90s Make-Up: the guide: make-up history from 1994 to 1996

Eccoci quindi alla seconda parte relativa alla storia del trucco anni ’90. In quest analizzo per voi la storia del Make-Up del 1994, 1995, 1996.

Sono diverse le tendenze, gli stili si sovrappongono, ma ci sono degli evidenti punti fermi:

  1. Il minimalismo avanza, conducendoci verso il 2000, il trucco si fa sempre più naturale, andando verso il Make-Up no Make-Up
  2. “Bon Chic Bon Genre” per un aspetto elegante senza eccessi
  3. Il vintage impera. Si assiste a una rielaborazione di stili che in questo periodo fanno tornare alla moda il trucco 60s, fine 70s e 80s, per un aspetto rock e neo gotico. Non mancano riferimenti etnici e neo barocchi.
  4. Il look etnico anni ’70 viene rielaborato in un nuovo aspetto tribale e cibernetico.
  5. In linea con la tendenza Cyber Punk nel 1994 esplode il colore che passa dai capelli al volto. La base resta sempre chiara, semplice, ma i toni rosa e azzurro accendono labbra, zigomi, palpebre.

Nel mio prossimo post per voi, la storia del trucco dal 1997 al 1999.

So here we are in the second part related to the history of the 90s makeup. In this I analyze for you the story of the Make-Up of 1994, 1995, 1996.

There are several trends, the styles overlap, but there are some evident fixed points:

  1. Minimalism advances, leading us to the year 2000, make-up becomes more natural, going towards Make-Up no Make-Up.
  2. “Bon Chic Bon Genre” for an elegant appearance without excess.
  3. Vintage reigns. We are witnessing a reworking of styles that in this period make the 60s, late 70s and 80s make-up return to fashion, for a rock and neo-Gothic look. There is no lack of ethnic and neo-baroque references.
  4. The ethnic look of the 70s is transformed into an ethnic cinebernetic look.
  5. In line with the Cyber Punk trend in 1994 the color that passes from hair to face explodes. The base is always clear, simple, but the pink and blue tones light up lips, cheekbones, eyelids.

In my next post for you, the history of makeup from 1997 to 1999.
