Throwback: Beauty Products of the 90s

Since i spent most of my teenage years in the 90s and it was when i first started experimenting with different beauty products…i wasn’t allowed to touch my mums small collection of lipsticks. Mum is a natural beauty and doesn’t wear much slap 🙂

Lets take a trip down old memory lane and see what i found/remembered:

Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer

My first item of make up i owned that i just used to apply under my eyes and on my spots i must of looked a right plank. I think that Rimmel still make the exact same concealer.

Bourjois Volume Clubbing Blue Mascara

Blue mascara was the rage i really dunno why as it looked bloody hideous well it did on me but because i wanted to fit in i wore it hideously well.

Wella Shaders & Toners

I bought these literally every week as my mum used to say your not old enough to start messing about with your hair. They were Cheap too so spending a little pocket money on them was well worth it.

 

The Signature Scent 

In my school bag was always a Charlie Pink. i didn’t understand when people had the red or the black one. Guess my obsession for pink started then.

Every Christmas my mum would slip a Tommy Girl into my stocking it was tradition and my brother had the male equivalent.

The exclamation was what my sister used to wear i wasn’t a fan but when i had forgot my Charlie it was better than nothing.

All three of these are still available to buy shows that some things never go out of fashion.

Johnsons Holiday Skin

I can’t help but laugh. I had gone a bit silly with it as i thought it was idiot proof but i had started gradually doing it on my arms and then distributing to other areas of my body only for it to be patchy and streaky as hell. Mum had to scrub me to get it off. Lets just say it went in the bin once used…Never again.

Johnsons Baby Powder

The days before Batiste Dry Shampoo came good old Talc. On the days when i just couldn’t be assed to wash my hair so i supported a slap head ponytail and a fluffy full fringe what an attractive look.

I blame the products for my mishaps…if they hadn’t of made them i wouldn’t have looked so silly.

But hey lessons are learnt growing up and the 90s was memorable for sure.

Throwback Thursday: What was I wearing…mum what were you thinking?

I am going to take you back to when I was young and carefree and it seems my mum was carefree too…apparently the clothes I wore was all the rage back then..ok mother I believe you.

I was about 4 and 6 here and to be fair i think i look alright. I have an absolute legend on board..Roland Rat. Still have him now.  These are the two most sensible pics out of all of the ones that I’m going to show you.

My tights matched my coat cuffs so i did have some style back then and i actually like the pink dress i have on too.

You know when you start to remember things? i must have been 5 as i remember the dodgy full fringe i had when i started school and every party i had out came the sailor dress. i bet mum got teary when it wouldn’t fit me anymore. The coat was out of a catalogue and looks like shell suit patterns…please don’t let that trend come back in once is enough.

The lucky thing about having a sibling is your parents don’t need to fork out too much you just get the older ones hand me downs that are usually too big however me and Craig loved the turtles so I didn’t complain on this occasion.

I have to take full responsibility for these two outfit choices. The pink chords were a fashion statement i wanted to be different and the tinsel tie and white shoes were for Christmas at my after school job. Both look absolutely  hideous but i didn’t think so at the time.

To End my throwback post today i thought I’d add a video in too {hand over face)
