You don’t need us to tell you that the perpetual influence of the 2000s seems to never fade out, and for good reason. Just consider how the hashtag #Y2K has amassed a whopping 6.2 billion views on TikTok as of press time. That era served up some of pop culture’s most notable beauty looks, from pop princess Christina Aguilera’s ultra frosted makeup, to the ultimate cool girl Drew Barrymore’s super skinny brows.
This revitalisation of the Y2K trends isn’t one you can simply dodge – celebs such as Dua Lipa and Bella Hadid have been denoted as the ultimate 2000’s muses at the forefront of this trend. Who could forget when the latter had everyone reaching for their eyebrow razor after she was seen sporting majorly skinny brows last year?
Scroll on for our roundup of decade-defining beauty looks – accompanied with expert tips from makeup artist and hairstylist vet Sha Shamsi, hair pro Junz Loke and Y2K makeup artist Sarah Tan – and the products you’ll need to recreate them.
