7 Cool New Makeup Products That Bring Us Back to the Early ’00sAugust 11, 2021
If you started wearing makeup in the early 2000’s, you might remember the cult-favorite jumbo eye pencils from NYX. These multi-use crayons just got a 2021 makeover and now come in 16 bold hues, including Matcha, a lime green, and Donut, a sparkling purple. Don’t worry, the classic shades Milk and Black Bean are still available, too!
Nude lips were a Y2K staple, which is why we can’t get enough of this neutral lip line. Les Nus has seven universal shades that enhance your natural lip color or add a flush of color depending on your makeup mood. Pair them with a lip liner for the ultimate early 2000’s look.
Frosty eye makeup is here to stay, and these Moondust shadows prove just that. From a glittery purple, to an olive, sparkling white, blue-brown and taupe, you can really get creative with your Y2K-inspired look.
We love a 2000’s-inspired taupey blush, and this lightweight balm is the perfect product to help you achieve it. Use it to add intensity and pigment to your cheeks and eyes for a grungy, matte makeup look.
Jelly pens were a crowd favorite during Y2K for good reason — they were fun to use, came in bright, poppy colors and felt like a toy in your hands. Kosas took this notion very seriously when creating its newest eyebrow pencil that comes in a pink jelly tube reminiscent of those rainbow pens. It gives you that nostalgic-feeling grip every time you use it.
Sparkling highlight was a must in the early 2000s, and this nostalgic-feeling highlighter can get the job done for you in 2021! It gives you a glimmery, sun-kissed finish and the packaging reminds us of our very first toy makeup kit (in the best way!).
