90s Inspired Makeup

I took part in MakeupGeek's weekly challenge, again. This time, we were asked to create an era look. While many of the submissions were inspired by the 20s, 50s, 60s, 70s and even the 80s, I decided to rep the 90s. When I think of makeup from the early 90s, I think of matte looks (typically brown eyeshadow) that is blended upward and outward, full brows, beauty marks (a la Cindy Crawford), and berry/red lips. My muses (who I had in mind while I was putting on my makeup) were Aunt Becky from Full House and Brenda and Kelly from 90210, lol. I had trouble with my lighting and my camera, so these pictures don't really do the look justice. Nevertheless, I had fun!
