The Tackiest 90s Looks We All Definitely Made Our Mamas Let Us Try

As Latinas, proven pioneers and trendsetters of style, there’s no doubting the fact that the ’90s was a decade of true exploration for us. But just in case you need it, here’s the proof:

1. You pulled specialty designs through your hair part because YAS.

The bigger the zig-zag, the better.

2. Your weekend vibe was all about a bandana tied with a cute peasant knot.

Extra puntos if you did it with tendrils.

3. You wore brown lip liner to give your admirers something to think about.

Forget the haters who said you looked like you’d just eaten Oreos. You’d do this look again if you could just get your hands on the right burgundy liner and some Carmex.

4. Crimped hair was your go-to “it girl” look.

And, girl, you looked muy linda.

5. Butterfly clips with a flat twist kept you grounded.

If you’re not doing this look when you’re putting your makeup on for a night out, you’re not doing makeup right.

6. That side-swept bang you wore because it was super chic.

Even if your hairs threatened to cut up your eyeball, you rocked this look with pride and confidence. #beautyisdangerous

7. Your bumped bangs were nothing short of bumpin’.

IF you could get out of the house without mama setting her sights on your hombros descubiertos.

Fans love Lucille Ball so much that when Besamé Cosmetics launched a collection dedicated to her back in June all of its items were sold out within a matter of twelve hours. The collection paid homage to the beauty of the iconic Hollywood comedian who, alongside her husband (Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz), starred in the television classic “I Love Lucy.”

Now, the souped-up limited-edition Lucy items are back by popular demand.

The launch date? This September.

Lucy fans can pre-order lipstick of the new line on the brand’s website.

“Already, hundreds of orders have come in to pre-order these colors inspired by classic Lucy looks,” a representative from Besamé told Allure about the line which pays homage to the iconic actress’s signature look.

The retro makeup line gives fans a chance to seize up to seven beauty items that are supposed to match the makeup Ball wore in her days of stardom. The Ball collection comes complete with an eye shadow palette, lipstick, a pressed powder compact, and a pencil set for eyes and lips.

Like every Besamé item, the collection’s products are encased in rounded gold. This time, however, they come with a special design that features an original drawing of the actress.

The collection can be purchased as a bundle for $150. Additional gifted items will be included for the whole bunch.

According to Allure, those who purchase the collection will receive “two additional and exclusive products: an I Love Lucy tote bag and a set of false lashes the brand says ‘are based on the exact size, shape, and color that Lucille Ball wore.'”

The Lucille Ball collection is just the first in a new collection by Besamé.

Besamé has stated that they intend on producing an Iconic Women Series featuring iconic figures from history. It’s unknown as of yet who else will be featured on the upcoming products but we’re crossing our fingers for Latina icons like Dolores Huerta, Celia Cruz, and Rita Moreno.

Pelo. Whether we grow it, curl, straighten it, or shave it we sure can’t seem to get enough of it. While, of course, we understand that having hair does not define us, for so many of us it means so much. After a recent stunning post, we found on Instagram posted by @goddess.veil we decided to ask Latinas the ultimate question.

“How would you describe your natural hair?”

And as it turns out, Latinas had quite a bit to say. Check it out below.

This chica described it as her BFF.

“El frizz y volumen mis mejores amigos!!” –beaamartz

“My hair is naturally red, extremely thick, coarse, and wavy. I even had a hairdresser compare it to llama wool I have learned how to take better care of it now that I’m older and not hate it anymore.”- katy_katie_katu_kat

And so many chicas called it wild and loved.

“Wild, free and unapologetic! I’m so glad I never listened to all the negative people that used to tell me to straighten my hair…no heat damage over here boo.” – lizbeth_ariana

“My glory it’s long curly and rebellious lol no matter what products I put in it does it’s own thing so I’ve embraced my natural curls and baby hair and even my natural color.” – ari_sotof

“Wild.” – tatismoreira

“God-gifted.” – jcarcreative

Greñuda and perfect.

“Greñuda con estilo.” – jannexees

“Free.” – storyexploratory

A fighter.

“Wanna be curly but wavy to frizzy on it’s best day. Can’t make up its mind but has a mind if it’s own until I bring out the straightener and we duke it out. The heat always wins!!” – tiazoom

“A natural flow with some wave.” – lidi83

Long and strong with the power and beauty passed onto to me by my ancestors.” – bri_g16

The indicator of my many moods lol depending on how I have it represents my mood of the day.” – jenivy09

Full of Vida is our favorite way to describe it.

“Wavy and full of vida.” – misdaisy

And we can’t help but tear up a little bit over this description as a protector.

It’s my protector, lays long as rapunzels in the stories, part of my identity and soars as the birds in skies and as blessed as God made me. HAPPY WARRIOR WEDNESDAY MIS GUERRERAS AND SISTERS! BLESSINGS ON THIS RISING!” – brightdollface
