How do you know that someone is a 90s kid? Because they never shut up about it.

Well, we’ve got good reason! We were born into an age of prosperity and progressive values! Plus supermodels! Goosebumps! Jelly shoes! AOL! Beauty and the Beast! And did I mention supermodels?

Whenever I think of the 90s, I get sadhappy. Sad that my childhood is over, happy that I got to live through the Clinton years.

Lately though, I am just happy. Why? Because I see 90s nostalgia walking down the runaway. The 90s have exploded all over the beauty blogosphere, and nothing has made me happier.

Remember the Pepsi Ad? Everyone in my neighborhood tried to imitate Cindy’s look for about 5 years after that: big hair, big hoops, jeans & tank top.

You get extra bonus points if you know what this is: it’s Club Monaco’s Sheer Lipstick in Glaze, as worn by Monica Lewinksy in her interview with Barbara Walters in 1999…the interview caused sales of the product to spike.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch! I just stuck that in here because I loved the show!

So I’ve been on a real 90s kick. I used to be afraid to use dark, bold colors, especially on my lips, because I’m on the fair side. But a dark berry is great for me, especially if it’s matte (to creat the ultimate 90s effect)

I use BareMinerals lip liner in Natural to line my lips. I then smudge the line with my pinky.

Then I add a berry lipstick. Right now I’m using

BareMinerals lipstick in Berry Glace,

or

Covergirl Flipstick in Vixen (which I got super-cheap with a coupon!)

or, if you really want to be hardcore…

Revlon Matte Lipstick in Wine Not

I blot, reapply, blot again. I keep the eyes pretty simple, usually with liner and mascara only, but neutral shadows work for night. It’s enought of a flashback to be sweet and nostalgic, rather than just looking dated.

So, what’s your 90s beauty throwback?

Morgana Cryptoria Interview!

[Images sourced from morganacryptoria.com]

It’s always exciting to explore Indie brands because this is where you often find “anti-establishment” colors and formulas, and we often forget that well-known names like Sugarpill, Lime Crime, and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics all started out from humbler roots.

If you get excited by the thought of wearing metallic royal purple and duo-chrome green on your LIPS, but haven’t heard of Morgana Cryptoria yet, this is a brand to check out. I’ve only just read about it and contacted founder Melissa, who kindly agreed to a short interview on all things beauty!

1. How would you describe your personal approach to makeup and beauty in general?
Ans:  Have fun creating your own style! Don’t be shy about trying makeup or apparel that is out of your comfort zone. 


2. Your products are designed to REALLY make a statement. How did the idea first come about to create colors like these?
Ans:  It was always very difficult to find odd lipstick colors or very pale/white foundation shades.
I was so bored with 95% of cosmetics land. I wanted to provide people (and myself) with harder to find shades. I am proud to offer a wide variety of unique colors in my shop. I also make custom shades by request. 


3. Who/what are your beauty and style inspirations?
Ans:  I’ve seen some amazing makeup application skills & designs from beauty bloggers, MUAs & cosplayers. Such talent! They are very inspiring! I am thrilled to see them use my products in their looks. 


4. What’s the earliest memory of makeup that you can recall?
Ans:  My mom was pretty cool about letting me have makeup early on. I would always head over to the makeup section of stores when I was a kid. Then after that, right over to the electronics department. I love gadgets! 


5. Aside from your own creations, are there other beauty brands that you enjoy using?
Ans:  Honestly, I only buy mascara and nail polish. I use my own brand for everything else. Nail polish might be added to my line as early as October. Making nail polish is something I plan on delving into very soon. 

6. Name one imperfection of yours that you like, and tell us why!
Ans:  I have a tiny dot of graphite under my skin near one of my knees. When I was a kid, a pencil was poking out of my school bag and poked into my leg. The mark is still there after 25 years. Whenever I look at it, it makes me feel nostalgic for childhood. 


7. What 3 products can you absolutely NOT live without right now?
Ans:  Physicians Formula eye makeup remover pads! For B&B, I love Haus of Gloi bubbling scrubs and pumpkin butters. 


8. What is the TOP “Must-have” item someone new to your line should try out first?

Ans: That’s a tough question! hmmm….My lipsticks get the most attention, but for a first order I’m going to suggest one of my *soon to be released lip gels or slimline lipsticks. They will be available August 7th, along with a few eye/lip pencils. [*Note: interview was conducted before 7th.]

Morgana Cryptoria ships internationally.
