Throwback Thursday: Nineties Supes Forever
Throwback Thursday is a new feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Models: Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista
The Moment: Larger-than-life lashes, big brows, and dramatic cat-eyes
The Motivation: If there’s one look that will stand the test of time, it’s big, flirty lashes and a seductive cat-eye (see Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture for further evidence). From Brigitte Bardot and old Guess ads to, yes, even the sisters Kardashian, the enduring combination is the ultimate sign of sexed-up femininity. Adding a full, groomed brow, a neutral, heavily lined lip, and a pre-big-tobacco-crackdown cigarette gives this particular spread an undeniably nineties feel, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not prime for a reprise; the decade that pioneered dark excess before segueing into minimalism and grunge is having a moment, in case you hadn’t noticed.
