Don’t forget to apply your frosted eye shadow ALL the way up to your pencil-thin eyebrows, and only use 1 color for that 90s look.

Industrial-strength Aquanet was the hairspray of choice in the 90s, but this conditioning spray is FAR kinder to hair.

It’s not a 1999 look without a French manicure – and these press-on nails are way easier than trying to DIY the perfect white line.

We’re digging the Princess Diana post-divorce-out-on-the-town vibes this puffy-sleeved blouse is giving off.
