It's 1999: You've got your Nokia cell phone in one hand and a holographic handbag in the other. With hair twisted into a claw clip, spewing volcanically from the crown of your head and brows that have been plucked to oblivion, you're the poster child for every iconic '90s beauty look that now makes you cringe.
Perhaps you've blocked the most embarrassing ones from memory. You know, as a sort of coping strategy? The skunk-like highlights. The up-to-your-brows blue eyeshadow. The buckets of body glitter that wound up on your bedroom floor. The yearbook pictures alone are enough to lose sleep over.
Yet Gen Zers like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner continue to pluck trends from the time capsule — crimped hair, butterfly clips, face-framing tendrils, brown lipstick — and drop them right back into the rotation as if it were 1997 again. The ones that haven't already been summoned are bound to resurface in due time.
Today, you see snippets of your childhood all over Instagram, on the runway, on the subway, or wherever, and if you've maintained your coolness after all these years, you're rocking the '90s look nowadays as well. A few trends from the decade, for nostalgia's sake, ahead.
Back in the day, we wanted our lips to be just a shade lighter than our actual flesh and to have a sort of icy sheen to them. Remember? Glossy-to-the-point-of-being-sticky and sometimes with an iridescent finish was the ideal pout. Mandy Moore circa-"Candy" was the prime example of this.
This is Us stars Justin Hartley and Mandy Moore will be hosting NBC's 6th annual Red Nose Day special on Thursday at 9 p.m. EDT.
Hartley made the announcement Monday on Today where he discussed how the organization raises money to help end child poverty.
"This organization in five years has raised over $100 million here in the United States, affecting 25 million children so far positively," Harley said.
"It's amazing, it's wonderful to be a part of that and I'm excited," he continued.
Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, OneRepublic, Ellie Goulding, Steve Martin, Sam Smith, James Taylor, Meghan Trainor, Tony Hale, Jim Gaffigan, Lilly Singh, Bryan Cranston, Mario Lopez, Milo Ventimiglia, Noah Jupe, Steep Canyon Rangers, Adrienne Warren and Ray Romano are also set to appear during the special.
