#ThrowbackBeauty: Nostalgia-Evoking Products That I Am Still Pretty Into

A lot of people find themselves obsessing over the new “it” thing and in-the-moment beauty trends. But, sometimes it's really fun to take a look at some beauty trends from the past to get inspiration and remember where your love for beauty really began!

Here’s a little sneak peak at my beauty past.

1. Lip Smackers

Before my obsession with Lip Tars, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and Lush Fruit Lip Gloss began, I was obsessed—and I do mean OBSESSED—with everything popping out of Lip Smacker land. Not only are they super moisturizing and easy to just throw on, they also come in like a million amazing flavors. Root Beer, Coca-Cola and Skittles, you name it and it’s probably a Lip Smackers flavor. My favorite flavors they ever had were the Starburst Lip Smackers.

I wore these allllll day every day and probably ingested more of these than would be medically advised. 

2. Kool-Aid Makeup (And Other Creations)

I don’t know if anyone else did this or if it was just me, but Kool-Aid infused DIY beauty products were something that I was fascinated with. Lip stains, cheek stains and DIY hair dye were all fun beauty science experiments to do with Kool-Aid back in the day. So I was experimenting with DIY beauty long before I tried my hand at DIY oil slick hair, basically.

3. Cool-Toned Everything

I feel like in the early 2000’s it was all about cool tones and I loved it. Silvers, blues and baby pinks are all things that I absolutely loved.  Now don’t get me wrong, I adore a good swipe of sunkissed bronzer-y goodness and golds, but sometimes I wish that we could show the cool tones more love! A little silver lipstick never hurt anybody.

4. Fun Hair-Dos Without Loose Braids

Now I think all of those loose elaborate Instagram braids are beautiful, but I would love to get back into some weird Lizzie McGuire-esque hair ASAP. Hair clips, sections of crimped hair, random ponytails and/or buns shooting out of places, bring it back please! There are only so many pancaked side braids a girl can like on Instagram in a day.  If you need some Lizzie McGuire hair and fashion inspiration, check out 25 Important Fashion Lessons from “Lizzie McGuire from BuzzFeed  I died looking back at some of her looks, so fun. 

Okay, I'm bringing it back to current cosmetic trends now, but if you want to come reminisce with me on Twitter or Instagram, feel free!
