Whether it’s Dua Lipa donning vibrant eyeshadows or Kim Kardashian’s ombre lips- Y2K trends have become beauty person calling cards.

Since everything seems to circle back, the one beauty fad that’s making the rounds in 2021 is the 90s ombre lip trend. As much as we loved the look back when Jennifer Lopez and the Spice Girls were wearing it, the iterations sweeping the ‘gram right now are ultra-glam and are a great way to elevate even the most basic makeup look. You can wear it with a daytime look or for a big night out. Just prep your lips and focus the liner that’s 2 to 3 on the outer corner of your lips before lightly feathering it around the rest of the mouth. Fill it in with a peachy-nude hue. All you need is this liner and nude lipstick to master the now modernized old-school lip trend.

Beauty trends come and go, but some trends can stand the test of time, a glossy lip is one of ‘em. The trend has spread like wildfire and the spotlight on glossy lips has been shining brighter than ever. Thanks to the ultimate beauty queens aka the Jenners and Kardashians for their undeniable lip-centric influence. Everyone is crazy about glossy lips-  the glossier, the better. So we’ve listed our fave pigmented gloss that will help you perfect that pout.

Vibrant Eyeshadow

This list comprises trends of the moment and we can’t really do without including colourful eyeshadows in it. The Y2K era was all about pops of colours and that, of course, included eyeshadow. From purple to blue and lime green to pink, you can take whatever colour fits your look and vibe. Just pop it onto your eyelids and you’re good to go!

Accessories FTW!

From bandanas to barrettes and claw clips, hair accessories have become a key trend of the moment. The best bits? This newly evolved trend has a stamp of approval of our favourite fashion-forward celebs and we’re officially obsessed. Hair accessories were a big deal in the 90s – whether you’re going to college or just for a stroll in the mall, extra hair accessories were a must.  Lean into the ’90s look by adding some cute hair accessories to your stash. 

Frosty Eyeshadow

Frosty pastel eyeshadow was trending in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Pretty much everyone notices pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aquilera sporting the trend. And the lilac and lavender eyeshadow is big again. If you’re eyeing the much-anticipated purple eyeshadow moment, this palette will do the trick for you.

Get ready for some M.A.J.O.R Lizzie McGuire vibes.
