90s Page 1 Image 0001Photographer: Rebecca Miller

Pay homage to the ’90s with a makeup look that's totally now.

The early-’90s look wasn’t all babydoll dresses and steel-toe Doc Martens. It was also flawless skin, shimmery eyes, and an ultra-dark matte lip (think Drew Barrymore in her grungy flower child heyday and braces-era Gwen Stefani). Thanks to the decade’s current comeback, this combo is looking better than ever. Makeup artist Kristin Hilton tells us how to get it.
