Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you’re all doing well!
For this blog post, I wanted to focus on a particular makeup theme that still inspires my makeup looks to this day. The ’90s Supermodel Look, brought to you by ‘The Trinity’ of supermodels Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington respectively. The ’90s supermodel era embodied the sculpted, magnificence and sultriness in Makeup. All matte, all defined and all bronzed – brown tones were all the rage when it came to really enhancing your inner cat-eyed bombshell, a timeless look that soon paved the way for a lot of the shapes/styles we see in makeup today, (besides drag in the ’90s of course ♥️).
In my rendition of the classic style, I focused on the contour of the skin and the eyes (as blended in as I could get it), the liner and the sort of, one tone look to the skin without looking too flat in the face with my foundation. I also combed through my brows with a lighter brown shade to lighten them a little for a more dated effect (optional) but I liked how it turned out. This method can really change the way your entire face looks (be warned, lol) but it was so much fun! ^-^
A black pencil (used to lightly feather in my brows)
TooFaced Eyeshadow In Panther to fill in more sparse areas
L’Oréal True Match Foundation to lighten them
Used the Nip+Fab Contour Palette in Dark as eyeshadows to enhance, define and contour the eyes. Shaded in a little higher than my natural crease definition.
I then went in with “Tempera” from the Modern Renaissance Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette to lift the shadow on the middle of the lids to the inner corners of the eyes.
This part was pretty straightforward considering I did most of the work using different tones of brown eyeshadow. This step definitely defined the eyes since it was the only black that I used on the eyes (+mascara).
My current fave: Poundland (purple packaging)
Nip+Fab Illuminator in “Dark Golden”
Foundation- Fenty Beauty Foundation in 440
Concealer/Highlight- Fenty Beauty Foundation in 440 mixed in with Elizabeth Arden Creme Foundation in Ivory 01 (a tiny bit)
RCMA No Colour Powder (Still a fave and I absolutely love the blurring effect this gives, however, if you’re looking for a powder that will keep you matte all day… this isn’t the one ^-^)
Nip+Fab Contour Palette “Dark” (I legit used all the 6 shades including this bright orange as a blush!)
Sleek Blush Palette in “Sugar”
You all may have seen me talk about this method here and there, but I actually used a brown pencil from Elizabeth Arden, applied a nude lipstick from Primark and topped it off with my concealer of choice to really achieve that pouty, skin-toned nude result.
I hope this post gives you a little inspo for your looks this Spring-Summer, I’m currently loving this creative expansion that nostalgic images are bringing in a lot of our modern looks!
Is this a look that you’d wear, will wear or have already have worn? Let me know in the comments as I’d love to know!
Thank you all so much for stopping by The Belper!
Lots of love,
