Trend To Try: Grungy Eyeliner

WE remember the nineties fondly as the era of the Spice Girls, Clueless and The Rachel haircut. But we also have PTSD form the nineties. Should we remind you of butterfly clips (yes, grown females used to wear these!), plucked-to-death eyebrows and lipliner that didn’t actually need to match your lipstick choice. All these are enough to have us never want to think of that dark time in beauty history ever again…But a few of these trends are endearing, nay awesome. Here are five of the nineties flashback trends we’d give a go again.

Lower lid liner is making a comeback in a big way. Contrary to what you might think, grudge inspired eyes are an everyday, wearable make-up style. Draw it on and smudge it – that’s it. For an added bit of pretty, blend bronze powder eyeliner under the eyes.

I am Beauty Editor at People Magazine and a make-up artist. I have worked with many celebrities, including, Phumeza Mdaba, Boity, Zuraida Jardine and Rolene Strauss. I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
