The '90s were known for a few different things. There were the boy bands. (Are you a Backstreet Boys or an NSYNC person?) There was the grunge music. (Hi, Nirvana.) There were the international supermodels. (Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and Christy Turlington come to mind.) And there were the iconic sitcoms (like Saved by the Bell, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Seinfeld… just to name a few). What we remember most about the '90s, though, are all the memorable fashion and beauty moments from celebs like Kate Moss, Drew Barrymore, Brandy, and Jennifer Lopez.
While we might cringe looking back at certain '90s beauty trends—namely those in which chunky highlights, frosty lips, and pencil-thin eyebrows were involved—there are others we remember (and re-create) fondly. So we gathered them all together right here. Keep scrolling to see the 11 best beauty looks from the '90s.
