90’s Drew Barrymore Inspired Look

17 Feb

What IS the 1990’s Drew Barrymore look? Generally, the 90’s had a matte monotone look that leaned towards neutral hues such as taupes, browns and to an extent cranberry-ish cheeks and lips. Think Kevyn Aucoin and Bobbi Brown. But Drew had her own signature look. She had the 1920’s-1930’s eyebrows, think Clara Bow. Super thin and round, no evident arch. Quite apart from each other, too. She barely had colors on her lids but had dark brown-red lips that stood out (of course, whilst sporting her signature smirk). She also became the model of GUESS, where she sported pretty much the same look but with sultrier eyes. I recreated the look the best way I know how and with what stuff I have, but I am afraid I can’t bring myself to shave off my eyebrows to make it look like hers. So I guess this is the more up-to-date look of Drew’s 90’s look (which is truly a 20’s flapper inspired look! See? Trends repeat itself!).  Of course it is not much of a Drew Barrymore look without DAISIES. Too bad we don’t have daisies sprouting in our garden!

This is the first time I listed all the stuff I used. Personally, I don’t like it because it limits the viewers.
They assume they have to use the same thing when that’s clearly not the case.
But in almost all beauty blogs and vlogs they list it down to save themselves the hassle of answering questions regarding what they used.
What do you think? Do I have to list/show them or just describe each (I prefer the latter).
Let me know by commenting below! ^_^

I used the Mememe products I showed in my previous post. This look serves as a demo on how you can use it!
Even the Sleek Pout Paint, it is not just for the lips! Did you see?
I learned that trick from gossmakeupartist. Awesome, yeah?
I used to own a Bobbi Brown Color Corrector (i lost it), so I guess this is a good alternative!

I hope you like this look. Don’t ever think it is only for Valentines!
HAPPY VALENTINES EVERYONE! ALL WE NEED IS LOVE!!!

HUGE THANKS TO LORRAINE ANG WHO SENT SOME STUFF!
