If you grew up lusting over lip-glossed, fresh-faced beauty looks of Alicia Silverstone in Clueless and Liv Tyler in Empire Records or the dark-lipped, gothic makeup of Fairuza Balk in The Craft, it is time to live out your 90s beauty fantasies. From long nails filed in oval shape to shimmery, pastel eye makeup and chic thick eyebrows, the trends from the nineties are taking over and how!

Bold eyebrows
It’s time to go au naturel with your brows. Just tweeze out the unruly strands and you are set. If you have a sparse set of brows, just use the brow pencil to fill them in. You can also use an eyeshadow in a hue darker than your hair to fill in your eyebrows and make them seem thicker.

Grunge look

Messy hair and barely there makeup is back again. All you need to do is to multi-task your lip glosses just like the nineties! Use a tinted one for your pout and dab the same on the apple of your cheeks to make them http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2014/4/180414-HTCity_pg7e.jpgpop. ­Air-dry your hair after deep conditioning for perfect unruly tresses.

Dark-hued lips
Nail the deep plum, brown or burgundy pout of the hottest divas of the nineties. All you need to do is to bust out your deep-hued lip liner, says makeup artist Sonia Chandola. Outline your lips and then fill them up with the same lip liner for dark, matte hue.

Oval shaped nails

The 90s version of nail art is just like the other over-the-top and edgy trends from this era. To get the oval shaped nails, you will need to grow your talons long enough to be filed into this shape. Or you can go the easy http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2014/4/180414-HTCity_pg7g.jpgroute and opt for plastic nail extension in a dark hue to rock this look!

Shimmery eyes
Give a modern touch to the 90s pastel, glittery eyeshadow look with a white eyeliner or kajal. Line your peepers to make them pop and make them seem bigger.
