4 Y2K Beauty Trends You Need To Try
by Ready To Wear Beauty Shopping , Makeup Product Brand
It’s official: The 2000’s aesthetic is back with a vengeance, which explains why you have been seeing low-rise jeans and butterfly clips everywhere. And it looks like it isn’t going anywhere soon, considering the hashtag #Y2K has almost 2.5 billion videos on TikTok alone. In a post-pandemic world, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. We spent so many months in quarantine, many of us away from family and friends, which inevitably forced us to seek solace in nostalgia. Maybe we all wanted the warmth and comfort of a simpler time when matching your eye shadow to your top was the biggest issue. So, with that in mind, this recent comeback of some of the most polarizing Y2K beauty trends can probably be excused. Also, the good news is that each of these trends has reemerged with its own unique, modern twist. So, get your eyebrow defined pencils out and try some of these most popular Y2K beauty trends:
Eyebrows in the ‘00s were thin. Really thin. They were so thin that you almost had to use a magnifying glass to see them. But don’t worry. You don’t need to ruin your natural eyebrow shape for this. Instead of plucking your brows into non-existence, use makeup. Now that we have access to more makeup products and tools than ever, you can get your eyebrows to look thin simply by using a generous slathering of concealer.
The last couple of years may have made neutrals a mainstay in the beauty world but this year, it is all about color and glitter, particularly blue. In the early 2000s, eye makeup used to be vibrant, playful, and not very precise (there were definitely no cut creases). Blue eye shadow, in particular, was incredibly popular. Now, you can get that same playfulness with pastels.
Visible Lip Liner
The visible lip liner is probably one of those big beauty trends that are synonymous with the Y2K aesthetic. Made popular by black women in the ‘90s and ‘00s, the visible liner is a quick way to achieve the look of fuller lips. But instead of the stark contrast between the liner and the lipstick in the past, now you can blend the two to get a softer yet more dramatic effect.
We all love our lipsticks but there’s something to be said about a good ol’ lip glass. The 2000s saw our favorite celebrities appear on music videos and grace red carpets with glossy, pouty pink lips. And that style is back, albeit with a slightly different look. You can embrace this trend and give it your own touch by choosing more mature shades like red or maybe even clear gloss.
To nail your Y2K look, or any makeup look for that matter, make sure you invest in some high-quality products by reputable brands. For instance, the eyebrow extension powder by Ready to Wear New York is a great choice to fill in your sparse brows.
