The 90s was an iconic decade for music, entertainment and fashion, meaning it inevitably created some great makeup trends that were definitive to the era. 'Grunge' makeup was inspired by the punk-rock scene of the early 90s, with many opting for darker, burgundy shades and a smoky, smudged out eye look.
This type of makeup look is especially perfect for the upcoming autumn and winter months as we tend to reach for the darker makeup shades. Although makeup looks have typically softened from this since then, there are elements of it that are still popular today and influence today's makeup trends. If the grunge makeup look isn't for you, other popular 90s makeup trends that defined the era include a lighter, pastel makeup look with frosted shades that was seen sported by pop-stars for iconic red-carpet looks, along with the classic supermodel glam of dark lip liner and thin brows.
