Nineties Lips

A nineties trend I have noticed recently (and that is really floating my boat) is the Dani Behr style lip liner, I love it!  I remember absolutely loving her face as a young teenager but always knowing I was a bit too young to pull off the look!  Funnily enough, one of the lovely makeup artists I work with a lot used to do her makeup back in the day, so I'm very pleased someone so close to home was responsible for the look I so desperately wanted to wear.  Other people who often sported this full, nude liner look were Pamela Anderson and Cindy Crawford.

Its pretty over the top and Pam looks like shes almost drawn in a moustache, I don't know what it is about this look but I can't get enough of it!  It probably has something to do with the fact that I grew up in an age when all the hot ladies were wearing it...

I was most pleased when I saw these advert campaigns, because now I have an excuse to start wearing it myself and not feel like a nineties throwback...



Not great quality pics as I got them from google images, but hopefully you have seen them already, or if not look out for them (they're everywhere) and have a close look at the lips, I think its such a simple and easy look to wear and also helps to achieve a fuller looking pout.

I was thinking Mac Stone lip liner is around the right shade but possibly too dark?   Let me know if you have any suggestions for a good browny/pinky/nude liner!


  1. Omg I was all about the liner and nude lip look in my teens, dnt think i pulled it off as well as these tho. I do really like it when its done right x x

  2. I've been noticing this around too, and I have to admit I think it looks great. I'm on the look out for a good liner too, haven't found one as of yet, so I'm not much help sorry!xx

  3. just found your blog and i love it :) x

  4. Glad its not just me!

    Thanks Becky! x
