This 90s-Inspired Makeup & Style Challenge Is Taking Over The Internet

TikTok is proof that the internet was basically made for Black creatives and the latest makeup challenge that has taken the internet by storm is the best thing you'll see all day.

In a trend created by makeup artist, Queen Hollywood, mavens from all over the country channeled their inner Queen Bee for the #CrushOnYouChallenge and honey, they slayed.

Rocking nostalgia-worthy looks inspired by Lil' Kim's verse on the 1996 classic, these queens served us multi-colored looks for days and now we want to do it, too.

While some users gave us big '96 Kim energy with fur coats and wigs, some TikTokers put their own spin on the challenge by implementing ASL and colorful du rags and head wraps.
