Things Every 90s Girl Had In Her Make Up Case

While we thought we were at the height of style in the '90s, looking back on photos tells us otherwise. Mum, why did you let us rock those looks? As teenagers these days seem to be skipping the awkward puberty phase and heading straight to the Kylie Jenner look, we decided to take a look back at when beauty was simple...

Roll on glitter. It had a super weird smell and always made your skin go all hard and crinkly but it was the ultimate face accessory to the school disco. Slay.

Blue mascara. Nothing says fierce like a girl in blue mascara!

Impulse, Charlie or So...? body sprays. The Spice Girls version was a particular fave of ours.

Sun in. "Mum, please please please can I lighten my hair? PLEEEAAASSEE?!"

Jelly gloss. It tasted delicious, so naturally we may as well have just gobbled it straight from the tube rather than putting it on our faces first.

Concealer. How else would you make your lips the same colour as your face? We would PILE that sh*t on until we were as caked and oily as can be. Yum!

EVERYTHING in the Boots Glitter Babes collection. Perfume, nail varnish, body wash. GOD we were OBSESSED!

Dream Matte Mousse. This was (and still is for a lot of us) the go-to foundation for all of us and we'd NEVER use a make-up brush, darling.

Anything that came out of Sabrina's Secrets magazines, tbh. We were suckers for a freebie.

Hair mascara. We didn't care that it was all gloopy and didn't stay in very long, we were badass.

Clear mascara. If your mum was one of those that wouldn't let you wear make-up before a certain age, clear mascara was the product for you. Even though it did absolutely nothing.

Tooth gems. They were a 90s face staple, but did you know they're making a comeback?

Pop in some butterfly clips, slip on some jelly shoes and grab your bubble bag, and you were good to go.
