I’ve got another challenge entry!
If you’ve been around Clumps of Mascara for quick lil‘ minute, you know that I LOVE doing beauty challenges with my fellow beauty bloggin‘ sisters. I participated in the 80’s challenge, a Politically Pretty challenge, A Women’s History Month challenge and now it’s time to break out and do somethin‘ from the 90’s.
I am SUCH a 90’s baby, yall. Granted I was born in ’85 but I don’t remember anything about the ’80’s. I was a Spice Girl lovin‘, Family Matters’ watchin‘, Giga Pet havin‘ kid of the 90’s. And I am proud! A great deal of my older friend love picking for being so young but hey…I am a 90’s baby…and therefore I am cool.
My girl Amina over at Coup de Coeur spearheaded this challenge and she requested that we do looks inspired from 90’s girl groups. Dude, I didn’t even know where to begin because I LOVE so many. But I wanted to go with a group whose music I not only loved but thought that their images were somehow similar to mine—or vice versa.
Now in case you aren’t familiar with the dynamic harmonization that is Zhané, pronounced Jah-Nay, check out the video.
One of my college girls and I would sit and sing this song over and over. We could have been the next Zhané. Oh y’all didn’t know I could sing? Well uh…I try, I try. Teheheeee.
The ladies of Zhané have beautiful features that are never overdone with make-up. Did you watch the video? They have a bronzed look with brown lips. Their brows are defined with very little action goin’ on in the eye department. I tried to do the same but added my own little POP to it.
NARS Albatross highlighter (browbone)
MAC Cocobeach pigment (lid)
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero
L’Oreal Voluminous mascara
Cargo Bronzer in Dark
MAC Chestnut lip pencil
Kiss My Face Sheer Organic shine in Topaz
They are earthy ladies and since nature seems to hate me (see why in a post coming soon), I had to use my fake tree to get in on the action.
Rock on, ladies. And may the 90’s live forever!!
