These Stars Prove Dark '90s Lipstick Is Eternally Cool

This makeup look isn't for wallflowers.

There aren't many trends from the '90s that we love to revisit, but dark lipstick will never go out of style.

Goth girls owned the look back then with their vampy pouts. Meg Ryan, Halle Berry and Gwen Stefani gave it a glamorous touch for the red carpet. Today, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Kylie Jenner have made '90s dark lips modern and fresh by wearing theirs with statement-making hairstyles and eclectic accessories.

Thankfully, you don't have to be a fashion risk-taker or a celebrity to pull off dark lips. There's a deep shade of red, plum, or burgundy out there that complements your unique skin tone. Plus, you can keep it simple with minimal makeup or go dramatic with your eyeliner.

Scroll down to see how stars wore dark lipstick back then compared to now. Plus, watch the video below to learn how to recreate this sultry look.
