As celebrities frequently teach us, everything that was old becomes new again. To compliment the return of the velour tracksuit, stars are bringing back the pastel eyeshadow, black eyeliner, and frosted looks of yesteryear. Behold, nine times celebrities wore 2000s-style makeup.

Colorful Lids

Remember the colorful eyeshadow palettes you could buy at Claire’s? In a selfie posted in the fall of 2020, actor Barbie Ferreira brings it all the way back to the early ‘00s in this chic recreation, featuring bold green lids.

Thin Brows

Always a style chameleon, Bella Hadid channels one of the most memorable Y2K beauty trends in this Instagram selfie from earlier 2021: thin but defined brows.

Glittery Lips

Naomi Campbell is one of the biggest supermodels of the past few decades, so she’s seen (and worn) all sorts of beauty looks. Here at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, the star rocks a glittery red lip — a makeup style that was huge in the early ‘00s.

Frosted Blue Shadow

If you don’t remember piling on pounds of the most frosted pastel eyeshadow you could find, did you actually live through the aughts? Doja Cat brings it all the way back with this ice queen look, which she posted on Instagram earlier this year.

Heavy Eyeliner

In a look that was so nostalgic and omnipresent in the early 2000s, Korean rapper Chaelin-Lee (aka CL) piled on the black eyeliner for this sultry Instagram shot from Nov. 2020.

Brown Makeup

In this brown and mauve glossy look posted on Instagram in Feb. 2021, Yara Shahidi looks like she just walked out of an Atomic Kitten music video—the ‘00s dream.

Pastel Shimmer

In Feb. 2021, Lana Condor wore a shimmery, glossy lip that is so reminiscent of the iconic Juicy Tubes that defined early ‘00s makeup — and she paired it with frosted pastel shadow with hints of shimmer (and pink hair!) for full nostalgia.

Monochromatic Shimmer

There was so much frost in the early aughts: frosted tips, frosted lips, frosted eyes. In an Instagram post from spring 2021, Dua Lipa uses shimmery lip gloss and eyeshadow to nail the nostalgic look.

Bold, Winged Liner

At a 2020 London Fashion Week party, Charli XCX’s nostalgic beauty look seems to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse — the 2000s queen of bold black eyeliner.
