Makeup trends come and makeup trends go—such is life. From Twiggy’s iconic eyelashes that defined the ’60s to the neon blush that took hold in the ’80s, there are more archived makeup trends out there than we can even count. But every so often we’re reminded of those beauty-related relics from the past that feel like they could fit right into the modern zeitgeist without a second thought.

That’s not to say that all of the makeup trends from that decade should make a comeback any time soon. (More on that later.) But, if you’re as nostalgic as we are, then you’ll appreciate this rundown of the five makeup trends from the MTV era that we would (and do!) wear right now. And to keep it all the way real, we’re also pinpointing the five we really don’t care to see again. Keep scrolling for the greatest makeup hits and the most epic makeup misses of the ’90s.
