Cop Kelly Kapowski's Beauty Look With This Rad Tutorial

When it comes to the pop culture influences of our youth, there really is no greater beauty idol than Saved By The Bell's Kelly Kapowski. She was everything we wanted to be in the early '90s, from her feathered 'do right on down to her majorly glossed-up lips and Bayside letter jacket. Some of us spent many an after-school afternoon trying to replicate her look whilst pining away for the blonde amazingness that was (and is, and forever will be) Mark-Paul Gosselaar's Zack Morris.

Since (almost) everything '90s is cool once again, it was only a matter of time before someone resuscitated Kelly's Bayside High hotness. Turns out, Annie over at xoVain is just the girl to do it — and it helps that she already kind of looks like her, despite the fact that she's a little too young to fully appreciate this gift that the gods of '90s nostalgia have bestowed upon her.
Through a special combo of self-tanner, fluffy hair, "ruddy apricot" lip gloss, and... magic, we're pretty convinced that this beauty blogger is Kapowski, reincarnated. While her light wash, high-waisted jeans do look slightly painful, we're thrilled to note that Kelly Kapowski's beauty look is just as relevant today. So what if she was a high school student? True beauty knows no age. Go check out this super in-depth tutorial, and then let us know if you'll be bringing the Kapowski back, too. (XOvain)
