured paler foundation with no blush or bronzer makeup on the skin, those in the grunge scene liked to mix it up when it came to their eye and lip makeup. Sometimes they went for heavy eyes and lips, other times they rocked deep intense red or black lips with nothing on the eyes.3

    The grunge makeup look of 90s was androgynous. Typically, women darkened their eyes with black smudged pencil kohl liner on both the top and bottom eyelids. This was smudged in with fingers for a messier eye, often with the addition of vaseline for that slept-in look. A lot of grunge rockstars also applied this style of eye makeup on stage. 3

    Smudge kohl eyeliner across both your top and bottom lids and add a tiny bit of vaseline for a more slept-in, glossy look.

    Eyebrows in the 1990s were in contrast to the 1980s bushy and unplucked look. The 90s brow was typically well-shaped and well-groomed, but often also overplucked. 5

    If you have thin eyebrows, keep them pretty much as they are. If they are overplucked that will add to the grunge style. For thicker eyebrows, don’t fill them in too much to get the authentic look.

    Plum Or Maroon Shade Lipsticks

    The 1980s had extremely colorful (often clashing) eyeshadows and colorful lipsticks like orange, frosted pinks, and fuchsia. 5

    In the 1990s, brown shades (coffee, raisin, caramel) were super popular on the lips and women also liked red russet and purple lip glosses. 5

    Bobby Brown released a ton of nude lipstick colors in 1991, a strong contrast from the bright trend on the eyes and lips in the 1980s. The nudes set the standard of the 1990s. While the mainstream looks featured nude and caramel lip shades, the grunge look opted for plums and maroons.5

    Add a plum or maroon lipstick to get the authentic grunge look (it doesn’t have to be applied perfectly). You could also go nude on the lips if you have very dramatic eyes and want to tone down the look a little bit.

    Messy Disheveled Hair Look

    90s grunge aims to achieve that just rolled out of bed look.1

    And this applied not just to the makeup look – but also the hair and fashion.

    The mid-1990s grunge style, in particular, was epitomized by an unkempt hairdo and the slept-in-my-makeup look. 5

    Both men and women rocked the long hair look in the grunge scene. It was not the time to use a straightening brush – they wanted their hair to look a bit dirty and disheveled. 6

    Bushy, backcombed, messy hair looks great with this look. Keep it as disheveled and as messy-looking as possible. But if you have naturally pretty straight hair you can keep it just as it is without any styling and that will look great with the grunge makeup and fashion!

    Grunge Relaxed & Casual Fashion

    Some saw grunge as the anti-fashion of the 1990s. 6

    Grunge fashion typically featured muted colored clothing on the body. It was a very thrift shop style, with inexpensive and relaxed plaid shirts, ripped old jeans, and boots the signature look. 6

    grungy look

    In November 1992, an article in The New York Times “Grunge: A Success Story” explained the grunge fashion code. 4

    • Plats: platform shoes
    • Kickers: heavy boots
    • Fuzz: woolen sweaters
    • Wack slacks: old looking ripped jeans

    During this era, grunge fans loved to accessorize with face and body piercings. 3

    The Origins And Demise Of The Grunge Trend

    The very beginning of the 1990s decade was characterized by huge hair, statement shoulder pads, and intense makeup. However, in 1993, the rise of grunge completely threw a spanner in the makeup and style works. Grunge was a much more laid back look than the intense makeup period just 3 years before.3

    Grunge music became huge in the 90s and the music videos often featured a relaxed flannels-and-baggy-jeans casual fashion look. This was a complete change from the previous decades of the sleek, carefully done and neat hairstyles. Grunge music and culture rejected this ‘fakeness’ of the overdone look.2

    Seattle was a hot spot of grunge music, including Nirvana (whose lead singer Kurt Cobain was the big icon of the grunge look). Cobain influenced the high fashion world and Kate Moss was the poster model for this more relaxed look.

    From The Underground To The Mainstream

    Alexander McQueen and Dries Van Noten were very influential fashion designers during the grunge era.3

    Models Kristen McMenamy (who rocked a 20s style bob cut and shaved brows) and Eve (with an iconic shaved tattooed head) contrasted with the more traditional looking 90s supermodels like Naomi Campell and Linda Evangelista.3

    Celebrities who were inspired by the grunge trend included Winona Ryder, Alicia Silverstone, and Angelina Jolie, and Johnny Depp. 3

    1990s grunge makeup and fashion was a big cultural moment for Generation X.

    Gen X was about not wanting to grow up and not having to, and saying that it was not the baby boomers’ culture anymore.” – Erin Smith of Bratmobile. 4

    The Fall Of Grunge

    The grunge look was criticized for its perceived influence on the culture.

    “Fashion photos in the last few years have made heroin addiction seem glamorous and sexy and cool… you do not need to glamorize addiction to sell clothes.” – President Bill Clinton 6

    In 1992, Marc Jacobs became heavily inspired by grunge music and culture. However, this was quite late for a fashion designer, who should have been well ahead of the trend, to jump on the bandwagon. It was already mainstream! 4

    Marc Jacobs went pretty thrifty to keep his grunge look somewhat authentic. He picked out plaid fannels (that he bought for less than 10 dollars a pop) and sent them to Italy to be remade into silk that cost 1000 dollars per yard. He took woolen caps from thrift stores to create slouchy cashmere. He released his grunge collection in November 1992. 4

    The models on the runway included Carla Bruni, Christy Turlington, and Helen Christensen. But Kate Moss was the star of the show because she looked effortless in the low key makeup and undone hair aesthetic. Kate Moss was the embodiment of the grunge movement. 6

    However, only Wintour praised the grunge collection and Marc Jacobs was accused by the mass media of killing off the grunge look. 4

    “Grunge: 1992 – 1993 R.I.P… Grunge has run its course… For many, Marc Jacobs’ grunge fashion collection was the final shove. ” – New York Times magazine. 4

    Jacobs’ failed because he wasn’t the trendsetter – he was trying to follow an existing trend. 4

    Not long after Marc Jacobs’ show, Kurt Cobain was snapped in a black t-shirt with the words “Grunge Is Dead” printed on it. 4

    “Punk was anti-fashion. It made a statement. Grunge is about not making a statement, which is why it’s crazy for it to become a fashion statement.” – Details editor, James Truman. 4

    1990s grunge was a fairly quick trend and Kurt Cobain’s untimely death was a big factor in the fall of grunge. 2
