Iconic '90s Beauty Looks We’ll Never Forget

There’s a certain timeless flair that the beauty on TV and film in the 1990s executed so iconically. From staying up until 1 am to watch The Nanny (1993) reruns, specifically for Fran Drescher’s style, to seeing Clueless (1995) inspired looks become trendy today, the ‘90s never seem to do anything but inspire us. We’re here for it! The ‘90s showcased thin defined brows, nude-toned shadows, and rosy lined lips, everything was head to toe “iconic”. There’s something so special about this time capsule of beauty that we get to see come full circle in trends today. The looks were edgy, romantic, and incredibly memorable. We wanted to curate a nostalgic time capsule of inspiration from ‘90s beauty in our favorite TV and movie looks we adore.

Bella recreates this classic Cher-inspired Clueless look for us incorporating Pseudo Labs PHreckles in Shade 03. The defined brows, neutral shadow, and rosy lip really embody the iconic look that Cher is known for in the film.

Andreana created an ode to Carrie Bradshaw moment by recreating this unforgettable look worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the TV series. Mimicking those memorable waves, a bright lip, and a few faux freckles in Shade 03, brings this look to life!

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990)

The women on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990) were legends for their beauty and style moments. Of course, Hillary Banks played by Karyn Parsons is someone who paved the way for ‘90s iconic beauty moments. Her preppy styling paired with fresh, flirty, and bright makeup is truly stunning.

Jawbreaker (1999)

Nothing screams “‘90s” like Rose McGowan in Jawbreaker (1999). The dark, thin brows with sky blue shadows and bold lashes showcase the nostalgic glam of the time. Can we also mention the lip and outfit coordination? Something so bold just works so effortlessly.

Poetic Justice (1993)

This look was everything! Sometimes simplicity has the most impact. Janet Jackson in Poetic Justice (1993) was absolutely jaw dropping. That glow paired with a muted red lip created such a flawless beauty moment we adore. Add a simple liner and this ”cool-girl” look can be recreated, effortlessly.

Twin Peaks (1990)

Josie, played by Joann Chen in Twin Peaks (1990) showcased true ethereal beauty. Her makeup moments easily were the most mysterious and alluring of ‘90s TV. The classic red lip and brown smokey eye is a look we aspire to replicate.

Friends (1994)

There are too many iconic beauty moments in Friends (1994) to list, but Courtney Cox stole the show. The deep, rosy brown eyeliner and lips to match accentuate her features for that classic ’90s flair. Let’s be honest, the styling and makeup on the show had us pausing to recreate the looks like no other. What’s not to love?
