It seems like everywhere you look, you see a new trend developing. From clothes, to shoes, to handbags, keeping up with the latest trends can be pricey. Being a college student I am also looking for a great deal. Which is why I developed my YouTube channel. Every makeup/ outfit is affordable and “the average girl” can afford to have the same look! Since I have a beauty channel and I am consistently keeping up with the latest trends and trying to find the affordable version for my viewers.

A trend that has been huge this year is the “90’s inspired makeup”. I have been obsessed with this trend and have found the perfect affordable version. 90’s makeup consists of brown-nude lips, heavy winged liner, long bold lashes, and minimal bronzer. So without further ado here is my affordable guide to achieve this look!

The first thing you’ll need is a brown eye shadow to apply in your crease. This specific palette is great because it brings all the right shade of browns you need for this look. The darkest brown should be applied on the crease of your eye, while the lightest color should be applied on the brown bone and lid. This palette is only $8 dollars and can be found in any drugstore!

Next you will need a liquid eyeliner. This is the key to this look. As well as finding the perfect liner and creating the perfect wing. This eye liner is long wearing, and is only $2 dollars! The key to creating the perfect wing is PRACTICE!

Finding mascara can be a hassle, but after much trial and error. I also end up going back to this one. Just a few coats of this on each eye gives you a full length flirty eye, not to mention it’s only $6 dollars!

Last but certainly most important with this look in particular are the lips! Since you are wearing minimal makeup on your eyes, your lips is what is going to make a statement with this look. Since the “90’s look” is in trend brown lipstick with nude undertones is what will pull this look together. To some people brown lipstick may sound daring but the great thing about this trend, is that brown looks great on every skin tone! The secret is finding a brown lipstick that has nude undertones that way it will even out and create the perfect “90’s lip”. This one in particular is “Ginger Spice” and it’s only $9 dollars!

Here is my “90’s inspired look, using all the products I mentioned above! Don’t forget to check my YouTube channel- beautybystephanier for more tip and tricks!
