I’m gonna go with the “Hair Mascara” on this one – you know what I’m talking about. Disco-Glitter and Neon coloured temporary streaks in your hair! If only they could make them less… crunchy… when they dried, haha!

I’m pretty sure that you can still find hair mascara. I am sure I have seen it recently. Don’t know where you reside. I’m in Toronto. But yeah, hair mascara was awesome. I used it a lot back in the day.

Maybe that 80’s trend of faking a beauty mark. I wasn’t born yet when this was in style, but I think channeling your inner Marilyn Monroe would be fun.

I don’t want any specific trend but I want MAC nude rose lipstick to come back….I am using my third backup and I don’t have any left….

I wish all the MAC collections would come back at some point. I keep looking through the swatch galleries to find colors I would love to try only to see they’re from Limited Edition Collections!

I tend to look out more for different KINDS of products. New foundation and eye shadow consistencies, gel liners (hey, they were new once), lip gloss (ditto), lip tars (WOOHOO!), really dramatic false lashes like the Shu Uemura WKW Dance in Glitter ones (best buy ever!) and the like.

Textured eye shadow. Chunky gel liner applied with a toothbrush around the eye, gritty-looking gold glitter, smooth metallic cream eye shadows…it was very glam goth and experimental. I liked that individuals had their own twists on each look because they were impossible to replicate perfectly. Very unique trend.

I’d love to see the 90’s back, I mean an almost bare eye (mascara + a little eyeliner that’s it – no shadow!!) and obvious, matte lips (in darker shades,like copper). Pale face, no blush – almost.
Can you remeber Gwyneth Paltrow in Sliding Doors? I mean that look. Simple, clean and very sophisiticated. I am currently so fed up with smokey eyes everywhere!

LOL!! I was contemplating whether I’d like to see this again before I read down to your post!! My friends and I were totally poster girls for this look 🙂 I went through several tubes of Revlon’s Toast of New York and Bonne Bell’s lipliner in Chutney. It was the perfect matte brown lip 😉

Maybe because I grew up in the nineties….this is how I wear eye makeup, haha! I have class pictures with this look. Let’s bring it back!!

I don’t follow trends..it’s more what I think suits me and I feel comfortable in. But I do agree with you Christine – I absolutely love coral lips, anytime of the year 🙂

I don’t really follow make-up trends. By now I finally know what looks good on me and what’s an absolute no-go makeup-wise, so I try to follow my own personal beauty rules instead of trends.

I agree! If something like nude lips were a trend, I wouldn’t do it because they make me look like a corpse! High contrast girls for the win1 XD

Coral lips are my thing which is why I grabbing MAC LE lipstick also the time are they never put anything permanent out there. ^___^

Blue and teal eyeshadows! I sick of purple being a “standard” colour because it just doesn’t look good on me.

I nostalgically miss the 1999 trend of applying glitter on your cheekbones. Bonne Bell had some cheap scented glitter gel just for that purpose, and everyone owned a tube. All the girls in my grade 7 class looked like disco balls.

That was me!! If it came back into style I’d be all over that, even though I’m closer to 30 now! Hahahah! Bring on the glitter!

I remember those days! I still keep my cheapie tubes of face glitter in my vanity from years ago, for nostalgic purposes as well lol. As if it will come back and be appropriate for a 20 something to walk around with. A girl can wish lol!!

I’m not a trend hunter, either. If I see a look I like, I try to copy it, but I don’t actively reorganize my collection to fit a current look.

I will say that I’d love to see more women sporting a fierce cat eye. I’ve got an electric blue one on today. 8D

I don’t know if this was ever a trend, maybe only in my book, but I would love to see people rocking the fuschia/ purple lipstick look. I am really wanting to wear my mac violetta lipstick without getting a billion stares like im some weirdo lol.

yes! purple lipstick is hardly “acceptable” in public.. you tend to get the strange look. i find it easier if its a dress up party or if i town down the purple to more a fushia/pink.
but not since the colour blocking trend is in-im sure it should be too hard to pull off..

I don’t wear purple quite as often because it requires more work, but I rock the hell out of fuschia on a regular basis. HATERS GONNA HATE.

Maybe for a second, I’d want the doo-doo brown (sorry, but seriously, that was the color of it!) lipstick we wore in 1997, 1998 to come back.
