Katie Cassidy Goes, Like, Totally '90s

If there's someone who could make '90s grunge flat-out hot, it's Arrow star Katie Cassidy. The actress (and budding lifestyle guru — watch out, GP and Blake) recently modeled throwback looks for BeautyHigh, and we're smitten with the too-cool-for-school vibe of the Clueless-style beauty looks.
From cool taupe shadow to deep burgundy lips, the looks mix grunge and glam — a blend that describes Cassidy herself. In the interview portion of the feature, the actress mentions how she's drawn to film projects that have a dark twist (such as her upcoming independent feature The Scribbler, co-starring our main lady Gina Gershon).

When it comes to her style, Cassidy is decidedly low-maintenance (her go-to skin-care trick simply involves applying an ice pack to her face to get rid of swelling), and yet she loves being a girl. Case in point? Her favorite '90s beauty comeback is none other than long, acrylic red nails. Well, what's wrong with being a study in contrasts, anyway? (BeautyHigh)
