Certain 1990s beauty trends should forever remain in the ’90s—think hair mascara and lavender eyeshadow— but tawny and brown lip tones are well worth revisiting. Remember how sultry Sarah Michelle Gellar made coffee-coloured lips look in Cruel Intentions? Or the way Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Aniston rocked tawny and taupe? Trust me, there’s something about a good copper or biscuit brown that simultaneously screams girl power and sex appeal. It’s best to keep the rest of your make-up subdued. Feeling shy? Add gloss for a softer look.
