Throwback Thursday: We Love the Nineties


Milla-Jovovich-by-Peter-Lindbergh,-Allure-US-Dec-1996_resizeThrowback Thursday is a regular 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 Model: Milla Jovovich

The Moment: Nineties Grunge

The Motivation: If you haven’t already noticed, the nineties are back. From Hedi Slimane’s grunge collection for Saint Laurent to just about everybody else’s obsession with midriff tops, fashion is on repeat. And beauty insiders, for the most part, have taken the same route. On the red carpet and in editorials, there’s a return to the nude face and the no-makeup-makeup look popularized by supes like Linda, Christy, and Naomi. So it’s no surprise we’re slightly obsessed with this Peter Lindbergh-lensed shot of Milla Jovovich. Her clean skin, smudged eyeliner, and slicked-back, slightly mussed-up pompadour are everything we want to embrace this summer.
